blackstarridersw Last week,Black Star Riders vocalist Ricky Warwick and guitarist Damon Johnson dropped in on Eddie Trunk at SiriusXM Radio’s HQ while in New York City on a promotional tour for their debut album All Hell Breaks Loose – due out in North America on May 28th.

ABOUT Black Star Riders: In 2012, the touring members of Thin Lizzy began to seriously consider utilizing the vast songwriting talent within the band and spoke of it freely in the press. When Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey and keyboardist Darren Wharton bowed out of a new album and the subsequent tours to support it, the remaining members decided to band together under the Black Star Riders name allowing them to forge forward from – yet informed by – the historical legacy that the Thin Lizzy name is infused with.

The Black Star Riders line-up features Thin Lizzy members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper / Megadeth). Produced & mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Rush), their first studio album All Hell Breaks Loose features cover artwork by Gil Elvgren – the most renowned pin-up artist in the history of American Illustration.

The Bound For Glory single can be purchased on iTunes.

TED NUGENT CALLS FOR THE PUBLIC HANGING OF THE BOSTON BOMBER

TedNugentbuffalo Right-wing rocker Ted Nugent has taken to his column to call for the public hanging of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the now-charged Boston Marathon bombers.

The column, called Time To Stretch Neck Of Jihadist Punk, was posted on the right wing website WND over the weekend.

Using his usual colorful language, Nugent refers to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his now-killed brother Tamerlan using the term “voodoo” 13 times in his article, and calls for “stretching their necks” three times.

In the piece, he laments that Tsarnaev will likely spent years in custody before being sentenced, “Justice is supposed to be swift. At least that’s how our Founding Fathers thought it should be,” speculating that, 150 years ago “he would have been swinging from an oak tree in Boston Common no longer than 60 days from the date of his arrest. That would be justice.”

Nugent predicts, “He probably won’t go to trial for more than a year due to court-sanctioned delays. Once he’s found guilty, he will be afforded any number of appeals that will take more years, possibly more than a decade. The young voodoo nut has got a long life in front of him, thanks to America’s screwed-up justice system.”

Nugent closes the article with, “My dream of real justice would be a July 4 celebration of stringing this son-of-a-b**** up in the Boston Common and letting the crows pick on his rotting flesh. There will be no swift justice for the Boston voodoo punk. He’s got a long life ahead of him. How pathetic.”
