Classic songs (“The Boys Are Back in Town,” “Jailbreak,” “Waiting for an Alibi,” etc.) and albums (‘Jailbreak,’ ‘Live and Dangerous,’ ‘Black Rose,’ etc.) still make Thin Lizzy a desirable act, even without the late/great Phil Lynott as their front man. In 2011, Thin Lizzy are set to tour America in late March and early April. The trek will include stops in Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Toronto, Detroit, and Chicago, and will also include a live appearance on the popular radio show, Rockline, on March 23rd, which will run from 11:30 pm to 1:00 am EST.
Thin Lizzy’s current line-up includes such ‘Lynott era’ Lizzy veterans as Scott Gorham (guitar), Brian Downey (drums), and Darren Wharton (keyboards), as well as singer/guitarist Ricky Warwick, bassist Marco Mendoza, and Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell. Thin Lizzy became one of rock’s top bands during the 1970’s, on the strength of Lynott’s poetic yet tough lyrics, and the highly influential guitar attack of Gorham.
Thin Lizzy split up in 1983, before Lynott passed away in 1986. But with Lizzy consistently having an influence other bands, the group’s stature has remained at the forefront of rock over the years.
