Quite the hands on mentor, the 42-year-old admitted "I listened to 800 bands that takes a long time - I don't think they quite believed me."
Excited about the Guinness Amplify campaign, Jonny revealed he got involved as it wasn't a band competition with one winner but rather helped a number of new artists and bands.
Chatting about his new role, he excitedly said "speak to people in studio, talk to the artists and give them some of my experience."
