From police officer to rock, Jonny Goood has actually experienced 2 various sides of the general public spotlight. 

While the artist has actually enhanced lots of phases with Lady Gaga, there was a time when Goood, née Jonathan Drummond, lugged a badge rather of a bass guitar. 

“I come from a long line of police officers,” Goood informed E! News in an unique interview. “My dad’s been a cop for 30 years, he’s now a sergeant, and I have an older brother who’s also a police officer. I grew up wanting to do the same thing.”

In his early twenties, he served with the Savannah Police Department, though his profession would ultimately take an unanticipated turn. “I was a cop, but I also started realizing I had a small musical gift. I would pick up my bass guitar and just practice,” he remembered. “One day, after 2 years of playing, I wished to attempt [to] break brand-new ground.” With about $300, Goood avoided to Los Angeles and ultimately got the opportunity to deal with Keyshia ColeMiley Cyrus, Joe JonasThe Weeknd and Wiz Khalifa. 

“Then, I got a call to work with Lady Gaga,” he stated. “That’s been the height of my career—I got to play the Super Bowl and the Oscars, the Grammys, Coachella. It was quite the switch, I like to say from cop to rock. I thought I was going to be a cop my entire life. It was a gamble.”

While he had the ability to attain his musical dream, Goood was undoubtedly torn about leaving police.
