Johnny Rivers has 77 candles on his birthday cake today. It wasn't until Johnny moved to LA and got a gig playing at The Whisky A-GO-GO that his career really took of. He recorded many of his songs live at first and then moved into a more produced studio sound. But he did give us some great music. Johnny has had hits with songs like "Memphis" (a Chuck Berry cover), "Mountain of Love", "The Seventh Son", "Secret Agent Man", "Poor Side of Town" (a US #1), "Baby I Need Your Lovin'" (a Motown cover), "Summer Rain" and more.
Is there any one of his songs that has a special meaning for you?
Happy Birthday Johnny!! "…secret aa-gent man…"
