Just learned of the passing of bass player Rick Gerard. Great musician. Always had a positive optimistic vibe. Formerly with Virginia And The Slims with Mark Francis White . Amazing musicians. I was the weakest link. Here is a video tribute capturing us at Gazzaries live on a sound board recording. Rick is the dark handsome man with the big smile. Only known publicity photos of Rick at this writing. (Many thanks to Terri Turrisi who took all the ‘Slims’ stills).
