Rock Dudes #35 is presented by PLANTRONICS and their newest headphone BACK BEAT PRO 2. This episode will be attended by the almighty guitarist Scott Gorham and his co-guitarist Damon Johnson from the band Black Star Riders.


Welcome to Rock Dudes #36, and a new international episode, the guests this time are Scott Gorham and Damon Johnson from Black Star Riders.
BLACK STAR RIDERS was created five years ago. The members were, more or less the same as in the touring version of Thin Lizzy.

Scott and Damon will tell you how and why they started a new band instead of continueing with Thin Lizzy. Scott Gorhamn is one of the most contributing musicians in Thin Lizzy beside Phil Lynott. He has now become a real Rock legend.
The interview was amusing and Scott was happy to tell a lot of stories from the early Thin Lizzy days.

Damon is one of the latest to join Thin Lizzy and that was a really cool journey for him because this was his biggest idols and inspirations during his life and career.
In January 2017, Black Star Riders will release a new album Heavy Fire, we talked about that and more.

This and much, much more on Rock Dudes 36 released today, Friday the 23rd of December.

—Rock Dudes #36 is presented by PLANTRONICS.

—PLANTRONICS started in a garage in Santa Cruz, California / USA started to develop communication systems for aircraft of the two pilots. For 30 years, they have developed several different headphones and Rock Dudes is proud that Plantronics will sponsor us with their latest model BackBeat PRO 2.

—BackBeat PRO 2 is based on their award-winning BackBeat PRO and the new design is mainly based on the feedback we received from our users. That means BackBeat PRO 2 is 35% smaller in size and weighs 15% less than its previous model. Just like the previous model, the wireless listening time is 24 hours and 6 months standby and works well as hands-free as it has two built-in microphones. The Active Noise-Cancelling (ANC) that filters out ambient noise while working or traveling. Incredibly nice when you want to disappear into their music. It also has built-in smart sensors that detect when you take off and judgment and pause and resume music for you automatically. Another great feature is the "Open Mic" position as the touch of a button turn the ANC set and instead boosts the sound from the environment around you. Good when you want to talk to someone quickly but do not take off your headphones.
