Rick has performed and recorded with a variety of artists including The Animals, Buster James Band, Pat Cash Band, members of FM, Thunder and Iron Maiden, gaining a platinum award disc from EMI Records for his drumming on British Lion, the first solo album from Iron Maiden bass player Steve Harris.
Hailing from the Norfolk/Cambridgeshire border, Riko started playing bass guitar in 1980. Since then he has been in a plethora of bands, covering all musical styles, from punk to classic rock and everything else inbetween!
Riko joined the blondied crew in 2014 & has been enjoying the "best gigging years of his life since then". Quote from Riko!
He diligently continues to improve his style, technique and provides the most authentic Blondie bass sound imaginable.
Riko is also a very accomplished vocalist himself and together with Phil, they produce some wonderful backing vocals.
