Here is Episode 4 of my Local (Guitar) Heroes videos and its a special one, where I talk to “local boy” done good, Richard Shaw. Richard is a member of Metal Legends, Cradle of Filth and is therefore playing in the big league! He’s toured all over the world and played some massive festivals, including Download. He also got to write with the band, as soon as he became a full member. But he is still true to his local scene roots, as we’ll hear in the video.
We get into how he came to join Cradle of Filth, memories of our first gigs and we also get to indulge in our love for Paul Reed Smith Guitars.
