"[Rick] scared me a lot of times - driving a car through Topanga Canyon at breakneck speed. He could have killed us 10 times but he didn't care. Rick was laughing hysterically while I screamed for my life. He was like the angel and the demon all in one person. You never knew which one was going to show up." - Dave Burt of Heaven and Earth  MORE >>
