It's nice to know that people who have seen Ritchie in concert post their experience on it. It helps others listen to the magic he had and feel even more part of history. Just wondering, does anyone have any pictures of the event that they would like to share with the community and if so, write to me directly and I will make sure that you credited on this website for the picture(s). Any and all pictures are greatly appreciated.

About 3 months ago, a woman posted a picture of Ritchie at a Red Robinson concert in Canada. I can't speak for her but I'm sure she wouldn't mind posting the pic.
In addition, new photos of Ritchie have appeared from the Winter Dance Party tour:
Hello, Hope everyone is doing well. This is my first time in this site I really don't know how I found it but being in the Mortgage industry and it being so slow right now because of the Holidays, I have had time to surf the Net. I love to read biographies of people I remember hearing about as a child and Richie Valenzuela was one of them. I remeber my familia and I going to the movies to watch it. It was a good movie,very sad and kept me wondering how the family was doing now these days. I've had some of my questions answered just by reading some of the emails that are posted. Bob, Jonie and Steve wishing you all the very best and I think it is wonderful that you all keep Ritchie's memory going strong. My daughter is 11 yrs old and saw the movie last night and she cried. She also has read up on some of the biographies out there. Great Job and hope to keep visiting this website.
