Rich Kids Getting Richer is the solo project of Todd Best. Todd is the guitarist of longtime Detroit favorites, the Killer Flamingos, and founding member of Vairon (Nettwerk Records). The Killer Flamingos have won the Detroit News' Sonic Summer Battle of the Bands and been voted best band in Detroit by WDIV Channel 4 and Hour Detroit magazine. Their music has been featured in films, as well as in television. Vairon won 89x radio's "I'm With The Band" competition to find the best band in Detroit and had their song "First Time" in rotation on the airwaves. The goal in creating this music is to take you, the listener on a spiritual, uplifting ride of edgy, dark, gothic reflections of 80's era Cure meets AFI, while still maintaining a modern rock approach. Take a step back to the way music should be, before the next American Idol, the cute boy band standing in line, or mediocre musings from the offspring of some rich music mogul/hollywood star/Mickey Mouse Club alumni . . . you get the picture. Attempting to find an unique voice instead of sounding like everyone else, not being concerned with appeasing the masses who are "pressured" into being told what to listen to by radio, magazines, and "hipster/scene" kids who are "too cool for school". Just trying to write songs that could be described as just plain good rock 'n' roll!
