I just got back from seeing Yanni here in Sacramento, what a great show. Just incredible. I was concerned about Ric. Although his playing was great during the show, he seemed to stay out of the spotlight. One thing I noticed was he had a stand which held his bass while he played. He never had his bass actually strapped on. At one point I observed him sitting down during a song. Last time I saw him with Yanni he had a solo during "The Rain Must Fall", the only time he was really noticed was during the little bass solo part on "Dance with a Stranger". I was wondering if there may some health issues, I hope not. Anyway if anybody has any info I would like to know. I checked his web site, no info.
