I had no idea Ricky Wilson was Cindy Wilson’s brother. Mainly because I only knew him by his first name. Absolutely heartbreaking that he passed at such a young age. Incredibly unique guitarist who was such a fundamental part of B52’s sound. R.I.P. forever. 🙏

An inventive, unique guitarist who sadly and very tragically died far too young. Check out his guest spot on Tom Verlaine's 'Breaking My Heart' if you've never heard him play outside the B-52s.
