Scott Gorham is thinking it may be time to bring the Thin Lizzy boys back into the studio again.
The venerable group hasn't released a new album since 1983's "Thunder and Lightning" and certainly have not thought about it since iconic frontman Phil Lynott's death in 1986. But guitarist Gorham, who was with the group from 1974-83 and has led various configurations of reconstituted Thin Lizzys since 1996 tells Billboard.com that the current lineup -- which includes original drummer Brian Downey, Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, bassist Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Ted Nugent), singer Ricky Warwick and keyboardist Darren Wharton -- may just be good enough to try to add some music to the Lizzy legacy.
"That's the No. 1 question we're getting from people -- are we gonna record some new material?" Gorham says. "The fans seem to trust this lineup, and I don't blame them. We've kind of jumped this emotional hurdle together. Ricky's writing some f***ing killer lyrics, and with the kind of talent that's in Thin Lizzy now I think we can pull off a really cool set of tunes. At least it's something that we can think about now, where before it wasn't on the table."
