Ahead of Black Star Riders’ slot at Ramblin’ Man Fair next month, Ricky Warwick has passionate extolled the virtues of rock and roll.
In our exclusive Planet Rock video clip, Ricky was asked the simple question - will rock and roll ever die?
Enthusiastic in his response, the Northern Irish vocalist said: “Rock n’ Roll will never die because people need it and people want it.
“It’s a culture thing, it’s an escapism, it’s something to enhance your mood, it’s something to make you happy, something to make you sad, it’s something to turn to when everything else is going to s***, it’s something to hold on to, something to give you belief, it’s something to fire your soul, stimulate imagination, transcend you to a different place inside your head and your mind.”
Ricky continued: “It’s the answer to a lot of questions. A lot of people say that rock and roll can’t change the world – it absolutely can and it absolutely has and it will continue to do so. People will always want rock and roll, more so than a lot of other things in life. The truth.”
