Richard Hell: RIP (Rior)****

Bill Black, Sounds, 22 December 1984

"RICHARD HELL HAS been the most emotionally compelling, brilliant, innovative and influential rock 'n' roll performer of the past ten years. Unfortunately, these qualities are evident neither in his live nor his studio performances. You'll have to take my word for it."
