Ricky Warwick Unplugs For New 'Psycho' Video

Ricky Warwick

(hennemusic) Black Star Riders frontman Ricky Warwick is premiering an acoustic performance video for "Psycho", a track from his latest 2CD solo package "When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)" and "Hearts On Trees."

"I heard the song 'Psycho' for the first time almost 30 years ago when I was playing guitar in New Model Army" explains Warwick, "It was performed by singer/songwriter Rev Hammer who was on the road with us. I fell in love with the song instantly and it has stayed in my psyche ever since. I found out sometime later that it was written by Texas songwriter Leon Payne. Payne is probably most well known for the song "Lost Highway" which was a huge hit for Hank Williams."

"The twisted macabre excess and understatement of the lyrics set against the beautiful, haunting almost sugar sweet melody drew me in straight away," he adds, "and gave me a strange yet surreal sense of unease. There is no doubt about it, it's a dark song about a dark day. Leon Payne famously said after he wrote it, "Don't ever record this!" Well… I did."

Warwick is joined on the double-album set by guests including bandmate Damon Johnson, Def Leppard's Joe Elliott, Ginger Wildheart, Andy Cairns, Billy Morrison and Stiff Little Finger Jake Burns. Watch the video here.
