Was a friend of Michael Nesmith in Texas; years before the Monkees, London and Nesmith were part of a trio called Mike, John & Bill (with friend Bill Sleeper). The trio broke up when Sleeper was drafted into the U.S. Army.
Moved to California around the same time as Nesmith and his wife Phyllis; both men struggled in the Los Angeles music scene, until Nesmith was cast in The Monkees (1966). Nesmith then recruited London to work behind the scenes.
Along with being Nesmith's stand-in of choice on the Monkees' TV series, London also played bass guitar on some of their records (including "The Girl I Knew Somewhere", which freed Peter Tork to play harpsichord), and co-wrote material with Nesmith ("Don't Call On Me").
He had two sons, Michael Christopher and Ryan Carl with his ex-wife Vicki.
He had daughter, Katherine Lorraine with his wife Lana.
