The McCoys were a band from Union City, USA lead by Richard Zehringer (later known as Rick Derringer). This first line-up was known as "The Rick Z Combo", and later known as "Rick and the Raiders". One of their best-known songs is "Hang On Sloopy", which was #1 in America in the Billboard Hot 100 chart in October 1965 and is the official rock song of the state of Ohio. American sales alone were over one million copies. Other hits include a Top 10 cover of "Fever", and a Top 40 cover of Ritchie Valens's "Come On Let's Go". A cover of "Sorrow", the B-side of their version of "Fever", was a hit in the United Kingdom for The Merseys and was later covered again by David Bowie. Its opening line, "with your long, long hair and eyes of blue" was quoted by George Harrison in the fadeout of "It's All Too Much", featured on the 1969 Yellow Submarine film soundtrack album. The two Zehringer brothers (then known as Rick Derringer and Randy Z) and Hobbs became Johnny Winter's band for the albums Johnny Winter And and Live Johnny Winter And in 1970 and 1971 respectively. Derringer and Hobbs later played with Edgar Winter. Derringer also played with Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, among others, in addition to forming later bands, such as DNA. Hobbs died of drug-related heart failure on 5 August 1993, (Derringer's birthday), at the age of 45. Peterson died in Gainesville, Florida, on 21 July 1993, at the age of 47.
