Rick was ‘the’ muscleman at Colt during the late 70’s and 80’s. He had one beautiful ass that Jim French would feature in his photos. Bob Mizer of AMG would often talk of his ‘finds’. Ken/Rick ran away from his Mormon home at age 16. Like so many runaway boys, they landed at Bob’s compound due to word on the street. The cops would hassle Bob as a bad influence and a center of crime, but that was far from the truth. He provided shelter and a small income from shoots. He didn’t allow drugs and no hustling on premises.The cops finally relented and realized he kept things under control. Ken stayed there for about 2 years. Bob had also given Jim French his initial tutoring in photography and stayed in touch with him over the years as he was a source of raw talent, like Ken, that he would refine into his models. Jim drafted him to come to Colt and the rest is porn history. Ken, now Rick, became fascinated by the growing bodybuilding craze popularized by Arnold and became the muscle stud we admire. He did some great vids with Mike Betts. He eventually retired, went to school, married and had kids. He now lives in the Southwest…I think New Mexico. Much to his credit, he came to Bob’s funeral out of gratitude for saving him from the streets and starting a career that gave him a fresh start. He has a Facebook/MySpace page. His face has aged, but that wry smile and twinkle of mischief in his eye remains. A nice success story.
