Ryche is naturally very entertaining and he tells quite colorful story . The story of being asked to leave legendary rock band NEKTAR mid-concert , is one of my favorites . As it goes … Nektar was playing in a venue in New England . Ryche was on stage with ROYE ALBRIGHTON , when Roye , threatened by Ryche ' s virtuosity , turned his back to the audience and said , " If he doesn ' t leave , I will , and never come back !" Ryche unplugged , left the stage and never looked back . Perhaps the �rst of many “ disconnections ”.
There are some more stories that aren ' t quite as funny . One thing about being an artist , is how much of yourself you do reveal . When so much of one ’ s self is exposed , there ' s a lot more that can be hurt as a result of such vulnerability . Ryche has been fucked by friends and colleagues alike . It isn ' t anything new - all artists get fucked and Ryche has been fucked by the best … most notably PLAYBOY and LATOYA JACKSON . Due to terms of the settlement we can ' t really discuss the story in detail . But let ' s just say … both have had bouts of amnesia . One forgot and the other forgot to pay . Shoulda , coulda , woulda , Ryche was offered roles with FOREIGNER and BRYAN ADAMS . He declined . If hindsight were 20 / 20 , no one would ever miss a “ connection ”, would they ?
