Thin Lizzy to debut new songs
Excited: Scott Gorham
Thin Lizzy will debut new material when they play a show in Dublin in December – by which time they’ll have finished recording their first album without Phil Lynott.
Guitarist Scott Gorham has revealed plans to unveil their latest tracks when they return from studio work with big-name producer Kevin Shirley, due to start in a fortnight.
Lizzy currently consist of veterans Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton behind former Almighty frontman Ricky Warwick, Marco Mendoza and Damon Johnson. The lineup has also included Def Leppard’s Vivian Campbell and Guns’n'Roses’ Richard Fortus.
Gorham tells Hot Press: “I’ll be going out to Los Angeles at the end of the month to work on some songs with Damon Johnson, then we’ll start recording in Kevin’s studio.
“We’re all excited about the new record – but especially Ricky Warwick and Damon. You have six guys that are chomping at the bit. We can’t wait to get this thing going.”
He says of the Dublin show: “Hopefully we’re going to cook up a couple of songs. I think that would be a good thing to do. I hope I’m not talking too soon.”
The band reignited in 2010 after a lineup led by John Sykes collapsed. He’d reactivated the name in 1996, ten years after Lynott’s death.
