Johnny Rivers (Mod Rock/Blues)

(Hopefully the links work....)

I just saw this man at the Alameda County Fair....DAMN
He's a MUCH better blues singer than you would think...people were actually complaining that he was "not as good as he used to be" because he has gotten a very very slight grain to his voice now...(a maturity...in my opinion) that makes his voice much better for blues. The onlt reservation that I had was that when he did "Midnight Special" he sang (verses in a different order) the same weird lyric that CCR did. ( I like CCR's version, but "..and the chlothes she wore.." an Apron IS chlothes...that is why the lyric ran "..and the DRESS she wore..." in the first place. But whatever....it was a GREAT show...
P.S.
The man is aging like Dick Clark....it's weird/
Some clips...(couldn't find any of the show....)








And for all doubters....
