Thin Lizzy

Thin Lizzy are a hard rock band formed in Dublin, Ireland in 1959. Generally classified as hard rock their music reflects a wide variety of influences such as blues, soul, and psychedelic rock. Drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/lead vocalist Phil Lynott met while at school. Lynott was also the principal songwriter and led the group throughout their recording career of twelve albums, writing most of the material. After Lynott’s death (1986) the band emerged in various incarnations initially around the guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes. Lynott was the first Black Irishman to achieve commercial success in rock music. As well as being multiracial the band drew its early members from both sides of the Irish border and from both Catholic and Protestant communities during a troubled era in Irish history
