Black Star Riders Explain New Song
The group adopted the new band name out of respect to the legacy of the late Phil Lynott and to start the project with a clean slate.
Now, guitarist Damon Johnson explains the roots of a new track, "Hoodoo Voodoo." "Thin Lizzy was the music of my life, especially those great guitar parts," says Johnson from the studio. "There was something about this riff that very much sounds like it could have been on 'Johnny The Fox' or 'Bad Reputation.' I had this moment in there today when we were tracking it and Scott and I were like standing right in front of each other…his vibrato is one of the greatest of all time and I've totally tried to emulate Scott my whole life…and I had this moment of 'holy sh*t, I'm in the studio with Scott Gorham, playing a lick that I came up with one morning that sounds just like Thin Lizzy.'"
