An icon of the 1960s alongside Eddy Mitchell and Johnny Hallyday, Dick Rivers became known first in the group Wild Cats and then solo with the single Baby John which has sold 200,000 copies. With his black hair gominée, his eternal jeans and his attitude of crooner, he becomes one of the representatives of rock'n'Roll on the French scene. Fascinated by American culture, his nickname Dick Rivers comes from the name of a character played by Elvis Presley in the movie Loving you .
