Rick Rivets (born George Fedorick) is an American guitarist.

In 1971, he and childhood friend Arthur Kane formed a band which, after Rivets was replaced by Sylvain Sylvain, became the New York Dolls, the name provided by the new guitarist.

In 1973 Rivets formed the Brats. The newly formed KISS opened for the Brats several times before becoming one of the most popular bands of their era. In 1977 Rivets quit the Brats. He formed the Corpse Grinders with Arthur Kane on bass and their former highschool friend Stuboy Wylder on vocals. Kane left shortly afterwards. In 2006, Rick Rivets released an album called City Rockers with the Rick Rivets Band. He appears briefly in the movie New York Doll about Arthur Kane.
