About this Event

This is your chance to hear some of the interesting and humorous stories from Rick’s career and his life, and see film clips and records from his private collection.

After performing his first paying gig in 1963, he has been passionately involved with music including TV and radio work, writing and voicing hundreds of commercials, and owning a record/music shop. Rick’s new autobiography, Hey Rock’n’Roll, shares his passion and extensive knowledge of the music industry over various musical eras, including the Newcastle music scene in the ‘way-out and groovy’ 1960’s.
