Wow mmm Thanks!


"I've never met Rishard, but I've been listening to his vast body of work for well over 20 years. Even his early work is head and shoulders above the combined work of all but a small handful of other guitarists I've ever heard. In other words, he's a guitarist's guitarist, and he's as experienced and talented as they come." 

- R Lewis (musician)
