Some of Richard’s early guitar influences were George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page. In the early 70’s Richard worked in various clubs and dances in the Montreal Area developing his style. In 1975 he moved west and got caught up in booming Country and Western scene in Alberta. Road work, session work, T.V work followed further honing Richard’s skill’s. In 1981 the Guitarist moved to Los Angeles to study at G.I.T (Guitar Institute). Some of Richard”s teacher’s included Howard Roberts, Tommy Tedesco, and Jay Graydon!! Heavy duty for sure! Those years in L.A drew Richard closer to a jazz, Blues based style.
