Black Star Riders is the new band formed by former members of 2000-era Thin Lizzy. The band, including Lizzy veteran Scott Gorham, is currently recording in California with lauded producer Kevin Shirley. BSR now have their own YouTube channel, where they are releasing snippets of work in progress.
Guitarist Damon Johnson says: "Ricky (Warwick, vox/guitars) or I would bring in a song idea, and as soon as Scott starts playing on it, it sounds like Thin Lizzy, whether Scott realizes it or not. Everybody who's heard the new music says it has that classic Thin Lizzy vibe. No, it can't sound like the original band. But that classic Lizzy vibe is absolutely there.”
