Scott Gorham Tried To Change Sound of Thin Lizzy Offshoot

(Classic Rock) Scott Gorham says he tried to force the members of Black Star Riders to avoid sounding like Thin Lizzy as they worked on their debut album All Hell Breaks Loose.

Once the decision had been made to drop Phil Lynott's band name and use a new one, he wanted to draw a line between the two acts. But he accepts it was a futile exercise and he's happy with the results of their studio efforts.

Gorham tells May The Rock Be With You: "I was constantly trying to drag everyone away from the Lizzy thing, just because I'm figuring we're going to do a new album, new band, new sound, new everything. But you couldn't help it.

"It's going to sound like a Thin Lizzy album by default, just because I'm in there because of the way I write and play and all that. Then you've got Ricky Warwick; the lyrics on this are just unbelievably good. Damon Johnson is a giant in this band and his writing leans towards the Lizzy side." more
