History

Cotton was formed in 1975 by Jon and his friend Mike Noble. Originally Cotton was an acoustic trio performing at retirement villages and nursing homes for food and gas money. Our 1st show was at the Brewery in Troy Ohio. We got the gig by telling them we were a Canadian band. We had to talk like we had an accent for a few months though. Mike left the band to pursue a solo career. Over the years there have been soooo many members of Cotton, but one constant remains the same .... John Stanley IS Cotton!

It's good to have Danny and Sco with me. And Cotton is complete with my friend and the best guitar player in Dayton, BOB PATRICK.
