At Toads Place in New Haven. He put on a great show despite the poor attendance. There were approx. 100 people there which is a fucking shame considering how talented this guy is.Bonus is that I was right up front.

His tone was amazing.:yesway:He played his Signature Tele all night(I need one) through a new handwired 20 watt Marshall,the 2061x w/matching 4x12(do want).He used 3 pedals.A Sobbat Drive Breaker(?),his signature Zoom effect and a MXR Carbon Copy.The amp was dimed and miked and the front of house controlled the volume.

His vocals were spot on.So much so that I really can't decide if he's a better singer or guitarist and he's a Monster player.He was backed by a bassist and drummer using a five piece set.They were incredibly tight. I highly recommend checking him out if you get the chance.

Here's some shitty pics...

Nice one.:) I saw Richie a few years ago, and he definitely puts on a hell of a show.

He left Cornford for Marshall not that long ago.
I know Marshall have the resources to give him more support when he's touring, but it's still a real shame, as his tone with the Cornfords was awesome.

Cornford are a rather shitey company to deal with though - apparently that has something to do with why he left...

Trust me. His tone with these Marshalls are far superior. There is more low end dirt to it. I suppose if Cornford made a 20 watt version of his head he might of stayed. He likes to crank the volume all the way up to get the tone he wants and he just couldn't do that with the RK100 without irradicating the eardrums of everyone in the venue.

Yeah he can definitely sing. Him and Nuno should tour. That'd be one helluva show. They are similar in some ways.
