Thin Lizzy Name Change Wasn't Problem For Label Boss

(Classic Rock) Nuclear Blast president Monte Conner says he wasn't put off signing Thin Lizzy even when they decided to change their name.

Last week the band exclusively revealed via Classic Rock the reasons behind using a new title, Black Star Riders, and the departure of drummer Brian Downey and keyboardist Darren Wharton.

Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Damon Johnson, Marco Mendoza and new drummer Jimmy DeGrasso will start work on their debut album next week alongside producer Kevin Shirley.

And Conner insists he didn't think twice about signing the band even though the change of name could affect their public profile.
