Default Re: Brian Downey of Thin Lizzy

Brian Downey is an Irishman. Thin Lizzy an Irish band. Probably one of the most under estimated bands ever to play rock music. These guys could set their hands to anything. Ballads, heavy rock, commercial rock, easy listening melodic overtones of traditional Irish splendidly crafted to a rock format, some of their music is even what could be described as love songs mainly written by Phil Lynott (R.I. P.) the lead singer of the band for his daughter. Downey a superb drummer, check Lizzy out for songs like, "The Rocker", "Chinatown", " Jailbreak", "Thunder and Lightening" amazing fills groves, they have a gigantic catalogue, any and all of which should be available to buy.
