Drinks With Johnny

After touring the world with Avenged Sevenfold for 20 years, Johnny Christ sits down to have conversations with some old friends, some new friends, and people of all different walks of life to hear the stories that shaped their lives and careers.


The truth is, we never really know where these conversations are going to go. Sometimes we play a game for some less than thrilling penalties, get lost in the middle of LA, and even just kick back to celebrate a holiday or two. 


Sometimes we drink, other times we don’t drink at all. From cocktails to health shakes, the drink is just a nice icebreaker to loosen up our guests for the wild ride they’re about to embark upon. Whatever it is you're looking for, we're sure to have it on the menu here at Drinks With Johnny.


So stay tuned, stay thirsty, and stay FILTHY AF!
