Rich has always been involved in music & singing. Starting out in Drums & percussion from age 10. He was always in School Bands and then progressing to county big bands, brass bands & orchestras. He's played some fantastic venues and worked with some great composers and musicians.He moved into the band thing fairly late on and joined a few groups that didn't really get off the ground including an original band called 'Hooper'. After a slight break Rich picked up the sticks for a Pink Floyd tribute act and then in mid 2000's was asked to pick up bass guitar for the first time for a local covers band. After quickly picking up the 30 or so songs needed to get through the first gig, it was set in stone.. bass & vocals. Rich even picked up a guitar a few years later to take on the role of Billie Joe Armstrong in a Green Day tribute after such great feedback from the covers band Green Day tracks.Moving on from that Rich left the bass as a main instrument to pick up more of the vocal role and it's been that way ever since.
