About BSR

A literal expample of the term ‘SuperGroup’, members of Black Star Riders (Aka BSR) will no doubt make an appearance on any Rock Family Tree worth noting. Bands like Thin Lizzy, The Almighty and Megadeth all contribute to the rich pedigree that forms the band and just looking at the lineup indicates the quality instore. Guitar/Vocalist Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy, The Almighty), Lead Guitarists Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy) and Damon Johnson (Thin Lizzy, Alice Cooper), Bassist Robert Crane (Vince Neil, Ratt) and Drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Dave Lee Roth).

Now in their 5th Year after forming in 2012, BSR signed to Nuclear Blast Entertainment and have released 3 albums in this time. The First release in 2013 ‘All Hell Breaks Loose” was met with equal acclaim from fans and press and paved the way for ‘Killer Instinct’ in 2015 and, their most recent release ‘ Heavy Fire’ this year. The majority of the songwriting is handled by Ricky Warwick and Damon Johnson, however it’s this writing partnership combined with Gorman’s classic ‘Lizzy Sound’ that really makes BSR something special.
