Former Joan Jett Guitarist Announces Solo Release

Ricky Byrd, former guitarist for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, has announced plans for a new solo release. The album, Lifer, is set for release on February 5, prompting Byrd to break news of the release in an official statement.

"My main goal with this record was to try and craft the songs with the same heart and soul that filled the music I listened to as a kid in my parents Bronx apartment -- the music that even at that young age, made the hair go up on my arms," states Ricky.

The album was produced by Byrd alongside Bob Stander in studios located both in New York and Nashville.

Tracklisting:

1.) "Rock 'N' Roll Boys" 2.) "Let's Get Gone" 3.) "Foolish Kind" 4.) "Ways Of A Woman" 5.) "Wide Open" 6.) "Dream Big" 7.) "Harlem Rose" 8.) "Married Man" 9.) "One Less Love" 10.) "Things To Learn" 11.) "Turnstile '01"
