1974: Rick Trembley/Original Helix guitarist
This is the only picture I have of Rick Trembley or “Minstrel” as we called him-one of the original members of the band who is hardly ever talked about. When the band first got together in 1974 we were all very young and green. None of us were great players/singers. Rick was probably the weakest link musically in the eyes of Bruce Arnold and Ron Watson (who pretty much ran the band at that point) and so—-exit Minstrel, Helix’s Sid Barrett without the drugs. LOL.
