Personal Quote:

The music industry is still musicians playing music. If it has changed in any way, it is that nobody who really cares about music is running the industry. In the '80s, accountants ended up running it, and they still are. The record industry has fallen apart. But we are on to the new age, a digital one. See more »

Trivia:

Played drums on several songs by Paul McCartney on the album "Pipes of Peace". See more »

Trademark:

Complicated, individualistic drum fills, such as phrasing just slightly after the beat See more »

Nickname:

Ritchie

Star Sign:
