Gary Clarke, who presents the relaunched rock show “Rockulus Maximus” (described as “the most northerly rock show on the U.K. mainland”), recently conducted an interview with Ricky Warwick of THIN LIZZY and THE ALMIGHTY. Ricky spoke about how his music career began, what his highlights were whilst fronting THE ALMIGHTY, and what might be coming up for THE ALMIGHTY as they consider their 25th-anniversary celebrations next year. The interview also touches on Ricky‘s solo career and THIN LIZZY. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
For more than forty years, THIN LIZZY has been delivering its brand of rock ‘n’ roll to audiences all over the world. Even with the untimely passing of legendary frontman Phil Lynott twenty-five years ago, the band has continued on. Over the years, many rock luminaries have graced the ranks of THIN LIZZY, including the likes of Brian Robertson, Snowy White and the late Gary Moore. Most recently, DEF LEPPARD‘s resident guitar wizard Vivian Campbell joined the band for their 2011 European tour. When DEF LEPPARD called Vivian back to their camp, GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus joined the boys on their European festival run last summer. Continuing on in the tradition of top-notch performers, the members of THIN LIZZY have announced that veteran guitar player Damon Johnson has joined their ranks as a permanent member.
Damon‘s pedigree is impressive, having first gained notoriety with his own band, BROTHER CANE in the ’90s. For the past six years, Damon has lent his skills to veteran rocker Alice Cooper, helping the master showman deliver his legendary show to fans all over the world.
