Starting with his role in the McCoys, Rick was just 17 in 1965 when he had his first number one hit Hang on Sloopy. It knocked the Beatles song Yesterday out of the top spot. Through his relationship with heavyweights such as Jimi Hendrix, KISS, Alice Cooper, Edgar Winter, Rick continued to develop his writing and performing style. As an awards winning producer, Rick has also worked with well known artists Steely Dan, Joe Walsh of Eagles fame, Barbra Streisand, and Cyndi Lauper, Weird Al Yankovic and a score of others over the years.

Written by Rick Derringer, I Am A Real American is WWE Superstar Hulk Hogan’s theme song. Many of Rick’s rock and roll classic hit songs, Hang on Sloopy, Rock-n-Roll Hoochie Koo, Still Alive and Well and Free Ride, are still staples on world-wide radio stations played every day.
