Ep. 22 - RICKY BYRD (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts)

On this episode of the “It's Only Rock And Roll PODCAST”, we talk to original guitarist of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer RICKY BYRD, who spent over a decade with the band touring the world and recording their most enduring classics like “I Love Rock & Roll” and “I Hate Myself For Loving You”. He discusses working his way through the New York City club scene of the late 70's, to his current string of solo projects which center around the topic of his 30+ years of recovery from substance abuse.

Also co-host Luke Renchan, former owner of RI's premiere store for vintage and collectible vinyl Luke's Record Exchange, talks Butcher Covers, having The Ramones stroll into the shop, and how his son is spearheading the effort to get Rhode Island's community of working entertainers their fair share of COVID-19 relief funding.
