For more than forty years, Thin Lizzy has been delivering its brand of rock 'n' roll to audiences all over the world. Even with the untimely passing of legendary frontman Phil Lynott
twenty six years ago, the band has continued on. Over the years, many rock luminaries have graced the ranks of Thin Lizzy, including the likes of Brian Robertson
, Snowy White
and the late Gary Moore
. Def Leppard
's resident guitar wizard Vivian Campbell
joined the band for their 2011 European tour. When Def Leppard called Vivian back to their camp, Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus
joined the boys on their European festival run last summer. Continuing on in the tradition of top-notch performers, the members of Thin Lizzy last fall announced that veteran guitar player Damon Johnson
has joined their ranks as a permanent member.
