Big Splash! New song/video: “Before I Go”

Randy Ricks reassembled “The Sheen Team” on the year anniversary of recording their cult classic, “Charlie Sheen.” This time, Ricks came up with another song that resonates with truth and honesty, although in a much different fashion than his holding up the mirror to Sheen. “Before I Go” is universal and timeless in its message: don’t take life for granted; do what you need to do and say what you need to say NOW–don’t wait! With the same crack musicians and producers in place (Tom Murphy, guitar, mandolin vocals; Bill Murphy, keyboard, accordion, vocals; Randy Ricks, harmonica and lead vocal; Ian Murphy, sound production; Erik Becker visual production), Ricks added professional comedian and talented singer/songwriter Dan Chopin to round out the mix with some excellent dobro and background vocals. Note from the author: “Two days after I wrote this song, my cousin Darin Westhues, died on icy roads after spreading salt to make extra money for Christmas presents. Darin left a wife and two young children, 7 and 10. He was an awesome, open and giving person. He loved to sing “Blue Suede Shoes” or “Delta Dawn” A Cappella at family reunions. When I woke up on Dec. 13 and wrote this tune, it came to me very quickly, as if the muse sat on my shoulder and I was just a conduit. To have Darin die just two days later, makes me really wonder… I am dedicating this song and video to Darin and all of his family. Darin you will always be missed and never be forgotten. ” Love always, Cousin Randy
