John Nitzinger / Press

“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.”

“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.
