Johnny Rivers (born John Henry Ramistella; November 7, 1942) is an American rock ‘n’ roll singer, songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. His repertoire includes pop, folk, blues, and old-time rock ‘n’ roll. Rivers charted during the 1960s and 1970s but remains best known for a string of hit singles between 1964 and 1968, among them “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), and “Summer Rain”.

On June 12, 2009, Johnny Rivers was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. His name has been suggested many times for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but he has never been selected. Rivers, however, was a nominee for 2015 induction into America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame.

On April 9, 2017, Rivers performed a song, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, at the funeral for Chuck Berry, at The Pageant, in St. Louis, Missouri. One of Rivers’ biggest and earliest hits was his cover of Berry’s “Memphis, Tennessee”.

JohnnyRiversJohnny Rivers (born John Henry Ramistella, November 7, 1942, New York City) is an American rock ‘n’ roll singer, songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. His repertoire includes pop, folk, blues and old-time rock ‘n’ roll, including several cover versions. Rivers charted during the 1960s and 70s but remains best known for a string of hit singles between 1964 and 1968, among them “Memphis”, “Mountain of Love“, “The Seventh Son”, “Secret Agent Man”, “Poor Side of Town” (a US #1), “Baby I Need Your Lovin’” (a Motown cover) and “Summer Rain”. However he has continued to record and perform to date.

Rivers is one of a small number of performers, such as Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Pink Floyd (from 1975’s Wish You Were Here onward), Queen, Genesis (though under the members’ individual names and/or the pseudonym Gelring Limited) and Neil Diamond, who have their name as the copyright owner on their recordings. (Most records have the recording company as the named owner of the recording.) This development was spearheaded by the Bee Gees with their $200 million lawsuit against RSO, the largest successful lawsuit against a record company by an artist or group.

On June 12, 2009, Johnny Rivers was inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.  (Source: Wikipedia)
