One of the defining rock groups of the 20th Century, Thin Lizzy began life in Dublin in 1969 when childhood friends Phil Lynott and Brian Downey were approached by two former members of Van Morrison's band 'Them', Eric Wrixon (keyboards) and Eric Bell (guitar).
Prior to this Lynott and Downey had been playing together as 'Orphanage', along with Pat Quigley on bass and Joe Staunton on guitar. The newly formed Thin Lizzy saw Brian Downey on drums and Lynott playing bass and vocals.
Their first release, on Parlophone, came in July 1970. It was an original composition of Lynott's called 'The Farmer'. Out of 500 copies pressed, 283 sold. An inauspicious start maybe, but the band were destined for great things.
Bret Michaels has released the video for his new single, "Girls On Bars." The country-rock crossover is the lead single from Michaels' upcoming collection, "True Grit", featuring 21 tracks by the Poison frontman, which come out yesterday (May 4).
"It is a very Americana, fun summer song that reminds me how much I love music with a sublime video feel of hanging with the fans," says Michaels. "I wrote this song with my good friend and fellow Pennsylvanian, Luke Laird, who is a Grammy Award-winning songwriter of hits like Little Big Town's 'Pontoon', Eric Church's 'Talledega' and Luke Bryan's 'I See You.'"
"True Grit" features guest appearances by Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington and Rickey Medlocke, Jimmy Buffett, Rascal Flatts and Loretta Lynn.
