A one-time theater pupil at the College or university of Nebraska, John Madden used in the College or university of Colorado and graduated using a B.A. in mindset and became a rules student. After that music beckoned within the guise of an organization come up with by Bryan Sennett, eventually known as the Serendipity Performers, who required Madden’s talents being a multi-instrumentalist. Especially with his abilities for the 12-string electric guitar, Madden was the virtuoso backbone of the group throughout their two-year heyday near the top of the folk revival picture. Alongside Sennett, Madden was also among the two primary songwriters within the group.
