Interview with Black Star Riders at Download Festival

We caught up with Ricky Warwick (Vocals/Guitar) and Jimmy DeGrasso (Drums) of Black Star Riders at Download Festival 2015. Following on from our interview with Damon in February we re-visit the subject of record sales, and expand upon some of the issues in the music industry today. “Budgets are not what they used to be, there used to be huge record company support, record companies just don’t have that clout anymore” says Ricky.

We discuss the bands thoughts on fans buying physical music, or if the industry is moving towards being completely digital.

See our review of their most recent album ‘The Killer Instinct’ in Issue 1 of RAMzine.

Keep an eye out for our Download special in Issue 4 of RAMzine (out next month), which will feature full reviews of each day as well as many photographs. For now have a browse over out post-festival summery!
