Thin Lizzy's Gorham Says Everyone Saw Ricky Warwick Hire As Crazy

Thin Lizzy

(Classic Rock) Scott Gorham admits everyone thought he was "f***ing crazy" to recruit singer Ricky Warwick to front Thin Lizzy. The guitarist says he's worked closely with all members he's chosen for the band - which also includes Judas Priest drummer Scott Travis and Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton.

Gorham tells MusicRadar: "I remember when I first hired Ricky to front Thin Lizzy, everybody thought I was f***ing crazy. They said, 'What? The guy from the Almighty?'

"I had worked with him before, and knew people needed to give him a chance. After we did the first tour, everybody got it. I feel pretty vindicated in that respect, in that I can say, 'I told you so.'"

He continues: "You have to think long and hard about who wants to be in your band, and then who can be in your band. With Thin Lizzy, my head is on the chopping block if I don't get the right members in.

"Thankfully, so far, I have picked the right people for the right jobs, and long may that continue. It's not like I pick guys out of thin air or just watch them on YouTube. I have been up close and personal with the guys in the band before they joined, so that way I have 100% confidence that it will work and that it will work in a big way." Read more here.
