Rickey was born just north of San Francisco, CA. He purchased his first drum set off the top shelf of a pawn shop in Texas for $500 after graduating high school. Having a passion for music and desire to play drums, he saw past the cardboard resemblance of cymbals, monkey wrench and duct tape that held his new found set together and began playing every chance he had. Rickey soon started playing in his home church and grew from there.
Having travelled around Texas and the Northwest with worship bands and then moving back home to California, Rickey has never looked back from that day in the pawn shop. Rickey continues to play at his home church in Sacramento, CA and with the Bradley Clark Band.
