About Rick’s Picks
It’s Guitars. It’s Rick. It’s Music History. It’s a Fundraiser. From Rockford, Illinois’ skating rinks to Tokyo’s Budokan, Rick’s Picks tells the 40-year story of one of the hardest-working stars in Rock & Roll. As one would expect, Rick has more stories that his five neck has strings. Rick’s Picks also is a fundraiser for Rick Nielsen’s favorite hometown museum, the Burpee Museum of Natural History.
