Rick Derringer Joins the Love Love Kids
Rock & Roll legend, Rick Derringer, plays guitar on the Love Love Kids' newest single: Hang On Sloopy. The superstar guitarist/producer made the song a #1 hit in 1965, with his band, "The McCoys." The little singers sent their demo to the grammy-winning Derringer, and asked the busy artist to play guitar on their cover version. The band had "high hopes" to say the least!
But when Derringer and his wife, Jenda, heard the Love Love Kids songs and powerful "Anti-Bullying" message, they gladly jumped "on board." Rick called the grade-school singing group's version a "great performance," and when he finished his summer tour, the musician helped the kids finish their song: Hang On Sloopy.
Derringer's guitar solo is one of his finest... he is as good as he ever was on the instrument he helped revolutionize in 60's and 70's. In fact, Derringer calls his new band, The New McCoys, his "favorite band ever." In addition to his solo hits like "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo," he has played guitar and produced for Edgar and Johnny Winter, Steely Dan, Todd Rundgren, Alice Cooper, Ringo Starr, "Weird Al" Yankovic, and many others.
The Love Love Kids are honored to have Rick Derringer play guitar on their new song: Hang On Sloopy. His solo is awesome!
