> Legendary Rudy Richard is well known for playing with Slim Harpo and his guitar licks appear on all of the Slim Harpo recordings, including "Rainin' in My Heart," "The Best of Slim Harpo," "Slim Harpo Knew the Blues," and "Blues Hangover." The success of those recordings and Harpo's reputation took the band on the road (and today, Harpo's songs have been covered by the Rolling Stones, the Kinks and others).
> 
> After Slim Harpo passed in 1970 he joined Rafael Neal's band. He later joined Major Handy's Zydeco-Blues Band. Over the years he has played with the best in blues including Buddy Guy, Larry Garner & Kenny Neal just to name a few. Rudy Richard also has been playing with his own band, Rudy Richard and the Zydeco Express.
