Thin Lizzy is one of rock music’s most recognisable names. The fiery Dublin band exploded onto the scene with a fresh sound, look and attitude. Lead by the incomparable Phil Lynott, Thin Lizzy reached many peaks and influenced generations of musicians with classic tracks such as “Jailbreak”, “The Boys Are Back In Town”, “Still In Love With You”, “Cold Sweat”, “Emerald” and “Don’t Believe A Word”.
Most rock historians would agree the pinnacle of Thin Lizzy’s commercial success was in 1983, followed by the bands’ premature demise, as they played their last gig in September of 1984. Just two years later, the world was shocked when lead singer / bassist and founding member Phil Lynott passed away at the age of thirty six.
Twenty six years have passed, the world has changed, but the amazing body of work that is Thin Lizzy still retains all of its vibrancy and influence. A new line-up has formed to take Thin Lizzy’s music to a whole new generation of music fans. Led by alumni Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton (all of whom played in Thin Lizzy with Phil Lynott) the stellar line-up of the new Thin Lizzy is completed by guitarist Damon Johnson (Alice Cooper, Brother Cane), Bassist Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Ted Nugent) and The Almighty’s Ricky Warwick on vocals and guitar.
Thin Lizzy have already wow-ed fans and critics alike on a sold out UK tour in Jan/Feb 2011 and a show stealing performance at Download festival 2011.
Alongside the new line-up, Universal Music continues it’s acclaimed series of re-issues, deluxe and special releases of classic Thin Lizzy material. The latest offerings are deluxe expanded editions of the classic albums “Fighting” and “Nightlife”.
