With Thin Lizzy and Black Star Riders guitarist Scott Gorham

Scott Gorham guitarist with Thin Lizzy and Black Star Riders picks the Tracks of My Years, with music from Free and the Rolling Stones. Plus, PopMaster.

Thin Lizzy guitarist and Black Star Riders founder Scott Gorham picks two more influential songs in the Tracks Of My Years. Today's choices feature one of the most successful singles by English rock band Free which ironically is taken from their final studio album Heartbreaker. He also picks a sixties Rolling Stones hit that contains a much loved signature riff by guitarist Keith Richards. There's another song from the Album Of The Week, the love song dedications and two contestants go forth in PopMaster.
