Meet Ricky Rebel: Interviews, Part Two

Originally "published" in Satan Brand Magazine, 1995, San Diego.

More about Rick Rebel! I'll add some explanations between the scans. See here for intro and here for part one of the interviews.

Above: here's a link to Perry Vasquez, another 90s San Diego friend of mine. Below, when Rick Rebel says that "I'm spewing spew blood all over my face," he is referencing his favorite gag prop: foaming blood capsules. He used them all the time. He loved anything that would make him foam at the mouth:
By all means visit Baby Sue. Rick and I included their "Jesus Hates Stupid Homosexuals Like You" pamphlet in Satan Brand Magazine.

Rick did, indeed, later make several "Satan Lite" tapes. They feature him singing hilarious Satanic lyrics while listening to instrumental easy-listening albums of pop hits.
Rick claimed to have had several run-ins with various members of Stone Temple Pilots at the restaurant he worked at. It was always hard to tell if Rick's stories were real or just really good storytelling. I didn't care either way.

My favorite thing about this part of the interview are your contributions, Peter. I love the banner that you made using themes from RR art is beautiful & I also like the captions of the illustrations.

Not that Ricky doesn't interest me, he's a cool, complex guy. But I think my favorite part is seeing him filtered through your your view of him.

wouldn't it be great if I'd proofread things before I posted them?

I can understand Ace of Bass, and I'm totally with him on John Tesh, but Brad Pitt and STP? Oh Ricky.

Maddiane, thanks. All the drawings for these posts are from 1995, from Satan Brand Magazine. I designed the magazine and did lots of illustrations for it, but everything was strictly according to Rick's vision and sketches and ideas.

John Waters needs to discover this guy. Some of his phrases are priceless, like "I'd superglue my tongue to his butt". Darling!
