John Charles LeCompt (born March 10, 1973 in Little Rock, Arkansas as John Charles LeCompt) was co-guitarist in Evanescence from 2002 to 2007 when, after signing with Wind-up Records, Amy, Ben and David turned to some old friends (John, Rocky and Will included) from Little Rock to help with the writing process for Fallen and the live tour production. John's aid with Evanescence traces back to 2000, where he is mentioned in the booklet for Origin, credited/thanked as "the sexiest man alive" by Amy and Ben. Fans also agree, noting that John is "the hottest member of Evanescence — past or present — that isn't Amy."
John is credited for co-writing Forever You, Taking Over Me, and All That I'm Living For. He performed Paul McCoy’s part in Bring Me to Life during live shows. John also has programming credits on Call Me When You're Sober and All That I'm Living For.
His departure with Evanescence was on May 4, 2007 when Amy Lee unexpectedly fired him for uknown reasons. He was then replaced by Troy McLawhorn.
His immediate family includes wife Shelly, daughter Bethanie, and a new son named John Charles LeCompt II (J.C.). He also has a brother, Jimmy LeCompt, whom he collaborated with in a project called Burnt Offerings. The song they are known for doing together is called Free But Hollow. Jimmy has been known to make appearances on the message boards in the past.
