Born in Sheffield sometime in the last century Rick is veteran of many bands. Bands like the SILENT BLUE with MARKUS HOLLER and future members of his band GREEN TAMBOURINES. The 'Tambourines gigged a lot around London but never made it onto vinyl. That break came in 1992 when Rick was signed to Chrysalis Records and his new band, ORANGE, released the Judy Over The Rainbow EP, a Beatles tinged classic that should have been massive. After torteous recording sessions at Rockfield with Gus Dudgeon the band went so far over budget that the record label dropped them.
