Thin Lizzy is one of the longest running original rock bands. Formed in Dublin in 1969 by childhood friends Phil Lynott and Brian Downey, the band went through some dramatic circumstances with the untimely death of original founding member Phil Lynott in January 1986.
Thin Lizzy went onto split up in 1983 and re-unified in 1994 (with new members). The current line-up is: Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton (all of whom played in Thin Lizzy with Phil Lynott) completed by Damon Johnson (guitar), Bassist Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Ted Nugent) and The Almighty's Ricky Warwick on vocals and guitar.
Top classic hits which made the group so famous are "The Boys Are Back In Town", "Jailbreak", and "Cowboy Song".
