Black Star Riders' Ricky Warwick Recalls Terrifying Studio Experience
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.
