The Hairy Bikers

Road Trip

3 CDs / 60 tracks

Released 1st November 2019



Fans of the Hairy Bikers will know their passion for music is as strong as it is for food.

When he’s not tearing around the world discovering new recipes and making new friends, Si King can be found pounding the drums with his band Little Moscow. Fellow Biker Dave Myres is equally music-mad, co-presenting with Si, the ‘Hairy Rock Show’ every week on Planet Rock Radio, where rock music and recipes reign supreme.

Music runs through the Biker’s veins and now, for the first time, Si and Dave have created a compilation album for their many millions of fans. Like their cooking, it’s been a labour of love…

The Hairy Bikers Road Trip is a mouth-watering collection, spanning 50’s rock ‘n’ roll (Chuck Berry’s 1958 classic ‘Johnny B. Goode’) to big-hair 80’s Rock (Whitesnake ‘Here I Go Again’).

In between we have:

  • Queen ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’: this anthemic Queen classic kicks off the collection and sets the tone. ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ has grown in stature ever since its 1978 release: in March this year, the song eclipsed 500 million plays on Spotify — nearly double that of any Rolling Stones, U2 or Led Zeppelin song on the service.


  • Lynyrd Skynrd ‘Sweet Home Alabama’: is there a better driving groove than this epic 1974 rock tune? Even Neil Young (about whom the song criticised) loved it…


  • Heart will keep your motor running with the global smash ‘Alone’: released in 1987, it spent 3 weeks at No.1 in the US and was a mega-hit across the world


  • Canned Heat ‘Going up the Country’: flutey-blues from ’68 that makes you want to dance down the road…


  • The Rolling Stones: ‘Start Me Up’: (1981) The Stones took their time with this one: the track started off in 1978 as a reggae tune before morphing into one of the ultimate rock riffs. What a great way to start CD2!


  • Motorhead ‘Ace of Spaces’. Lemmy. Philthy. Eddie. The ultimate line up and the ultimate hard rock driving anthem.


  • John Lee Hooker ‘I’m In The Mood’ (1951): the album closes with this early blues million-seller. At the time, it broke new technical ground, overdubbing voices and guitars upon themselves, creating three layers of Hooker’s vocal. Listening to it now will make you want to jump on the back of Dave’s Harley and head off into the sunset…
