More information

Moore was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and aside from his family's brief move to San Francisco, California in 1964/65, grew up in the Twin Cities area. "I didn't have any friends and really didn't want any. I just sat in my room and played Beatle songs and wrote my own," he claims. At this point, he was known as Rick Moore.



He graduated from Richfield, Minnesota High School in 1968. Fearful that he would be drafted to serve in the Vietnam War, he enrolled at the University of Minnesota to study Music Theory and Composition under composer Dominick Argento.

After performances with his band An English Sky, Moore utilized the services of an another local Minnesota band named Euphoria, and started performing as "Skogie", circa 1970. After unsuccessfully attempting to integrate An English Sky, Euphoria, and Skogie into a ten-person band, Moore wrote a letter and fired everyone but himself and one other player, then hired 3 people back, and formed Skogie and the Flaming Pachucos. Later, the band name reverted back to Skogie.



Around this time, Moore met (and soon after wed) his first wife Lucy.



Skogie released a single in June 1972 with the help of producer/manager David Zimmerman (Bob Dylan's brother), and self-released a follow up album in 1974. Creem magazine later named Skogie one of the first power-pop bands.
