The recent Grammy winner and string multi-instrumentalist with the Afghan Whigs, the Polyphonic Spree, and the Twilight Singers is also the owner/engineer at the wonderful Marigny Studios. His early orchestral training and rock’n’roll impulses led to a decade touring with the Spree, including two Bowie tours. His post-Katrina volunteer work resulted in permanent relocation to New Orleans and the eventual establishment of the studio. Rick’s a real talent who believes in trusting the professionals he works with. Let’s hope his trust isn’t misplaced as he puts it all on the line with the Troubled Men. Topics include the Safe House, Hurricane Ida, roof damage, a tree cutter, coastal destruction, name confusion, music training, punk exposure, a first gig, older women, parents’ music, car trouble, UNT, violin to bass, loving school, an audition, a religious experience, future vision, not a cult, choir robes, 32 on a bus, a launch pad, meeting Bowie, studio training, Luthjen’s Dancehall, the Beat Exchange, board-side manner, trust, Greg Dulli, Dave Rosser, the Gutter Twins, guitar lessons, ghost stories, a legacy, a guitar collection, New Orleans musicianship, and much more.
