A very big THANK YOU To Pat McManus who invited me to do a couple of songs with him and his band at The Key Theatre Peterborough on Wed. 11th April 2012. This was a special night for me as it was the first time I’ve sung with him since parting company with Mama’s Boys so long ago. Not only did I join Pat on stage, but also old friend Mark Stanway from Magnum. Check out Pat and Mark's websites!
"A very big THANK YOU to the guys from Rage Of Angels and an incredible audience for such a warm reception on Saturday 25th Oct. 2014
At Rock City, Nottingham UK.
It was my first meeting of the band at the sound check, so with very short notice, and no rehearsals, everything was on a 'wing and a prayer!'
I had a blast, and thanks again!"
In April 2015, Rick joined JOHN COGHLAN'S QUO as bass player/vocalist. Please visit www.johncoghlan.com for further information
