In case anyone missed it on FB, Rik Boyd (aka ~ "Rik Rathchild" here on the forum) passed away this morning (apparently of a heart attack). He may not have been the chattiest member of the board, but he was here for a long time and was well-liked by everyone. I have always been happy to consider him a friend here at 80s.

My condolences to his family and friends. :B

Yep. It's tough to say goodbye to our friends, whether it be forum friends like Rik or legendary rockers like Lemmy, David Bowie and Glenn Frey.

The Man Upstairs knows that even the greatest band ever assembled has to have an audience to play for...

I'm sure that Rik is having a cold one and enjoying the show as we speak... :beerbang:
