As a very young child prodigy, Rick was classically trained as a concert Harpist and Oboeist.
Knowing that there simply HAD to be an intervention, he was abducted and sent to the Mother Ship for reprogramming, and sent back some time later with a Telecaster embedded on his body, and Country and Blues embedded in his heart.
Since then the guitar has taken him all around this great country playing everything from dive bars, to festivals to opening for National acts, seeing some wonderful places and meeting so many wonderful people.

At 11 yrs. of age I heard Tim Ayers playing in his dads garage with the "Sounds Unlimited Band"
which later became the "Mason Profit Band" (Two Hang men hanging from a tree)
His mother Florence later told me about him learning and playing the "Bass Guitar"
So I went to Govco and purchased a bass with grass cutting money.
At Woodview Junior High we had a chance to debut our first Rock Show
The lights went down and the "Electric Freedom Band" played (All Right Now)
The house was a rockin and so was Richard Wilson as his drum riser collapsed.
This is where the "Who" got there bang up ideas I'm guessing.
