Rick Froberg Remembered

Following the devastating news of his shocking death on June 30, 2023, I remember Rick Froberg, who is someone I’ve admired most of my life and became friends with over the past 20 years. Featuring my recollections about his artwork, songwriting, and bands like Pitchfork, Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, and Obits, and archival interviews I conducted with Rick about such things in 2005, 2009, and twice in 2011. Rick was truly unique, warm, and supportive, and I love him. Thank you, Rick. Photo by: O.
