The Almighty  - Vive Le Rock! - Ricky Interview
15/02/15 Nomad

The latest issue of Vive Le Rock! (issue 24) magazine has an ineteresting six page interview with Ricky Warwick, well worth a read.

As a bonus 'Destroyed' is also one of the tracks on the cover CD. If you can't find a copy in your local newsagents you can order online at Vive Le Rock!

Don't worry if you can't get hold of issue 24 as I'll add a copy of the interview to this site once the magazine is off general sale.

Site Repair and Rebuild Underway
29/04/12 Nomad

I know this site has been neglected over the last couple of years while I have been occupied with getting my life back on an even track. In that time however I can't believe how many Almighty sites have gone offline and this band needs a decent archive on the net for anyone curious to know more about this awesome british band.
So, from here on in this site will be fixed of broken links and have as much archive material that I have in my collection added for everyone to enjoy over the coming months and years.
Keep it All-Loud, All-Wild & All-F**King Mighty......... Steve (Nomad)

Xmas Tour Cancelled
07/12/02 Nomad

The band have unfortunately had to cancel the planned Xmas tour of the UK, here is the statement from the official site:

With great sadness, we announce the UK tour in December has been cancelled. With slow ticket sales for the shows scheduled for THE ALMIGHTY in December and after careful consideration, Ricky has made the decision to cancel the shows and to accept a tour of America with DEF LEPPARD where news of his solo album release is being well received.

As most of you are aware, the band have not been active in 2002 and have no management or record deal. This has been a very difficult decision to make and the band would like to thank their fans who had bought tickets and apologize for the inconvenience caused. Your support has been incredible and is appreciated by the band.

Almighty Support Act
03/12/02 Nomad

The support act for the xmas Almighty tour will be a band called Bad Pennies, aparently at most venues there will also be a local band on the bill. It's worth keeping an eye on the official site for more info.

Ricky's Solo Album
01/12/02 Nomad

Just found this interesting comment within Gordon Shearer's tour reports on

'Sav and I get into a deep conversation about luck versus talent in the music industry, and then get kicked out of the bar (it was because it was closing and not cause we were being dull, honest!). So we go up to Joes room and chill with Ronan and Ricky, to listen to the Ricky's new CD (out soon incidentally) whilst making a tiny dent in Joe's collection of sake. It's kinda cool getting my first hearing of it in the company of the three people who actually made it. It's even cooler to find that it's absolutely fabulous. Kudos to you guys, you've made a stunning record.'

Sounds like we're in for a treat when the album is released, fingers crossed we don't have to wait too much longer.
