Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist and vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy’s most successful songs, “Whiskey in the Jar”, “Jailbreak” and “The Boys Are Back in Town”, were all major international hits which are still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott’s death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based initially around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. Gorham later continued with a new line-up including Downey. – Wikipedia
