Happy Birthday to Richard “Rick” Price – born June 10, 1944
Richard “Rick” Price (born 10 June 1944, Birmingham, England is an English bassist, who has played with various Birmingham based rock bands, most notably Sight and Sound, The Move (1969–1971), and Wizzard (1972–1975).
Price’s first band was the Shadows inspired Cimarrons. He then moved on to the Sombreros who later changed their name to Sight & Sound and moved in a more psychedelic direction. He began collaborating with Mike Sheridan as a songwriting partnership. In 1969 he joined The Move, staying with the group for two years including an unsuccessful tour of the United States. Price also contributed bass tracks to the early sessions for the debut album of ELO, but for reasons unclear, none of his bass parts ended up used in the final mix to the album when it was released in 1971.
