Damm! He looks fit and young for 65..

Looks like he got a couple of Tony Cochran Steampunk guitars

I dig Rick, and he does look good, but those pix are definitely airbrushed just a tad.

Love those steampunk axes!!!

I saw him play an AMD bash back in the 80's and I enjoyed the show much more than I thought I would

I've seen way worse.

He was a really big deal around 1982, I always liked him and
especially the song "I've Done Everything For You".

I saw him play a fair a few years ago- he used a cheap Fernandes
strat.

I've seen him play a few times at local festivals. It's always an entertaining show. During one show he did a version of Red House near the end and was awesome. He was actually playing and jamming. Mostly, however, his guitar is for show during the concert. The other guitarist does all the lead and a good chunk of the rhythm.

I've always liked his arrangement of Eleanor Rigby when he was with Zoot.

Zoom that original picture out. The guitar is in far better focus than his face.


To be honest, I haven't heard a RS song that I didn't like. That song he did with the Foo Fighters is killer.

He's ageless, he and Jackson Browne... like freakin' Dick Clark!

Yeah, he actually fit the word moot in a song...
Like trying to find a word that rhymes with orange...

Awesome Pop Rocker to be sure amongst his many talents...

Major props to Neil Giraldo for those killer, scapel like, succinct solos in WCD...
Ala Eliot Easton.

Definitely underrated. I equate him to a Bryan Adams type singer/songwriter, but with better guitar chops.

Big fan...that tune he did with the Foo Fighters is epic and Tim Pierce's playing on Living In Oz is incindiery.
