This is why the Internet was invented. Legendary Irish band Thin Lizzy are known as much for their trailblazing dual guitar lines as they are for their tough but tender hard rock songs and now some maniac out there has edited together every Thin Lizzy guitar solo from their earliest recordings in 1971 to their breakup in 1983. Clocking in at over an hour and uploaded to Youtube, it is a non-stop aural orgy of harmonized guitar leads and searing solos from some of the best guitarists to ever strap on a Les Paul. The band actually began as a power trio with former-Them guitarist Eric Bell laying down extended solos but it was after his departure in ’73 when co-lead guitarists Brian “Robbo” Robertson and Scott Gorham joined that the band entered their classic phase. Their intertwined “guitarmonies” and trade-off soloing set new standards in twin guitar playing and were an important influence on the nascent heavy metal genre. After Robbo’s departure in 1978 a slew of awesome axemen took his place including the truly extraordinary Gary Moore, the equally accomplished journeyman guitarist Snowy White and next generation shredder John Sykes. Whether you only know “The Boys Are Back In Town” or are a diehard fan, check out the link below and revel in the non-stop wailing sounds of every Thin Lizzy guitar solo from 1971 – 1983.
