White Sister / Tattoo Rodeo Guitarist Rick Chadock Passes Away

It is with sadness that we inform you of the passing of Rick Chadock, who passed away this morning at 12:40am, after a battle with cancer.

Rick Chadock played in the original line up for  White Sister, and after internal problems within the band, he formed along with White Sister vocalist Dennis Churchill-Dries the second evolution of the band, Tattoo Rodeo. Fans will recall the success of Tattoo Rodeo’s “Rode Hard – Put Away Wet” album of 1991.

He then joined the reformed White Sister over 20 years after the initial split and they began performing again to critical acclaim.

UK Fans will always remember their performance at 2009’s “Firefest V” melodic rock festival fondly.

RIP Rick Chadock, you will be sadly missed.
