Rock legend Johnny Rivers, born John Ramistella, took his cue from the mighty Mississippi River. As a ninth grader at Baton Rouge High School, on a holiday he staked out the radio station in New York City where popular disc jockey Alan Freed worked. He approached Freed, was offered a chance to audition, and as luck would have it, wound up recording a few singles for Freed's label. It was Freed's suggestion that based upon the young artist's hometown, near the Mississippi River in Louisiana, that he change his last name to Rivers to make it more musical.

Rivers was musical, all right. Rivers has sold more than 30 million records, achieving 17 gold records and 29 chart hits. Some of his greatest hits include "Memphis," "Secret Agent Man," "Poor Side of Town," "Summer Rain," "Slow Dancin' (Swayin' to the Music)," "Baby I Need Your Lovin'," "Mountain of Love," "The Tracks of My Tears," "Rockin' Pneumonia-Boogie Woogie Flu," "Seventh Son," "Midnight Special," "Maybelline" and many more.
