New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/18/2014 -- Who is "Big John"?
Networking guru, John Gellineau, has been moving and shaking behind the scenes through the music industry since the age of 12. One of Def Jam Records' original DJs, John was mentored by founder, Russell Simmons.
Years would follow and John eventually became a bodyguard to the stars, working venues such as the Apollo Theatre and Yankee Stadium. Opportunities laid would lead John to land a client and 30 plus year friendship in Hip Hop Icon, Public Enemy's, Flavor Flav. Today, Big John currently continues to work with Flavor Flav as his assistant and head bodyguard, ever vigilent in Public Enemy's endeavors on and off stage.
Despite being diagnosed with diabetes and a series of consistent medical setbacks, John maneuvers brilliantly through the commercialized hustle and bustle of New York City's entertainment circuit. July 26, marks the 50th anniversary of his life and all are invited to partake.
