City Slang: Happy Birthday Mitch Ryder

Posted By on Tue, Feb 26, 2013 at 11:23 AM

We would like to wish a warm and happy 68th birthday to the one and only Mitch Ryder today.

To celebrate the occasion, have another look at our piece on the great man from last year, here.

Back then, Ryder said of his new album, “At my age, you can’t pretend to be something you’re not. I won’t make another "Devil with a Blue Dress On" just to prove I still can. The fact that I get on stage and do it proves that I can still do it. In terms of my music, I think you need to be able to talk about age-relevant things.”

Much love, Mitch.
