Johnnie Moylett (AKA Johnnie Fingers) is an Irish keyboardist, and founding member of The Boomtown Rats.
Johnnie was known for his signature look of striped pyjamas on stage, as well as his distinct melodic piano style. Coming from a family of actors, artists and musicians, Johnnie’s entry into the music world was inevitable and, having learned the piano from a young age, he was a founding member of The Boomtown Rats, who formed in Ireland in 1975. The group went on to have a series of hits between 1977 and 1985.
Following the breakup of the band, he went on to form Gung~Ho with Simon Crowe and Yoko Kurokawa in 1987.
With The Boomtown Rats, Johnnie penned massive hits like ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’ and punk favourite ‘She’s So Modern’, as well as tracks from several classic Rats albums alongside Bob Geldof. The catalogue also includes tracks from Gung~Ho such as ‘Burnin’ Out,’ and ‘Play to Win.’
