-Richie Rich is a recording artist and fashion designer.
-Before becoming a fashion designer, Richie Rich once trained under gold medalist figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi, later joining the circus. He also recorded two dance club singles, "Magic" and "Collision". Today he is part of the fashion duo known as Heatherette (together with Traver Rains). He has also made cameo appearances in the films One Last Thing... and Party Monster.
-The Club Kids were a group of young clubgoers led by Michael Alig and James St. James in the late 1980s and early 1990s. James St. James is the author of Disco Bloodbath, which is his depiction of the events surrounding the Club Kids and Michael Alig's murder of Angel Melendez. This group was famous for their outrageous costumes and extensive drug use -- in particular, ecstasy, ketamine, and heroin, although preferences ranged. Many of them were assigned names and personas by Alig himself.
-The club kids became an international trend influencing the party scenes all over the world. The Stockholm clubs Vegas, Donnas Delight and Delicious are just a few examples.
-After the Club Kids' rise and fall, many moved on and have not been heard from since. Many others are still active in the New York nightlife scene, including Amanda Lepore, Sophia Lamar, Richie Rich, and Astro Erle.
