As you can probably guess from my username, Thin Lizzy are my favourite band. Sadly being 23 I never got to see Phil, but I've seen the various modern iterations (including my first gig at the Hamersmith Apollo about ten years ago, what a night). Has anybody seen Brian Downey's new project Alive and Dangerous? His way of keeping the legacy of Lizzy alive, and what a tight band. I had always wanted to hear him play Sha La La, and thankfully last year in London he did, the thunderous double bass drums for a solid six minutes is fantastic, as is his feel on slower songs like Still In Love With You. Managed to meet him afterwards too, and what a gentle, humble guy, not a hint of pretentiousness, just a guy who loves playing his music.
