John Townley (2)

Profile:
American sound engineer & recording artist. Married to Gilly Townley.
Townley was the founder & creator of New York's Apostolic Studios, situated at Tenth Street, New York City. The studio was a popular hangout for Frank Zappa and those associated with him.
With tech work from Lou Lindauer, a 'bumped-up' 12-track (12 being the 'magic' figure which inspired the Apostolic name) and skills of engineer Tony Bongiovi (brother of Jon Bonjovi) the studio finally broke the mold on straight-jacketed recording facilities. Similar studios, like Record Plant and Electric Lady, soon followed.
Townley continues to work at the studio.

From 1965-1966 Townley was a guitarist in the Magicians, who are featured on the garage rock compilation Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965–1968.

Discogs is full of bogus information ...above for instance states Tony Bongiovi is the "brother" of Jon Bon Jovi...he's Bon Jovi's uncle. On another page it has him ( Tony ) as his nephew...
