The following bio is taken from his website:

John Nitzinger, a Texas legend, has been a worldwide force behind rock and roll since the ‘70’s. His song writing style is unique and diversified. He is known for his contribution to the development of the signature sound of “Texas Rock and Blues”.

Proof of his Texas legendary status, Nitzinger was one of the first four artists to be inducted into Buddy Magazine’s Texas Tornado’s Hall of Fame in 1978, “as a Texas Tornado of Guitar, one of the best musicians in Texas, perhaps in the world.”

During the ‘70’s, John wrote half of five albums with the rock band, Bloodrock. He was awarded a Gold Album from Capitol Records for “Bloodrock 2” and was soon signed to Capitol on a solo venture. Two classics were released; the self titled “Nitzinger” and “Nitzinger One Foot In History”. The hit single “Louisiana Cockfight” is considered to be a classic.

John took to touring his solo albums and shared the stage with legendary artists such as, Leon Russell, BB King, Sly & The Family Stone and Freddie King. Moving on internationally, he performed at the Mar Y Sol International Pop Festival in Puerto Rico with world renowned artists such as The Allman Brothers Band, Alice Cooper, BB King, The J. Geils Band, The Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin, Emerson Lake & Palmer, among others. John’s classic, “Jelly Roll Blues” stole the show and became an instant hit for Atlantic Records.

In 1976, John signed with 20th Century Fox and music mogul, Russ Regan to produce Nitzinger’s album, “Live Better Electrically”. This album reached the charts with two hit singles, “Are You With Me” and “Yellow Dog”.
