A few years ago, a guy named Rick wrote to me about the years he spent living in SoHo. About how he had a storefront gallery on Grand Street, about the time he saved the cross from the roof of the partially demolished St. Alphonsus Church on West Broadway, about all of the assemblages he made with objects found on the street. It was only later that I realized that this Rick was the same Rick who was the artist of MTV's Beavis and Butt-Head Comic Book. It turned out that he had not only once been my neighbor, he had also been a contributor to my pop culture landscape growing up. Read my interview with Rick about his SoHo days and about what he’s been up to since here>>
