CHEAP TRICK - Rick Neilsen To Appear On American Pickers
February 15, 2013, 3 years ago
CHEAP TRICK guitarist Rick Neilsen will be featured on an episode of History's American Pickers, premiering March 11th.
The hit television series follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they scour the country for hidden gems in basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and sharing their amazing stories with upwards of 5 million viewers each week.“What happened was pretty special,” said Mike Wolfe. “We’re birds of a feather, Frank and Rick and me. Collecting, picking brothers in arms. We were all three bitten by the same crazy bug early on in life and it’s amazing how quickly it brought us together when we went to Rick’s exhibit in Rockford. That’s when the picks really started flying.”
“Seeing Rick’s exhibit was truly mind-boggling,” said Frank Fritz. “For me, as a nearly lifelong Cheap Trick fan, I was in heaven. And, then, to dig even deeper with Rick himself – well, we can’t wait for the nation to see what we picked out of Rick’s storage lockers. Mike and I drove away from Rockford very, very happy.”
“Those guys are great,” said Rick. “Frank and Mike can rummage through my collection any day.”
The episode airs Monday, March 11th on History. Head here for local listings.
