Rock 'n Roller/guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer Johnny Rivers turns 72 today. He was born 11-7 in 1942. So many songs are his in the 50s-70s top musical hits, Memphis, Mountain of Love, The Seventh Son, Secret Agent Man, Poor Side of Town, Baby I Need Your Lovin and numerous others. He was 'the' hot ticket 'house artist' when the famed Wisky A Go-Go opened in 1964 on the Sunset Strip.
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."
