JOHNNY RIVERS: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Di New York (1942) trasferitosi in Louisiana sin da piccolo, alla metà degli anni ’50 inizia a suonare la chitarra e partecipare in occasioni di feste in piccole orchestrine della zona. Il suo vero nom è John Ramistella, alla fine del decennio cambierà in Rivers su consiglio di Alan Freed. I primi successi arrivano nei primi anni sessanta, raggiungendo i primi posti delle classifiche. Si dedica anche come produttore e organizza i concerti dal vivo.
