Ricky is a great guitar player and was with The Blackhearts for a long time. I’m sorry that I never got to see him play live. I’ll update this post later tonight with more information about Ricky and his genius. 🙂

I’ll add his Facebook to the official links section later. Since we have a lot of links, I’m going to put them all on their own page soon to free up some space in the sidebar. I’ve got other goodies I want to add there. 🙂

In the meantime, here’s some classic Ricky Byrd. Enjoy!

“Back it Up” is from Up Your Alley.
