Email From Richard


Recommended Posts

Hi Brian,

thanks for taking the time to write. Sorry it's taken me so long to

write back. I use Rotosound strings. I used to use D'Addario, but

recently switched. They are sort of tough to find, but worth it. they

are really popular in England, but still not big over here. As for

session work for pop groups, it's pretty fun to just go in to a studio

and hear a song and play over it. I love music. I play on as many

different types of things that I possibly can. It's what i've done my

whole life and feel so blessed that I'm able to actually make a living

at it. There are huge differences between playing with Gn'R and ANYONE

else. Seriously, it's like my dream band. The Replacements were one of

my all time favorite bands, Robin blew my mind the first time i saw him

with NIN and Brain is probably THE baddest drummer there is. Axl is

unlike any other singer i've ever worked with. Absolute genius. It's

such an honor to stand next to him onstage (it can also be quite

frightening). He's heavier than just about anyone that's been.

Haha, everybody sends richard emails with non-gnr related questions like "what strings do you use?", "what's your favourite song", "What pick color do you like".

To me, it all seems like a cover-up for the important questions. (What I would also do) :)

when i was thinking up questions i wanted it to be more about richard then CD or Axl as he gets those emails constantly. im suprised he volunteered the little blurb about everyone. i thought it was funny he didn't mention dizzy. doesn't shock me he didn't mention the pitman guy, i dont think he ever has.
