Rick was born in 1968 and still not dead despite his appearance.  He's a natural born musician, he started at the tender age of 3 months old when he performed his first solo fart without following through. 

 

He's also performed with musical luminaries such as Javid Bowie and Englethorpe Humpdeflumft but despite this has still managed to be skint.  Rick says he's happy to be a Biscuit and not a Jaffa Cake.
