LA rockers, My Ruin have released a video of them covering KISS collaborator, Rick Derringer’s ‘Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo’ in Leeds Rios and Newport TJ’s in 2008 whilst on their ReligiosiTour of the UK.
Legendary frontwoman, Tairrie B explains how her husband, My Ruin guitarist Mick Murphy’s fanhood fo Derringer inspired the band’s decision to cover the song:
“We actually went to see the reunion tour featuring the original line up of Derringer last year when they played LA. It was killer and although [obviously] what I do is very different vocally on stage, we thought it would be a good time to cover one of our favorite tunes and kinda change up a few words here and there for fun during the last tour.
“Not a lot of people seemed to know about Rick Derringer in the UK, so everynight I would say a little something about him before we played it and suddenly kids who were coming to more than one show were singing along with me and asking about him after the set.”
