Ricky Byrd- Making a Clean Getaway!

Ricky Byrd is in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Blackhearts…as in Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

While “I Love Rock ‘n Roll” was a number one hit back in 1982, Byrd these days, is more interested in playing his heart out for something else dear to his heart.

Don’t get me wrong, Byrd is proud and humbled by his success but he is also a man on mission.

Ricky has just released an album titled Clean Getaway that features 12 songs all about recovery from addiction. This is a topic near to Byrd’s heart as he has been clean and sober for 30 years.

The album shares the same name as Ricky’s charity.  In fact, this album was created so Byrd can give the album away to the people he speaks, and plays, for in drug and alcohol rehabs.

Of course, you don’t have to go to rehab to get it!  You can check it out at https://www.cleangetaway.nyc/

It is a killer album.  Read our review of this amazing album to learn about the music on it, as well as his famous guests: http://www.classicrockrevisited.com/show_review.php?id=1709

Jeb and James caught up with Ricky for a rare serious interview for The Rock Brigade Podcast.  We are also putting this informative and inspirational audio interview up on Classic Rock Revisited because Byrd has an important message.
