Sorry, some setting on my computer doesn't allow me to open the photos, so I can't really tell who that is without zooming in. But I can tell you it's definitely not Milli Vanilli.

My first guess would have been Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits. I went to "ask Jeeves" and did a search of Baton Rouge recording artists and Johnny Rivers did come up as a possibility. Yeah, I tried to cheat. But the guy in the picture did not even come close to the picture I had in my head. Damn sixties thing. Oh well, hit me with another one.

Cheer Up Ranger. I've heard that if you can't remeber much from the 1960's you must of really enjoyed them.

Way to Go Damm*its*gotta*hemi & Hoover! It is the "Secret Agent Man" star - Johnny Rivers! The photo is from his website!!! Other songs, Mabelline, Memphis. Midnight Special, Poor Side of Town .......

I saw him in a concert a couple of years ago and he still can rock!
