Rich is currently performing with Andrew W.K. He has also performed with Mike Pachelli, Sean Chambers and Hubert Sumlin. Rich has been influenced by many artists including Steve Smith, Billy Cobham, Buddy Rich, Dom Famularo, Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl, Neal Peart, Peter Criss and John Bonham. Rich says that his first drumset every purchased was a Gretsch kit. He said he began playing Gretsch 22 years ago and still plays them today because of that great Gretsch sound and reliability. Rich's advice for aspiring musicians is to always practice four limb coordination. Work with a metronome. Practice to become affluent in all musical styles.
