I can't believe I saw it first in the local paper.  You folks should be ashamed. LOL

Here's to Rick, the keyboardist who got me into prog before I got into prog. Clap

BTW, The Atlanta Urinal Constipation should never beat Prog Archives to this sort of stuff.  Of course I didn't know it was Rick's birthday either.Embarrassed

61 already? Wow! Happy Birthday to one of the greatest keyboardists of all time, and my personal favourite!
Would've celebrated with the Six Wives... but the CD's in the car, and the car is far far away from here. :-/

Hi,
 
Happy Birthday.
 
Sadly I won't be joining you for a drink and hello, since you've stated that you don't like TfTO! I probably would be rude enough to tell you that you should have more respect and appreciation for your own work!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

You've got to be kidding!

He's the youngest in the Fragile/Close To The Edge lineup.

He can't possibly be a day over 98!
