Rick Richards, the lead guitarist for Izzy Stradlin, has answered some questions sent to him by fans;
From Edwin (Netherlands): Is Izzy still planning on releasing Like A Dog or has he moved on onto new projects?
Rick - We have a new project in the mixing stages that we cut in Miama at Criteria Studios. Thanks for the compliments. Later, Rick Richards.
From Scott (New York): Don't know or expect you to remember me but I'm from New York. Last time (as far as I know) that you played here (as the Satellites) was in Vernon, NY opening for BTO. I raised a sign that said "Play Memphis" which you did. Later on, myself and my 2 friends were invited by you and Rick Price to party which we definitley did, backstage. We talked about Izzy and a whole buncha crap. I think I mentioned to you that if you ever cut a solo album you should cover Woodys' "We All Get Old". Just wondering if ya remember that and when the hell are you coming to upstate New York again, as Satellites, Hell Hounds or whatever!
Rick: Scott I remember you from New York... Hope to be up there again soon. There's no solo project in the works, yet... but I have new material with Izzy in the mixing stages... Should be released one of these days~Cheers, Rick Richards
From Andrew (UK): I just wanted to show my support and hope you will come back to the UK for a few gigs soon?
Rick: Andy, Hey, would love to come back to the UK...maybe in the next couple years! Thanks man! Rick Richards.
From Will: A few years ago I read that you, Jimmy Ashhurst and Charlie Quintana were going to tour as the Ju Ju Hounds again. Did anything ever come of this?
Rick: Will, Jimmys playing with Buck Cherry and Chalo with Social Distortion... would love to see the old Ju Ju Hounds together... but don't think it'll happen...
Do you still tour? Where can I find the information?
Who are your musical influences?
Rick - Beatles, Stones, Faces, Dylan, Cream, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, George Jones...
