On this Ricky Warwick interview, one day he’s plowing fields on his fathers farm and 6 days later he’s opening up for David Bowie in front of 85,000 people… growing up in rural Ireland & Scotland & moving to LA, how he “fell into” singing, taking responsibility for himself and realizing a low point in life was within his grasp to change, why “You can’t kid yourself…” Forming Black Star Riders and the challenges of getting that band launched, testing the waters in Nashville, tearing it up on stage (literally) with The Almighty, being a dad, not giving up, tolerance, humility, seizing life while you can, learning to say “No,” enjoying life and LOADS more. SUPER cool, awesome vibe and incredibly freaking REAL, a must listen!
