This website is dedicated to all the fans of my Big Beat and rock
and roll band, The Richards
, which I started with my friends back
in the 1962nd in Kraków, Poland.
You may ask, why did we name the band The Richards
? As it turned
out, purely by coincidence, most of the musicians' first names in
the group were Richard
(Ryszard), hence the band's
name - Ryszardy (The Richards)
. Of course, we weren't the
only band in town. Far from it, there were other great Big Beat
bands too, and together we lived through an unforgettable
era that still lives on in the photographs shown on this
website as well as our collective memories.
Some of these
groups spawned professional musicians who eventually went
on to having successful careers doing what they do
best - play music. Many others though left the country for
lands far away from Kraków, and hopefully this site will make
it easier for them to reminisce about The Richards
it was like to be in Kraków in the 1960s.
