Can understand why Brian Downey is leaving, as he's finding prolonged touring harder to do in his advanced years. Shame they didn't get someone with a Lizzy link to join, as opposed to Jimmy DeGrasso, but i'm sure he'll be very good.
Not interested in the new name, they'll still be Thin Lizzy in everything but the album cover, and once the album is out, they'll go back to touring under the Lizzy name as they have done since the mid-90's as the name recognition is where the money is.
Glad these guys are making new music though, as they are the best Thin Lizzy line-up since about 1979.
Shame Darren is leaving, he would have added a nice melodic edge and strengthened the vocal harmonies. I don't see how he can be leaving to focus on Dare? A band who don't really generate big money or album sales and release a "new" album every 5 years or so and don't really tour?
Would've been nice to see him stay on in a higher profile gig, but never mind.
I look forward to the new album they produce, although I am nervous that Kevin Shirley is producing. I'll just expect it to sound like it was recorded in a shed on a cassette recorder and hope for the best!
