About this Event

Robert Gordon

Facebook - Website

Robert Gordon (1947), or simply “R.G.” as his friends call him, grew up in Bethesda, M.D., a suburb of Washington D.C. Unlike many of his heroes, he had a relatively comfortable childhood: “My dad had a good job working for the government, so we never had to worry about money and things like that." ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ was the wake-up call for a new generation, and Gordon was no exception. Even though he was only nine years old in ’56, he still clearly remembers the impact of hearing it for the first time, and adds that it is this song that made him want to pursue a musical career. Some of his other early influences include Jack Scott and Gene Vincent. As Gordon told "Rolling Stone" in their October 20th, 1977 issue, "Presley, Jack Scott, Gene Vincent… their songs really do something to me. I just can’t explain it."

The music scene changed drastically in the sixties, but much of it left him completely cold (“I didn’t care for the British Invasion," he says). It was easier for him to identify with great soul singers like Otis Redding and James Brown, and he still fondly remembers seeing many great soul acts in "package" shows at the Howard Theatre in Washington D.C.
