Home Music Johnny Rivers is Still Not in the Rock and Roll Hall of...

This is just a Sunday rant. Johnny Rivers, I was going to post some of his videos anyway. I just love him, and always have. He had so many hits, was so important to Louisiana music, rockabilly, rock and roll. And if you catch him now, he’s better than ever. Plus, he’s very much alive! He’s 77. But he’s not going to live forever. Meanwhile, look at these sad choices for induction into the RRHOF: Notorious BIG? Judas Priest? Before Johnny Rivers? Please. And Johnny was sort of the American brother from a different mother to my other favorite person, Dave Edmunds (also ignored with Nick Lowe by the RRHOF). Listen to Johnny’s guitar. Oh my god, it’s beautiful. Yes, it’s Sunday and there’s no baseball. Viva Johnny Rivers!
