Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy are best known for their songs "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town". In July 1970, Thin Lizzy released a first single, "The Farmer"/"I Need You". The single sold just 283 copies and is now a collectors' item. By the end of the year, Thin Lizzy were signed to Decca Records and they travelled to London in January 1971 to record their debut album, Thin Lizzy. Decca decided to release Thin Lizzy's version of a traditional Irish ballad, "Whiskey in the Jar", as a single. The band was angry at the release, feeling that the song did not represent their sound or their image, but the single topped the charts. Eric Bell suddenly left the band on New Year's Eve 1973 and young ex-Skid Row guitarist Gary Moore was recruited to help finish the 1973 tour. Moore stayed until April 1974, but the band recorded three songs with him in that time. Lynott replaced Robertson with Gary Moore in 1978, and around this time the band loosely joined forces with Steve Jones and Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols. In this way Lynott was able to align his band with the punk movement and avoid being tagged as a 'dinosaur' as many other 1970s rock bands had been. However, in July 1979, Gary Moore abruptly left Thin Lizzy in the middle of another tour of the USA. Years later, Moore said he had no regrets about walking out, "but maybe it was wrong the way I did it. After Moore's departure, Thin Lizzy continued the tour for a few nights as a trio before Lynott brought in Midge Ure to replace him on a temporary basis. Ure had prior plans to join Ultravox. After a difficult leg of the tour in Japan, where some members of the band had difficulty obtaining heroin, Thin Lizzy played their final UK concert before their break-up at the Reading Festival on 28 August 1983. The last concert came in Nuremberg on 4 September, at the Monsters of Rock festival, after which the band members went their separate ways.
