After 5 years of of being a child actor came to a close, Bobby Richards wanted more than ending up on the cutting room floor of such shows as Diffrent Strokes, Silver Spoons and The Greatest American Hero. He started his first band at 13 and never looked back. By the time he was 19 he had written songs for a variety of artists including Bobby Bare, Johnny Cash and Ringo Starr. Unfortunately none of them recorded the songs or even returned the emails. He has put out recordings with many bands including The Shotgunn Symphony, Penis Envy and Richards and Fitch. Currently he has put together Bobby Richards Inc. which is a collection of revolving friends and musicians from all over the globe.
