In a Songfacts interview with Andrew Roachford
, he explained that "Ride The Storm" – from Roachford's 1994 studio album Permanent Shade Of Blue
– is one of the songs he's most proud of. "There's a few songs that you just don't do a gig without doing," he said. "One of those songs is called 'Ride the Storm.' What I like about that song is the amount of people that came up to me and say it kind of saved their lives. The lyric is about getting through a hard time, and people come up to me and say they were in dire straits and the song brought them back. You don't get a bigger compliment than that really."
