Ricky Ross: Deacon Blue’s Dundee Kid image

It’s 30-odd years since Real Gone Kid became Deacon Blue’s first irresistibly catchy pop hit, and lead singer Ricky Ross has been in the thick of a music career ever since.
Today he discusses his rollercoaster journey including behind-the-scenes tales of life in his iconic band. Alongside the colourful characters he’s met, in Walking Back Home Ross also recalls family life and growing up in Dundee, showing that above all he’s a born storyteller.
