INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Black Star Riders is a new “all-star” band that formed in late 2012. The band got started when members of the most recent line-up of Thin Lizzy decided to record new material, but they choose not to release it under the Thin Lizzy name. The band now consists of vocalist/guitarist Ricky Warwick (the Almighty), bassist Marco Mendoza (ex-Whitesnake, Blue Murder), and guitarists Damon Johnson (ex-Alice Cooper, Brother Cane) and Scott Gorham who’s the only remaining member from Thin Lizzy’s classic line-up. The original Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey and longtime keyboardist Darren Wharton decided not to take part of this new band and Downey was then replaced by Jimmy DeGrasso (ex-Y&T, Megadeth, Alice Cooper). The band released its highly acclaimed debut album ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE on May 2013 and since they’ve been extremely busy touring act across the world. Black Star Riders played its first show in Finland on last November. Vocalist Ricky Warwick sat down with us in backstage of club Virgin Oil Co and we discussed about the new album, creation process of new songs, the future of Black Star Riders and Thin Lizzy, possibility of the Almighty reunion and various other topics.

DAVE MENIKETTI

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

U.S. hard rock band Y&T was originally formed in San Francisco in early 70’s. The band soon earned a good reputation as a great live band and their self-titled debut was released in 1976. In year 1981 Y&T got its change when they got signed by major A&M label. The band then released a string of strong albums including EARTHSHAKER, BLACK TIGER and MEANSTREAK. In 1987 they switched to John Kalodner’s Geffen Records and released two more studio albums: CONTAGIOUS and TEN before splitting up in 1991 after the release of “farewell” live album YESTERDAY AND TODAY LIVE. Unexpectedly the band got together in 1995 and released album MUSICALLY INCORRECT and then two years later ENDANGERED SPECIES followed. In 2001 band did several shows but it took one more year before the fulltime re-union took its place. FACEMELTER, Y&T’s first studio album in 13 years, was released in 2010. Bands original bassist and founding member Phil Kennemore sadly passed away in January of 2011 but even that didn’t stop Y&T to carry on. The band, leaded by another original and extra ordinary guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti, is still going on strong and it seems that this band has still lot to say in the future. The band opened up their six week European –tour in Helsinki on late September and then we had a pleasure to sit down with Meniketti himself and discuss about bands future as well as many other interesting topics.
