Black Star Riders' Ricky Warwick Recalls Terrifying Studio Experience

(Classic Rock) Black Star Riders frontman Ricky Warwick admits recording their debut album started as a "terrifying" experience. The Thin Lizzy offshoot outfit have received general acclaim for All Hell Breaks Loose, released last month and produced by Kevin Shirley.

Guitarist Scott Gorham recently admitted the tracking of 12 songs in 12 days was something was a "pressurised situation" that he wasn't sure he'd like to repeat although he enjoyed it.

Now Warwick has shared similar sentiments. He tells Jam: "We recorded the album in 12 days and mixed it in five. Kevin said, 'You guys really have it; there's nothing I really want to change. It's all there.If you want to make an old-school, raw, big-sounding record, we're going to have to do it old-school. That means you guys have to stand in a room, set up and look at each other. You just play and I'll hit record.'"

As a result, the singer found himself without the use of a vocal booth. "At first it was terrifying," he recalls. "All the singing you hear on the record is me belting it out while I played with the band. I've never recorded an album that quickly." He continues here.
