The overall vibe of classic rock n roll can be heard throughout all tracks of the album, especially with 7th addition “Fighting Heart” – with riffs and progressions that just make the heart ache for one to be standing front and centre for Ricky and his comrades to be blasting these tunes live, for now we can make do with enjoying this stellar album in the car or with a beer at home!
‘Burn It Down’ is a fun, fuelled, frenzy of fantastic rock n roll which makes the listeners hair stand on end
Overall “Heavy Fire” is an album that is ‘heavy’ and ‘fires’ on all cylinders. Black Star Riders is a vital rock’n’roll engine that energizes and entertains as far as it will go
The Ramblin’ Man Fair was the definitive highlight of my musical year in 2015 and with this year’s event seeing the addition of an extra stage, meaning even more excellent bands on the bill
‘Sacred Ground’ could well be the very best ‘Dare’ album to date it is that good from the songwriting , production to the delivery everything about this album is immaculate. So stand up and take a bow guys you have done yourselves proud, an outstanding album which will stand the test of time and still be a monster \m/\m/.
Rick Warwick, an inspired choice for front-man of BSR shows just why they should be playing arenas with Def Leppard and Whitesnake.
Thin Lizzy are due to release their second album in February ahead of playing a UK co-headline tour with Europe. Ricky from the band recently flew into the UK to do a quick promo tour for the new release. I chatted to Ricky as he took me through a track by track analysis of the new album and we touched also on a few other topics.
We all enjoyed doing the Lizzy thing. But of course, as I’m sure you’ll agree, it’ll never really be Thin Lizzy without Phil.
