I’m just riffing here.

Interesting to note that Riff-Raff in Rocky Horror Picture Show and Riff Randell in Rock ‘n’ Roll High School could both be an homage to Riff, the tough talking side-kick to neighborhood leader Tony in West Side Story, the 1961 Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins masterpiece. It too is story when music helps one find love during strife.¬†Riff-Raff and Riff Randell are two sides of the same coin. Youth of today, flip that coin and choose.
