John Salih (pronounced "Solly") started
music in the mid 60's in Dallas Texas playing lead guitar in the
"Novas". It was an extremely popular group with flawless three part
harmonies. They became well known for their performances of songs
such as "Bus Stop" by The Hollies, "Rock and Roll Woman" by the
Buffalo Springfield, "Help" and a lot of other tunes by The Beatles.
After the addition of a Rickenbacker 12 string, they covered many
songs by The Byrds. While still in high school, they played on the
same bill with national touring acts such as Mitch Ryder and the
Detroit Wheels, Paul Revere and the Raiders, and The Spencer Davis
The Novas made frequent appearances on a local TV show called "Sump'n

"William Junior" which peaked at #14 on the local charts. This song
and other recordings by The Novas were released as a cd on the
Collectables label in 1996.

of the day as Sly and the Family Stone, Three Dog Night, and Spirit.
After a couple of years in L.A. John moved back to Dallas where he

for the likes of the Everly Brothers and the great jazz pianist
Erroll Garner. After about a year the band broke up and John began
playing bars, restaurants, and hotel lounges as a solo piano
In 1982, he began working in, and eventually managing, the family
