Rick's current activities include writing music for movies and television, recording jingles, producing records, as well as being the Musical Director for The Tracy Ullman Show. Some of his movie credits include Just the Ticket, Painted Hero, HEAT, Up in Smoke, Alive, and A Stranger Among Us. His most recent scoring for TV can be heard on Everybody Loves Raymond, Yes, Dear, and the upcoming Hank Azaria Show. On top of all that, he has somehow managed to be the drummer on a few live appearances with Carly Simon and Bette Midler.
In addition to having his signature Yamaha Hipgig, Rick says, "I have always strived to achieve the perfect sound and feel in my performances. Yamaha Drums and hardware have always been the best tools to achieve that." About this, he isn't kidding.
