Maybe the most classic Ric tone of all the Brit prog players. Excellent sense of both melody and pace. He was one of my early inspirations on bass guitar, with Squire and Bruce. Nice guy, too. I struck up a conversation with him back in '76 when they played a club here in Mpls. We chatted bass for a bit and he told me they'd be back in a few months at a theatre and if I was there to swing by and he'd introduce me to the rest of the band. He was as good as his word and I met and talked with everyone but the keyboard player, who never talked to the public. And brother, was Annie Haslam (the singer) gorgeous back in the day! She could sing a little, too. He seemed to disappear off the face of the earth after Renaissance slowly fell apart in the early '80s.
