b John Henry Ramistella, 7 Nov,42, NYC hits '64- 68, Memphis, Mountain of Love, Seventh Son, Secret Agent Man, Poor Side of Town ( #1),Baby I Need Your Lovin' and Summer Rain. In Nashville worked as singer songwriter. Break in '64 got contract Whisky aGoGo, Friend of Elvis, made his shit list for recording Memphis.
Johnny Rivers - Poor Side Of Town (Original Stereo). My favorite Johnny Rivers song. The line that gets me is "to me you were the greatest thing this boy had ever found, and girl, it's hard to find nice things on the poor side of town."
"If I have some celebrity, I hope I can use it to make a difference. The true social reward is that I can speak my mind and share my thoughts about the enviroment and civilization itself. There's so much shit happening with people who are exploiting their positions and creating a lot of negativity."
