Jellybean Johnson (b. Garry George Johnson November 19, 1956 in Chicago, Illinois) is a drummer, guitarist, songwriter, producer and musician based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The drummer of the lengendary band The Time (along with famed producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis), he went on to help record several songs with other artists including Alexander O'Neal, Cherrelle and most notably with Janet Jackson.
After the breakup of The Time, drummer/percussionust Johnson decided to work as a producer/musician/songwriter, and eventually became a long-time associate of Flyte Tyme Productions. His first session job was as a musician for Alexander O'Neal's #11 R&B hit "Innocent" (produced by Time bandmates Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis). On the track, he delivered the scorching guitar solos for the second half of the ten-minute long song.
From that point on, he was in-demand as a session guitarist (and drummer/percussionist) for Janet Jackson, Alexander O'Neal, New Edition, and many others. Throughout his career, he has also produced a number of hits for Alexander O'Neal, New Edition and more. But it wasn't until 1989 when he would co-produce (with Janet Jackson) his biggest hit to date: Janet Jackson's heavy metal/rock inspired #1 smash hit "Black Cat." He has also co-prodcued Mint Condition's entire debut album 'Meant to Be Mint.'
