Richard Bishop was born in Saginaw, Michigan in 1960. He is best known for his 26 year involvement with the band Sun City Girls (1981-2007) and as an experimental solo guitarist whose work often reflects the shadow worlds of India, the Middle East, North Africa, and other points along the Gypsy trail.

Bishop technically began playing the guitar when he was 11, after his parents bought him a cheap Buck Owens styled red, white and blue guitar. He took guitar lessons for about three weeks but it didn’t ‘take’. When he was 15 he began again and proceeded to teach himself how to play the instrument. By age 18 he and his brother Alan were performing together while in college, mainly in coffee houses, seedy bars and at parties.

Both Bishops left Michigan in 1979 and settled in Phoenix, AZ, continuing to perform together, mainly among the city’s open mic circuit. In 1981 the brothers joined up with drummer Charles Gocher and formed the long-running underground group Sun City Girls, who during their 26 years produced an extensive discography of over 50 full length albums, 20 one-hour cassettes and a dozen 7” records. Also in the early 1980s Richard was a member of the group Paris 1942 which included Alan Bishop, J. Akkari (Jesse Srogoncik) and former Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker.
