"You Can't Make This Stuff Up"
Rick Roberts is a 40+-year veteran of the rock'n'roll wars. He began his recording career in 1971 with The Flying Burrito Brothers. He went on to do two solo albums and later attained his greatest success with the Boulder-based band Firefall. With that band, he garnered multiple gold and platinum albums. He has had over sixty of his compositions recorded by various artists, and has written several hit songs, including "You Are the Woman", "Just Remember (I Love You)", Strange Way (To Tell Me You Love Me)", and "Colorado", among others.
Rick began his second career as an author after a TBI (traumatic brain injury) rendered him incapable of playing guitar (and composing) for several years. He has written two books, "Song Stories" and "Lame Brain", with a third on the way.
He has recently returned to playing and performing a solo show called, coincidentally "Songs and Stories with Rick Roberts," in which he combines some of his personal favorites songs from his own catalogue with anecdotes from the years of colorful experiences in the world of pop music.
On the 13th, he'll be sharing a few of those stories as well as some insights into his books.
