Was interested in lessons, thanks!
I am friend and student of Jeff Andrews.... one of the projects I’m in now involves reggae grooves. The drummer in the band has more of a rock background. Would you consider working with him to help him learn this style.
II hope you're doing well. It's been a long time, and I seem to have lost your contact info. If you're so inclined, shoot me an email with your phone number so we can catch up in WhatsApp. or whatever. It would be great to hear from you.
Un fuerte abrazo,
Hey Ritchie I had the honor of being your drum tech and lighting director for spyro gyra on the 89-90 tours greatest drummer I ever worked with ! Thank you for those memories
Tal vez me recuerdas de Residential College en Ann Arbor. Estaba pensando en ti y decidi buscarle a ud en la internet. Pues, veo que estas bien y que tiene una vida lleno de las cosas buenas. Enough of my broken Spanish. I just wanted to say hello. I knew you would go far, when I briefly knew you in 71. My life is good and I just thought I would say helio. Sincerely, Peg Nemoff
Don Alias and I started writing a book about 20 years ago, and I'm in the final stretch of completing it. I've been interviewing people who knew/played with him including Chick, McBride, DeJohnette, etc. Someone told me you interacted with him. If that's the case, would you consider doing an interview with me for the book? Hope so.
Wishing you the best,
hey richie where u at?

I'm in NYC till 5/4 showcasing my new musical Nicholas Nickleby at the Theater For The New City in the East Village. Seeing Ellen & Norman Sunday
All the best,
I don't know if you remember me, but I worked with Spyro Gyra when you were playing with them. I am in the process of cleaning up the drum kit I bought from you back in the 80's and thought I'd see how you were doing. I think the kit in the picture in your gallery labeled "It's Was All Yellow" is the same one.
I hope you are doing well and still playing as amazingly as the last time I heard you.
Dear Richi Morales,
i am a drummer from Switzerland following your drumming career with interest since years. Especially your time with Spyro Gyra was inspiring a lot my drum playing. But there is one song, that has been still a secret to me, which always drops my jaw listening to it: the song "Breakout" on the same named album . Unfortunately i am not able to hear exactly the ghost notes you are playing. Also the right hand cymbal figure is quite hard to difine. Does it exist a transcription from the groove?
Thank you very much for your suggestions
I am digitalizing my Spyro Gyra early collection. The 80's were albums as you know and I have no way to play them anymore. I was just listening to Breakout and my favorite song is body wave written by you. Just wanted to say still listening to you and enjoying your talent. Hope this finds you and your family well.

Great to share the stage with you at May Pang's party Sunday! I'm a huge fan.

Greeting's! I hope these words find you you in the best of health and spirits. I just wanted to tell you I've always loved the way you play the drums. I saw you live with Gato in 78, Chicago Theatre with George Benson. When the Caliente album was on fire! I even met you, I was sixteen at the time, and couldn't believe a human could play the drums the way you did! Who was that bass player? WOW! Fiesta was always my fav. I think about you all the time and those memories. May God continue to bless you and your entire family. Always Striving High, Steve Green
Richie: When I gave you that drum pad so long ago I knew you would be one of the best. Love, Uncle Nick
Hola, Senor Morales! My name is Bert Canfield, and I have loved the music you created with SpyroGyra for a very long time. I am also a drummer, and I am extremely fond of your music and talent. You have been my biggest influence in developing my skills. ("Daddy's Got A New Girl Now" from the Rites of Summer album is the ringtone for my daughters on my cell phone).
I have been recovering from the illness encephalitis for almost one year now, and I wanted to thank you for your music. It has helped me a great deal in my healing process. Muchas gracias, mi amigo! Que el Señor los bendiga a todos!
I was bored in the office, goofing around on the internet, and came upon your webpage, so I thought I'd give you a shout out. I've thought of you frequently over the years and have tried to follow your career from afar. It makes me happy to know that you've had so much professional sucess; you certainly deserve it. I'm still down in Miami, still practicing law, enjoying my second marriage, and doing my best to age with as much dignity and decorum as possible against the ever-rising tide of South Beach youth and beauty. It would be great to get together sometime to catch up. If you ever get down this way, please let me know so that I can take you out again for some good comida cubana. (Do you remember the dinner at La Carreta many years ago after the Spyro Gyra concert?) In any event, drop me a line when you have a free minute; I'd love to hear from you.
Kenwood here. I have a student named Ronald Stockwell. He\'s finishing up at the New School in Nyc and he\'s looking for a masters in performance and education. Would you recommend SUNY Purchase?

Hope all\'s well. :-) what is your email address? Peace
