Twenty years into their storied career beloved Southern rockers Lucero are embarking on their first Australian headlining tour ever, and frontman Ben Nichols tells Steve Bell how it’s now family rather than whiskey driving his heart-on-sleeve creativity.

"Every emotion is worn prominently on every song's sleeve."
"Even the guys from Metallica invited us to play their festival last summer – it turned out that they were big fans, that was pretty random. It goes to show that it takes all kinds!”
Ben Nichols of Memphis country rockers Lucero explains to Steve Bell about how their hometown gave them a healthy disrespect for authority, as well as all that righteous music.
In a world where inferior bands like The Gaslight Anthem are revered, let’s hope Lucero leap to that next level soon because they clearly deserve it.
