Black Star Riders May Take Different Approach To Next Album

(Classic Rock) Black Star Riders guitarist Scott Gorham admits recording debut album All Hell Breaks Loose was a challenge because producer Kevin Shirley had them lay down twelve tracks in twelve days. And he's recalled how he learned the art of songwriting from Thin Lizzy bandmate Phil Lynott.

BSR played their first-ever show last night in Milton Keynes just days after All Hell Breaks Loose went on sale. The band, fronted by Ricky Warwick, will head out on a UK tour later this year.

Gorham tells Songfacts: "It's totally different recording a BSR album to any Thin Lizzy album that I've ever done. One of the main differences was in the time that we didn't take to do it this was literally twelve songs in twelve days.

"That's because that's how Kevin Shirley likes to work. He doesn't like to sit there and put the microscope on this note or that note, or this passage, or this guitar tone. It was kind of a pressurised situation. It was really a fun thing to do it that way."

He adds: "I'm not sure that any of us are going to do it that way again but he did catch a lot of what we were all about on stage, especially for the last year and a half. He got some good stuff." more on this story
