Re: “Rick West Theater

I can concur with all of the previous posters. I dont know when their blogs were posted, but I can tell you that everything said about him is true....unfortunately. I had the misfortune of working for him singing in his stage show for a brief time in 2007. He never paid me a dime, nor did he ever pay his devoted "zombie" band a dime. He must have slipped them some of that "kool-aid" bcuz they played and played for him for no pay, like he was really something. The band wasnt bad either. Sounds like another wanna-be ETA I was once associated with....who was glad to use everyone else's money, lie and deceive to get what he wanted, and to this day is still trying to be "Elvis". There will only be ONE Elvis, and no other talent can compare....and certainly not that wannabe or Rick West included. All I can say is, this outfit with Rick West and the theatre there in Indep MO was a disorganized mess. Rick soon showed his chauvanistic side by making it obvious that women were just a piece of meat to him. He disrepected me one time ON stage at a rehearsal on Sat afternoon in front of his zombie band, and that was it for me. I walked out on him, and as I left the building, his Octagenarian mother who was acting like a guard dog at the front door said to me....where are you going? I said I have had enough of disrespect an unprofessionalism. If you ask me, I think she was the one running the whole show, just to glorify the past when Rick West had a few "glory days" in Branson....and she could not let go of the past in which they were all living. I dont know what has become of Rick West today, but everyone says there are no shows anymore, and every time Im driving by that area, the theatre is deserted, and in run down condition. Never see any cars there. Guess he finally gave it up at last. This is 2014. Giving him one star because I cant post ZERO stars. Red Headed Songbird.
