My Condolences to the Bennett family. A truly unique, giving and loving individual. Was always helpful with a thought or two about a song he would hear me do and I was just lucky to have known the man at all. Fine chap all around

Richard was a treasure. A joy to know and enjoy his wit, humor, and great talents.I am privileged to have had in my life for much too short a time. His friendship was a very special gift. He is sorely missed. xxoo

A musical genius has left us. Not his song but "the melody lingers on..."

Although his passing is a sad loss to his family and friends because he was such a loving soul, we can be thankful for the times he spent with us and for the recorded music that will be with us forever. I shall miss the many talks we had before and after performances and his wit and kindness that he extended to me. I miss him so much. May he rest in peace.

It's New Years Eve day right now and I just found out. A huge shock. Just got off the phone with Pinky, catching up about this terrible development. Richard was one sweet cat, always good as gold to me. Invited me to a some memorable fetes at his place. My M79 bus goes right by his building and always brings up immages of RRB to me.
Huge shock . . .

My darling Richard. Living on in my heart and my music always. What a blessing it was to know and love him.
Devastating. He loved every minute of his life!

Cherish every moment of our friendship in New York at musical events...and loved trading singer and song opinions. Often he asked me if I knew a song with a certain phrase in it, and sometimes I was able to come up with it. Everyone loved him and we will continue to think of him whenever we hear his music. Fortunately there is a lot of recorded music...instrumental and vocal and classical.

A sad, sad loss. Aside from his immense musical talent, Richard was such a wonderful human being. I've missed not seeing him at Songbirds events, and now I'll miss him even more.
