Vocalist, guitarist, and creator from the Canadian rock-band Triumph. It got four years after he became a member of Triumph for the group to have success. Among his a great many other honours, he was inducted in to the Canadian Rock and roll Hall of Popularity. He was created Rick Emmett but, because of a production mistake, his name made an appearance as “Rik,” therefore he transformed it. Gil Moore was his bandmate in Triumph.
