Congratulations to Johnny who married his long-time girlfriend on the 20th of January 2000.

Here's the press article :
Texas Star Johnny Didn't Want Just A Lover - So He Made Her His Wife.
TEXAS star Johnny McLehone finally married his long-time girlfriend yesterday.
The rest of the band were there to see him tie the knot with Janice Chalmers in a quiet register office ceremony in Glasgow.
The couple have been together for 15 years and have two sons, aged nine and six.
Johnny, who used to be in Altered Images and Hipsway, proposed two weeks ago during a rare break from recording and touring.
He said: "It was a spur of the moment decision. Our two children are getting older and we thought this would be a good time."
After the wedding, the happy couple were joined by 25 friends and family for a reception at a city centre hotel.
The guests included Texas bandmates Eddie, Aly McErlane and singer Sharleen Spiteri, who was there with her fashion-guru boyfriend Ashley Heath.
She described it as a "lovely and touching" ceremony, but revealed she was in no hurry to follow suit.
She said: "I don't need inspiration and there are no plans for me to wed just yet."
Johnny and Janice won't be having a honeymoon - the band are off to France tomorrow for an awards ceremony.
From The Daily Record - Friday January 21, 12:00 AM.

From the whole TOL Paris crew : Very Best Wishes to Mr and Mrs MacElhone.

stay cool !

Johnny is probably the 'Head' of Texas; That's him who formed the band around 1988, who found Sharleen when she was just a hairdresser !
Before joining Texas, he played for some other bands : 'Hipsway' and 'Altered Images'.
Johnny is the oldest in the band, but the more experimented. Beside playing in the band, he also produces the Texas records.

Johnny is not very talkative, and that's why we don't know much about him !
