Line Up

BLACK STAR RIDERS are currently one of the hottest rock bands in the world of classic rock. Formed in 2012 with Ricky Warwick (Vocals), Scott Gorham (Lead Guitar), Robbie Crane (Bass) Chad Szeliga (Drums) and Christian Martucci (Lead Guitar). They are often billed as the next step in the evolution of Thin Lizzy. However BSR offer far more that that: rock anthems with skilfully intertwined guitars, extremely powerful vocals with a unique sound designed to leave you wanting more. Certainly a fitting headline act for the Stonedead 2021 Tommy Vance stage.
