From humble beginnings in the Gorbals, Glasgow, to a well-known name in the bar scene of Jersey, Johnny Young has seen and done a lot in his sixty years. Born to a hardworking mother and a father who died tragically young, Johnny fought hard to make a career for himself, first with ambitions of becoming a footballer, and then working his way from a doorman at a club, to owning and running multiple bars and clubs in Jersey - all to pay off his long-suffering mother's mortgage.
In these memoirs, follow his successes and failures, his promotions and setbacks, and his highlights, and heartbreaks. Forever Young is a tale about family, friendship, and overcoming obstacles in life, no matter how big or small.

Johnny Young

My daughter was always saying to me that I should write a story about my life, and now that she is an actor, she suggested I could make a movie about my life. I decided to write this book about my life during lockdown due to Covid. I have three great kids who I fully support, whatever they choose to do in life. I keep fit, eat healthy and I still work as a Nightclub Manager. I teach personal fitness and I am a qualified plant-based nutrition coach.
