"Nitz was held in such high
regard for his guitar playing that
BUDDY Magazine included John
in our first list of the hottest
guitarists in Texas, the BUDDY
Texas Tornados, back in 1978.
Yes, John Nitzinger can play
the electric guitar like nobody’s
business, but he can really play
the blues, a talent that has somehow
kept him relevant and a
crowd pleaser over the last 50
years. (Yes, you read that correctly.)
What makes his story so remarkable
is not just the success
and crashes, but the personal
health issues that erupted in the
last ten years....I don’t say this as some kind
of Zig Ziglar apostle, but a true
music fan that remains impressed
with how well Nitzinger is playing
and how he takes something
old (blues rock) but is able to
make it new." Kirby E. Warnock, Buddy Magazine
"Did you know that
AC/DC had a lead singer before Bon Scott? Neither did I. Evidently, the guy’s
name is Dave Evans, and not only is he still kicking (and rocking), he recently
performed the vocals in the studio on a couple of songs by blues-rocking Fort Worth
ax-man John Nitzinger. Pretty cool. (Reminds me of how a couple of years ago the
dude who sang The Nuge’s “Stranglehold,” Derek St. Holmes, sang
on a couple of tracks by Fort Worth’s Blood of the Sun.) Nitz is still kicking
and rocking too. He recently released a DVD of a performance he had done on live
television in Munich a while back, he played the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg,
and he was on the Bo & Jim morning show on Lone Star 92.5. Good for Johnny.
