SCOTT GORHAM (THIN LIZZY, BLACK STAR RIDERS) WURDE 70 JAHRE ALT
- Mar 25, 2021
Thin Lizzy Sonny boy Scott Gorham was celebrated his 70th birthday on March 17th. The California-born guitarist joined Thin Lizzy in 1974 and became the twin-lead pillar in the overall sound of the Irish Hard Rockers, playing with Brian Robertson (until 1978) and later with Gary Moore, Snowy White and John Sykes. From NIGHTLIFE (1974) until the breakup in 1983, Gorham can be heard on all Lizzy albums. Similar to his band leader Phil Lynott, Gorham struggled heavily with drug and alcohol problems for a while. Scott Gorham played with Phenomena II, formed 21 Guns, had contributions to Asia and Supertramp, among others, and revived Thin Lizzy in 1996. In 2012, he had the then-Lizzy lineup transition into the new band Black Star Riders, of which he is still a member. Congratulations.
