Rick grew up outside of Baltimore playing drums and singing professionally since the age of 14. Rick was inspired by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and most notably by a very young Rod Stewart when Rod was with Jeff Beck. “I’d listen to Rod sing “Let Me Love You” with my ear jammed right against one of the speakers so I wouldn’t disturb my mom and sisters”.
After attending The Berklee College of Music in Boston, Rick never looked back. He hit the “Rock ‘n Roll” highway singing and playing drums throughout America. He has shared the stage with countless top national acts while always refining that raspy Rod Stewart vocal style. Rick naturally credits his vocal style to Rod, as well as a fondness for Paul Rodgers of Bad Company, and his all time favorite performer, Jackie Wilson. “Jackie was THE performer before James Brown and Michael Jackson and could also sing every single note! I would like to think I have a hint of Jackie Wilson in my stage persona.” But it’s Rick’s uncanny interpretation of Rod Stewart that has mesmerized and fooled so many in his audiences even to the extreme of audience members shooting entire rolls of film before they learn it’s not the “real” Rod Stewart!
While Rick’s vocal style is definitely convincing, it’s his physical resemblance to Rod that seals the deal. In airports and restaurants, Rick is always being asked for autographs and pictures. Even Arturo Sandoval, renowned trumpet player featured on Rod’s Classic CDs and DVDs, was taken aback when he ran into Rick outside a casino show. Mr. Sandoval’s comment was … “Wow, you DO look like Rod“!
