Ricky Castro was the original guitarist in the version of Parallax Project that was formed to support "Oblivious". The mysterious and charismatic Castro exhibits all of the basic attributes of the best natural disasters: he's dynamic, compelling, and very unpredictable. Senor Castro recorded about half of the tracks on "Perpetual Limbo" before deciding to seek his fortune out West with Stealing Venus.
Legend has it that Castro paddled his way to the US from Cuba in an inflatable raft, carrying nothing but a copy of T-Rex's "Electric Warrior" and a ukelele. Legend also has it that he once banged Madonna, but then, who hasn't?
