Rickie Lee & The Fabulous 50s
Richie Lee was singing almost before he could talk. At the age of 8 he won a Buddy Holly look-alike lip-sync contest in Des Moines, Iowa, sponsored by KJJY Radio. His interest in Buddy Holly began at the age of 6, listening to CDs. He began taking guitar lessons at age 11 and drums at age 12. Richie has performed on stage with Winter Dance Party drummer Carl Bunch, Holly backup singers The Roses, The Tolletts, Larry Welborn, and the Legendary Peggy Sue Gerron as well as Tommy Allsup.
