Ric – Lead Guitar, Harmonies
I started with trombone, then picked up the guitar when my Mom received one as a Christmas gift. I ended up playing it more than she did! The influence of Ace Frehley made me pick up an old, used Vox electric and together with some junior high buddies we all thought we’d be the next Kiss/Bachman Turner Overdrive/Foreigner smashed up with E.L.O. (we even had a violinist). Soon, our crappy little project morphed into a house band at a local biker bar which the drummer’s dad owned. My Mom half-joked that at least this hobby kept “these 15 year-olds” off the streets.
Today, I’m still off the streets. Mom still worries!
