RIP Rich,

 

Sad that both MGB bassist are no longer with us anymore 😞   Really loved Rich's style and live presence. Prayers for his friends and family.

Devastated to hear this news.

I was too young to see MGB live as I was under the age of 19, but had the chance to see Rich play on the Avalanche tour... man enjoyed seeing him live on the intro to Near Fantastica. Gonna miss him. RIP Rich.

Damn... I still think of him as the new guy.

This one hurts. Beautiful Midnight and Audio of Being are 2 of my favourite and probably the two most important records of my life. They're a huge part of why I wanted to play music and Rich is a big reason about why I wanted to play bass. My life would be so much different without his influence in it.

Damn. Haven’t heard much more of Rich after he left Matt but always enjoyed what I seen in MGB. The familiarity he provided the first couple years in solo Matt material was very cool too. RIP

This is terrible news.  RIP Rich.

It's been a rough ride for so many rock musicians who came up in the 90's from the west coast of North America.  I don't understand it.

What a year. 

While I never had the pleasure of meeting him, as someone who grew up on MGB what I found interesting about Rich from all the interviews I watched was how he was always the guy showing so much humor. Whether it was dry or straight up, he seemed like he was always trying (and succeeding) in making people laugh. One of my favorite interview he ever gave was a satire one that him and Matt did with Chris Nelson after the release of Loser Anthems. How he was able to keep a straight face during this is beyond me:
 


That's not to mention his talent. Whether it was that dream like bass work he did on Giant, the dark and busy framing for Under the Influence, the appropriately intense climbing and descending notation he came up with for The Rat Who Would Be King, or all of the intricate work he did on White Light Rock and Roll Review, I always really appreciated what he would create/contribute. He'll definitely be missed. Hope him and Geoff are having a cold one somewhere up above.

Also, I thought Dave made a really nice write up for him.

I listened to Audio of Being yesterday while doing yardwork and thought alot of the MGB days.  Such an awesome album.  I feel so fortunate to meet all four members including Rich after seeing MGB for the first time in early 2001.  RIP in Rich.

I'm going to drop some live shows in the download section throughout the week. Trying to get shows Rich was a part of. Some may have them, some may not. Will likely start this tonight.
