Even if he created the band 20 years ago, Scott Gorham never wanted to record new songs as Thin Lizzy. Thus, he created Black Star Ridders with some members of his ancient band but also Ricky Warwick (The Almighty), Damon Johnson (Alice Cooper, Brother Cain, John Waite), Jimmy DeGrasso (Megadeth, Y&T) and Robbie Crane (Ratt) who replaces Marco Mendoza.
Black Star Ridders released their first album All Hell Breaks Loose in 2013, modernized Thin Lizzy nicely welcomed by the audience and the critics! On last February they released The Killer Instinct, second traditionnal hard rock album more polished and ambitious than the first one. Black Star Ridders is moving forward and throw Thin Lizzy in the past with great hits like Finest Hours!
