Ricky Warwick started life in Ireland before moving to Glasgow. He fell in love with rock ‘n’ roll at an early age and never looked back. A steely eyed focus and the determination of a man possessed led him down a road to a major record deal and international recognition. But his journey has been fraught with failure as well as success. Hear Ricky talk about his personal journey, from his first band THE ALMIGHTY right through to THIN LIZZY and BLACK STAR RIDERS. What were and are his demons? How has this most eloquent and compelling of characters managed to survive so long and how did he find his salvation?

Join us as we discuss.

In my new series of podcasts – TOBY AND THE WHOLE TRUTH – I seek to uncover the reality of what it means to live and work as a successful person in the real music business. I’ve interviewed characters from every sector of this crazy yet obsessively addictive world to try uncover what it really takes to reach beyond the dream, step out of the garage and bedroom to escape the ‘normal’ world and become a success against the odds in the most competitive business there is.
