John McKay was the first studio guitarrist of Siouxsie and the Banshees.[1]

He was member of the band from July 1977 until September 1979. He played on the albums The Scream and Join Hands. McKay composed the tune of their first hit single, "Hong Kong Garden" as well as much of the material found on the bands first two LPs.

McKay left the band after the release of the second album Join Hands. He briefly led a trio named Zor Gabor which released one EP, "Tightrope" (1987 cat: ITTI042). It was awarded record of the week in the NME. McKay currently lives in North West London.
