A lot of people know all about music . . . that's the easy, fun part. To play an instrument takes commitment. It ain't easy. To play in a band, write your own tunes - that's another level. More commitment. An electric guitar in one hand - and an acetylene torch in the other hand - More commitment. Ricky has talents that many of us don't have, or haven't committed ourselves like he has. I look at all these builders as each of them having something special that is their "expertise." It's hard to do it all - some more than others. While everyone was still sleeping, I'm gazing around in Ricky's shop. Man, his band (The Big Iron) has played with some righteous bands - on the same stage. That's cool as fuck. History you can't take back. It's cool I got to meet this guy that few know about . . . credit where credit is due I guess? . . . and we're pretty cool friends now. Rock On !
