I knew Rick for many years from the time he was a teen age banjo picker...and into the time he developed into a professional as a young man. I picked with him in several bands and innumerable jam sessions during that time.. He was always serious about his music and over the years...he has continued that development. I'm proud of his accomplishments and I'm also proud to have been a part of his early years in music.    Bobby Wolfe...Luthier (resonator guitars)
