In the minds of many, the 1980s will forever be remembered as a decade characterized by innovation, overindulgence, and transcendent music.

While you may not know Ray West by his face, or by his name, one thing is certain, take one listen to the music of Spread Eagle, and you will know West by the scream.
While the original four members of Spread Eagle may have each forged their own paths and may find themselves in different parts of the world, the fact remains that the music they made will bond them forever and that those songs will stand the test of time. No one will ever be able to take that away from Paul, Ray, Rob, and Tommi.

Rik DeLuca’s journey through Rock ‘N’ Roll hasn’t always been easy, but like the band for which he pounds the skins, Spread Eagle, Rik is nothing if not persistent, and resilient.
