Ricky Warwick is back with his band The Fighting Hearts. The guitar hero has enjoyed success playing with many bands, including his heroes Thin Lizzy.
Coming from Newtownards, County Down, in Northern Ireland, Warwick first started playing guitar when he was aged 14. First starting on acoustic, Warwick would play songs by Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen before moving on to the ferocious sound of punk and playing the likes of The Clash and Stiff Little Fingers plus other rock acts like Thin Lizzy and Motörhead.
Such influences would serve him well when asked to join New Model Army on their world tour for the album Ghost Of Cain. Having now cut his teeth Warwick formed his band The Almighty who would produce ten Top 40 singles and for Top 20 albums in the UK.
Warwick also founded the hardcore punk band (sic) in which he played and recorded in until both bands had disbanded by 2007.
In 2002 he returned to the acoustic guitar and embarked on a solo tour promoting his album Tattoos & Alibis. Warwick would continue to play solo until he was approached by the remaining members of his childhood heroes Thin Lizzy to front the reformation of the band. From 2011 Warwick embarked on world tours thrilling audiences everywhere. He also formed the band Black Star Riders to give himself a creative outlet.
The Fighting Hearts were formed in 2014 through a successful grassroots campaign which saw Warwick raise money to release two albums, one rock and one acoustic, which saw guest appearances from Ginger Wildheart, Jake Burns, Andy Cairns plus many more. He now embarks on the road to play these songs live.
