Starting at age 10 on drums & percussion for school bands and then progressing to county big bands, brass bands & orchestras playing some fantastic venues and working with some great composers and musicians. Moving into the band thing fairly late on and joined a few groups that didn't 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 was asked to pick the bass up 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.
