"Rick Derringer""It's a toss-up here. The McCoys had a huge hit in 1965 with "Hang On Sloopy," which is now the official Ohio state rock song. After this, he found success with Johnny and Edgar Winter, and with his solo hit "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo." He is also noted for being "Weird Al" Yankovic's producer in the 80's." - Martha Hankins

Story about this misheard lyric by: Carly B. Steffen

I have read stories that say people thought this song was about Snoopy the Beagle from the Peanuts gang, but I thought this was about a human nicknamed Snoopy and wondered who that could have been.

Comments:
A number 1 song in November 1965, "Hang On Sloopy" was the most successful song for the American quartet the McCoys. The McCoys were formed in 1962 in Gary, IN by guitarist Ricky Zehringer (later known as Rick Derringer) and his brother, drummer, Randy (later known as Randy Z). Derringer would later go on to have a semi-successful solo career with the song, "Rock & Roll Hootchie Coo" being a huge rock 'n' roll anthem from the 1970's and produce such acts in the 1980's as the Go-Go's.
