Hi Virginia: It is with a great feeling of sadness that I learnt of Ricky’s passing. You and I never met but knew of each other and I share you sad loss. I know I speak for the other surviving members of the Kingbees -Neil, Alistair & Graham (IG) – when I say we will miss him and his influence on us and I will play our music today with a great feeling of sorrow but also happiness at the memories it will bring back. Love and prayers.

Hello Johnny, Thank you for your message. I still have a copy of the music you sent. I remember seeing the King Bees at an Eastwood school dance and hearing Ricky playing a Shadows number 🙂 Love and Light, Virginia and the Family xxx
