Amazingly, it has now been 25 years since the great Phil Lynott passed away dancing with the angels at the young age of 37. Rock fans had lost one of their greatest ever idols, a poet, a rocker, a charmer, a chancer, a hero, a wild one who could immortalize stories into four minute rock songs that will be forever etched into our memory.

The thought of Thin Lizzy continuing as a live band without their dynamic frontman divides opinion of past members, critics and fans alike.

Although playing for one night only in Dublin in 2005 in tribute to Phil Lynott, former guitarists Gary Moore and Brain Robertson have both refused to have anything to do with the idea of touring under the Thin Lizzy banner. Personally I can't blame Scott Gorham for wanting to go out on stage and play these magnificent songs for fans old and new alike.

Even myself now in my early forties missed the opportunity of seeing Lizzy in action back in their day, although I count myself fortunate enough to have seen Phil Lynott in his post Lizzy concept Grand Slam.

Fans who weren't even born when the singer passed away can now check out the greatness of not only Lynott's unique songwriting skills but also the twin lead guitar sound that is so synonymous with the Lizzy sound.

For this latest incarnation of Thin Lizzy, joining Gorham are original Lizzy boys drummer Brian Downey who is making a very welcome return and keyboardist Darren Wharton. 

From Def Leppard and making up the 'twin' sound is Vivian Campbell, and for the difficult parts of following in Lynott's footsteps is bassist Marco Mendoza and what really has set the tongues wagging, taking on the vocals is Almighty frontman Ricky Warwick. Will they be live and dangerous or will they die an angel of death?
