With the passing of Rick Lee this week, I have lost a great friend, and our world has lost a great singer, player, and advocate for the power and beauty of music in life. His musical genius informed and influenced me since we first met in the 1960’s. We were buddies, jammers, hikers, carousers, band mates, and collaborators on so many musical projects. I produced three albums of his amazing music for Swift River Music and Waterbug Records, and he contributed his keyboard skills to five of my Swift River Music albums and one currently in production. There is a big hole in my life that the passing of “Uncle Rick” has left behind.
Rest in peace, Rick.
