IMDb has his biography and a photo album.

I can remember when in 1992 he gave up his late night post to Leno. The Leno vs. Letterman thing was huge. Would Letterman's viewer ratings be better if he had The Tonight Show's name? I think so. After all, Johnny left that post for Letterman to have.

Its amazing. I was 13 when Johnny left the air in 1992 and yet I remember so many of his skits and jokes. He had a lasting impression. He always will. It is a very sad end to an era in entertainment.
