ABOUT THIS WEBSITE
We have put together this site to honor Mr. Rossi and to share information, pictures, and all things Richard Rossi as a worldwide service to his fans. This site has NO official connection with Richard Rossi. We are just fans running a site about him in an attempt to honor Richard's work. That being said, Richard clearly appreciates our work organizing his accomplishments in one accessible place. He's complimented the fan site at one of his concerts, mentions it online & on his popular radio show "Richard Rossi Live," and even has it on his Twitter because it helps his fans find links to his art.
Richard mentioned our site recently in several TV and radio interviews and said, "God bless my fans, I am eternally grateful you have created a website for people to find links to most of my work in one place." However, in the interest of full disclosure, this is an unofficial website and neither Richard or his reps have officially endorsed everything on the site. This fansite isn't controlled by Richard Rossi or his representatives and he's in no way responsible for anything on it. So if there's anything you're upset about, don't blame him, blame his fan club. No copyright infringements are intended. If there is anything on the site that shouldn't be, let us know and we'll take it down. Please do not send letters to Richard via this site as the letters will not reach him. To send Richard an e-mail, use the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Richard is personable and writes back fans one-on-one as he is able to and schedule permits. He is currently very busy shooting his next feature dramatic film "Canaan Land."
There is no commercial interest, it's just a fansite. We are not an e-merchant for Mr. Rossi selling his work directly, but we named the URL www.richardrossistore.com because we are a conduit to post up-to-date links to his work and where to buy it to be of service to Richard Rossi fans worldwide. If you have information or news to add, feel free to contact us via e-mail at email@example.com
We have been touched by the power of Richard's storytelling in his films, books, and music. Richard has worked independently outside of a corporate system with a big budget for making and marketing his work. Word-of-mouth from fans and interested media have spread the word. Composer and Author Scott Sayre has summed up the feeling of fans well:
"A thing about Richard: It is rare that you can find a person who can tell a good story. Equally rare is someone who understands the spiritual underpinning of this world we live in. Also uncommon is a person who gets what music means. Yet, in Richard we have a friend who gets the underlying spiritual meaning of this temporal reality, has an ear for great music, and weaves intricate and wondrous stories with both meaning and compassion. I'm grateful that I have been a relatively close witness to his particular form of genius, that I have felt his phenomenal heart and the generosity of his spirit. It is said that the movement of all great art is from the center of silence. Richard gets that, and he moves from that space into a world where we all can behold his sensational spirit, and partake of the beauty he creates each time he builds magic out of nothingness!" (Scott Sayre, Author of Sugar Sensei, The Awakened Fable, The Mad Stalk, The Awakened Kitchen, The Distance Nearing, & Swings)

Top Three Favorite quotes from Richard Rossi's novel "Stick Man":
"Who wants to be a normie anyway?"
from page 99..."Animalistic, fiery passion trumped religious ritual any day of the week.."
"In my trapeze leap from guilt to grace, the net below caught me like a faithless flounder when I fell. I landed in a safe womb when I strayed from the narrow way."
Top quote from Richard's self-help book "Create Your Life."
"God is the ultimate artist, the Master Creator. As we turn over our gifts into the hands of the Master Artist, recognizing our creativity is a small part of His creativity, He flows through our talents to be of service to Him and to the world."
