Mark Rivera On “All Mixed Up” 3-12-23
Mark Rivera calls himself a “sideman.”
In fact, that’s the name of his new book, Sideman – In Pursuit of the Next Gig.
A better term for Mark might be “jack of all trades.” Though perhaps best known for his saxophone playing, he also plays guitar, flute, keyboards, and he sings.
Working over the years both in the studio and on the road with artists such as Billy Joel, Foreigner, Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel, Ringo Starr and more, he has been a part of the soundtrack of our lives for more than 40 years.
Mark and Jim Monaghan first met during the Foreigner 4 tour and he connected with Jim to talk about some of the amazing stories in the new book.
