Rick Warwick, an inspired choice for front-man of BSR shows just why they should be playing arenas with Def Leppard and Whitesnake.
This faithful editor finally got a chance to leave the friendly confines of MGM headquarters, and hit the road for the amazing Black Star Riders, the Thin Lizzy spirited revival.
Interview with Marco Mendoza (Bass) (Black Star Riders)
In conclusion the evening delivered quality entertainment, and like everybody else that had witnessed the Black Star Riders introductory performance I would be proud to say as per the official event badge and T-shirt that “I was there” “Bound for Glory”? I think that Black Star Riders wont be long in achieving that status, already on the way with current chart placing of the “All Hell Breaks Loose” release. Successfully bridging the past and present of the band this marks a new and exciting chapter in their history, inevitable world domination waits!!!
Black Star Riders entered studio in Los Angeles in January 2013 to start recording their debut album with the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Rush). The album will feature material the band wrote whilst touring as Thin Lizzy and the sound retains that classic feel but is very much its own as well. The Black Star Riders record is the next step in the evolution of the Thin Lizzy story.
