Rick Derringer is an American singer, guitarist, Grammy award winning producer, and entertainer. He is best known as a member of the McCoys, a popular 1960s rock and roll group. He talks about his connection with wrestling, Weird Al Yankovic, and songs he wrote for movies. Did he enjoy his time with the McCoys? Rick will answer that and tell us how the McCoys got their first and biggest hit “Hang On Sloopy.” By the way, the original title was “My Girl Sloopy.”
