Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino - Niagara Falls, NY 12 June 2006 by Mark Laffrado

On June 12th I had the pleasure of seeing Rick perform for the second time in three years.He of course did not disappoint!! For two hours he entertained us with anecdotes dealing with his ex-wives to his days with Yes and even his relationship with his mother.His playing of the grand piano was nothing short of spectacular!!!!! Beginning with A Glimpse of a Dream and ending with an unbelievable rendition of Merlin,his playing was absolutely flawless!! He also played songs from his days with the Strawbs ,Cat Stevens and of course Yes.Most of the crowd were on their feet after each performance.My favorite piece was Gone But Not Forgotten which was incredible!!

After the show I was able to meet and chat with Rick where he was most gracious in signing autographs,taking photos and talking with myself and all of his fans.I've met him twice and both times he was both gracious and polite!!

If you have never seen him in concert don't miss this last chance to be amazed and entertained before he retires from solo touring!!

Rick best of luck and thanks for the music!!
