Title: Ricky Fataar
Post by: DennysDrums83 on November 08, 2019, 10:47:40 AM
Hello.

I know Ricky was credited with playing rhythm guitar as well as steel guitar in concert in 1973-74.  Are there any concert photos out there that show Ricky playing those songs? 

I am referring any photos other than this one:

Thanks.

That would be cool, too!

I have seen a photo of him playing flute, but that was from his days with The Flames.  All of the concert photos I've seen during his time with the Beach Boys, they've all been him drumming.

I saw him play steel guitar. And, I believe, flute, on the Sloop John B intro.

Very talented guy. What's he doing these days?

He's been the drummer in Bonnie Raitt's band since the 90's.

He also worked on a couple of tracks off of Robert Palmer’s Heavy Nova album in 1988. I’ll ask  Dony Wynn (the late Palmer’s regular drummer/friend)  for more details when I get a chance to but I’m almost certain it was on “Between Us” and “Casting a Spell “

I've seen a few photos of Ricky playing rhythm guitar and steel guitar onstage with The Beach Boys. One of the former was in a late '70s issue of Hit Parader.

Thanks for the heads up!  So it was an issue well after he left the band?
