Guitarist and front-man of iconic rock bands Black Star Riders and Thin Lizzy is set to auction his denim cut off jacket to the highest bidder to support the excellent work Cancer Fund For Children are doing to help children and families throughout the hardest time of their lives.

Ricky Warwick will auction off the denim cut off he wore on stage during the Thin Lizzy summer shows in 2019.

The jacket features a design of Black Rose by Ricky’s step daughter Zoe Hinton (Instagram -zoehintonart) and it is signed by all members of the band: Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Darren Wharton, Damon Johnson, Troy Sanders, Scott Travis.

All the proceeds will be donates to the charity, which desperately needs funding, receiving only 0.5% of government help.

The auction is now live and is taking place on the official Black Star Riders Facebook page.

Bidders need to send an email to with their bid and their contact details (shipping and handling costs will be included).  The auction will end on 31st October at midnight PST.

The highest bidder at that time will be notified and settlement made.

Ricky Warwick comments: “This is a wonderful charity doing many good things and helping kids who have been diagnosed with cancer, they recently helped a good friend of mine who’s young daughter had been diagnosed and helped her fight and overcome this terrible illness. Please help them to continue doing the wonderful work they do.

Based in Northern Ireland, Cancer Fund For Children, offers support to children and their families and aims to empower, connect and strengthen them, so they feel better equipped to cope with the emotional impact of cancer.
