After Riot, he performed on Jack Starr's Out of the Darkness album (1984) and put out two solo releases: "Gone With the Wind" and "Even the Score". "Assume The Position", his most notable solo song, featured an explicit video.
Forrester was shot and killed in Atlanta at age 37 after he refused to give up his vehicle in an attempted carjacking. This crime has not been solved. He was survived by his mother Lafortune Forrester, his brother (guitarist Lucky Forrester),his ex(Windi Grace) and a daughter (Jade Grace) and his fiance, Lori Plester, whom he was living with at the time.
During 1985, Forrester performed in the collaboration Thrasher project (on Combat Records), singing "Bad Boys", on the album "Burning At the Speed of Light". He also recorded an album with ex-Keel Bryan Jay's(real name Bryan Hongola) band "Dogbone". Dogbone's song "Dog Fight Alley" has since been released by Ron Keel and his band Keel as the title track to their anniversary CD and re-named "The Streets of Rock and Roll" which gives no credit to Rhett or Dogbone.
Rare material, mainly from the projects Mr. Dirty featuring Forrester, Rob Robbins, (guitar) Scot Gains, (bass/songwriter) Ray Mehlbaum,(Drums)  and Dr. Dirty, was released, in 1996, in the memorial CD Hell or Highwater.
