    He did have a backup but both his main and secondary drives failed hours before the show.

    I think the implication was, "why didn't he have CDs with him?"

    To which I reply; you don't tell Eric Clapton to bring a kazoo with him as a back-up in case all his guitars suddenly break.

    It sounded like both his copies are on the same drive.

    The chance of two separate HDD failing is so slim.

    One was corrupt... the other had broken pins.

    Richie doesn't play tracks... everything is done on the fly. His computer is his instrument. It's a live setup.

    He posted a pic of himself holding 3 back up drives on FB 2-3 days ago. Wonder what happened to #3?
    Or maybe that pic was after the first ones bit the dust.

    Pretty sure that was the next day... he received his backups and played that night at Coachella.
