"I remember having a lot of trouble playing along to that one, and I remember freaking out when I heard Kill ‘em All my Metallica. I couldn’t believe that someone could actually play that fast, then soon after that I heard Reign in Blood by Slayer and I was totally blown away."Richard continued to play in the school band througout grade school and high school.
"I really enjoyed marching band in high school, the rudiments that I learned then was the foundation of everything that I do today. I still practice rudiments and snare drum solos daily, and I incorporate that into what I play on the drumset."In 1989 Richard joined his first band, Syzygy. The band was based in Fort Scott, Kansas and included guitar player, singer John Pyne and bass player John Bennett. They were a cover band that played Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Metallica and many other bands’ songs. They frequently played a bar in Fort Scott called the Silver Spur and also put together massive ten keg parties at nearby Elm Creek Lake.
