Richard garnered early fame as drummer for 60s New Jersey garage band The Doughboys and has put out 11 albums, largely as a one-man band, since 1988.
In this episode from late 2017, we discuss the title track (and near the end play “And Then”) from Incognito (2017) and Cornerstone (1998) and “Agnostic’s Prayer” from Tiers and Other Stories (2011). End song (new for this reissue): “Washington Rock” from 67,000 Miles an Album (2022). Intro: “Falling Away” from Hey Man! (1990). Learn more at richardxheyman.com.
Here’s the video we discuss for “Incognito,” and here’s one for “Falling Away” from his brief major label career. Another early hit was “Call Out the Military.” Here’s the video for “Cornerstone.” Richard brings up his song “Civil War Buff” in our interview.
If you’re not sure why we keep bringing up Gene Clark, maybe listen to his best album.
