    Johnny Rivers deserves props. But the writer,and headline editor of a
    music publication should know enough about music to know Go-go is a
    musical genre that Rivers doesn’t play.

      Nowhere in the story do I write that Rivers plays go-go, the hybrid funk-style from Washington, D.C., performed by, for instance, the late Chuck Brown. The writer of the headline, I’m pretty sure, and that could be various people down the editorial line, is making a play on the Whiskey a Go Go club, which Rivers is strongly identified with. Chuck Brown played in New Orleans concurrent with Jazz Fest one year and it was my honor to interview him before one of that performance..

        The headline writer then. My apologies to you if you didn’t use the line and do know what Gogo is.
