- It was a real treat to see my first Riptide show as an audience
member. I saw them on the show, then on the glow, and then at the
Selano's house that night.
Let me be the first to say that Riptide is better with Rick Taylor
than they were with me. Their performance level has stepped up in
some pretty significant ways. I was totally blown away. New
energy, new material, new show, new Riptide.
Congrats to Ricky T., Timmy, Jeffrey, and Ricky!
I believe you will win in Montreal.
- Its a sad day when the Lords of Lock and Ring have to hang
it up. What a ride they had, and what a huge fan base they
I waited almost 30 years to hear another quartet as sweet
sounding as the Sidewinders to appear on our Barbershop
radar and was happily surprised when I first heard the
Ripsters at the Anaheim Convention was an instant fan.
I also felt they won the Gold on at least two occasions but
then theres that personal taste issue.
Fine gentlemen all makes me reconsider Denver now, as
Riptide was the main attraction for me.
Good luck guys..and heres hoping they you all find your way
back into another wonderful quartet Ill keep playing your
CD for as long as Im on this ball.
A fan forever,
