Inscription. One of the biggest pop stars of the '60s, Johnny Rivers reeled off a lengthy series of rock favorites such as "Poor Side of Town," "Secret Agent Man," and "Maybelline." While still a student of Baton Rouge High School, he formed the band Johnny and the Spades and toured regionally. Having been shaped by the sound of the American South, Johnny Rivers brought his soulful guitar leads and reedy vocals to his 30 hits that spanned from 1964 to '77.
