Bill Johnson, long time head of the CBS/Sony Music’s Creative Department, (before its merger with BMG), has been diagnosed with lung cancer and is now undergoing treatment. Johnson was instrumental in most all graphical images, album covers and sales pieces that the label produced during that era. He also designed the MusicRow logo that is still used today.
Presently Bill is undergoing chemo and radiation treatments, but remains in good spirits. “It’s a roller coaster ride, but all in all I’m doing OK,” says Johnson. “Cynda has been by my side every minute, monitoring medical treatment, giving me total home care and loving me.”
Bill admits, “There are so many friends I would like to connect with but I’m either in treatment or sleeping. I wake up with a list of things to accomplish for the day, but then don’t have the energy for getting anything done.”
Get well soon, Bill!
