Ribler explains, “Like so many of us, I grew up with the Dick Cavett show. In retrospect it is eminently clear that Dick was one of the most important presenters of the rock ‘n’ roll renaissance, not to mention introducing all the key players in every awe-inspiring and earth-shaking event happening in our culture in the 60s, 70s and beyond.

“I had a dream that one fine day I wrote a song called “Dick Cavett”, In some 5th dimension magical, mystical reality, Dick heard the song, loved it and asked if I’d like to come to his house to make a music video. Either I’m in a 60s time warp tripping my ass off, or this dream has come true. Many thanks to Dick and his lovely wife Martha – who also appears in the video.”

The “Dick Cavett” video was directed by longtime Cavett collaborator Robert Bader and produced by SiriusXM Underground Garage personality Rich Russo and Bader.

Ribler and his star-studded entourage — which includes Sopranos actors Maureen Van Zandt (“Gabriella Dante”) and Vincent Pastore (“Big Pussy”) — pay a visit to Cavett’s Connecticut residence, proving the old adage that the show must go on…

Featuring vintage clips of iconic guests like Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Janis Joplin, and many more from The Dick Cavett Show, Ribler’s “Dick Cavett” music video is a nostalgic, affectionate, and irreverent homage to the namesake of the song.

March 4, 2024 will mark 56 years since the culture-defining Dick Cavett Show premiered on ABC. The Emmy award-winning program featured interviews with major figures in pop culture, rock and roll, jazz, politics, art, literature, sports and beyond.

Dick Cavett’s influence extends beyond the boundaries of his show. His numerous film and television appearances include iconic works like Forrest Gump, Annie Hall, Cheers, The Simpsons, The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live. Cavett has also appeared on Broadway in The Rocky Horror Show and Into the Woods. His influence lives on through the work of television icons like David LettermanJimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert – all of whom have welcomed Cavett to their own shows.

Co-written and co-produced by Ribler and Stevie Van Zandt, “Dick Cavett” is the latest single off ‘Armageddon’, the new album from Marc Ribler’s Story Road.

“Marc Ribler Offers Post-Pandemic Hope on New LP”- Ultimate Classic Rock

“Marc Ribler and the band deliver the verdict on contemporary society in deadpan electric rock ‘n roll. Head nods and Beatles-esque folk harmonies add to the wry, enjoyable effect.”- Americana Highways

“When Marc isn’t putting together amazing bands for me, he’s writing great songs and has been doing it for years. His new album for Wicked Cool plays like a greatest hits collection. He can do it all.”- Steven Van Zandt

“The Whole World Awaits You represents the culmination of a fifteen-year span of songwriting that covers a period while Ribler was actively touring and working as a Musical Director for several artists. One thing definitely shines through all the songs and that is Ribler’s desire to talk about the highs and lows of human experience without taking himself too seriously.”- Glide Magazine

“Guitarist Marc Ribler, musical director for Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, steps into the spotlight with the release of “Shattered,” a driving East Coast heartbreak rocker oozing West Coast Laurel Canyon style.”- American Songwriter
