“When you try to control music, you strangle it. I know it’s a hippie thing. But I’m trying to get the energy out, let it go. That’s the gift I have.” Flea, RHCP
Rick joined the band in March 2018. Originally a drummer as a teen, he switched to guitars during the heyday of such bands such as U2, R.E.M., Guns & Roses, and Green Day. In the 2000s, he discovered that playing the bass gives him the best of both worlds, bridging the gap between the drums and guitars. A part of various music projects throughout his life, Rick knows a good situation when he sees one. Playing for RadioPlay is the good situation that he's been looking for. He's living the dream and looks forward to performing with Ray, Carl, and Paul this summer and beyond.
