With Scott Gorham of Thin Lizzy and Black Star Riders
Thin Lizzy and Black Star Riders guitarist Scott Gorham picks his final two songs in the Tracks Of My Years. His Friday favourites feature a Pink Floyd song from one of the most influential and best selling albums of all time - The Dark Side Of The Moon. Plus there's an eighties rock classic from Van Halen which features Sammy Hagar on vocals after founding member David Lee Roth decided to quit the group. There's also the Friday round of PopMaster and a play of the Record and Album Of The Week.
American musician Scott Gorham rose to international recognition as one of the twin lead guitarists with the Irish formed rock band Thin Lizzy. Out of respect for Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott who died in 1986, Scott decided recently to form new band - Black Star Riders with musicians that had either previously been members of Thin Lizzy or had played with the band. These include Ricky Warwick (guitar, vocals), Damon Johnson (guitar), Marco Mendoza (bass) with new addition Jimmy DeGrasso on drums. Earlier this month, The Black Star Riders released their debut album All Hell Breaks Loose and the band embark on a UK tour at the end of the year.
