Thin lizzy part ways with John Sykes

FUCK. Well, time to call it a day, I guess. Not that I had any real hopes of seeing them live anyway, but this is just shit. John Sykes is a god. They have NO hope of finding a worthy replacement(s). Well, unless Jorn lande is stepping up to the mic and Doug Aldrich is gonna be on guitar.

That's a shame. Anything else Gorham does with Lizzy would be a cashgrab. When was the last time they toured the US anyways?

Excuse me for saying so, but isn't any post-Lynott Thin Lizzy touring ultimately a cash grab?

No, it's a tribute. If the band were trying to go out and make new albums and remain fully active, I'd be upset. But I think what they've been doing is completely fine. Going out and paying tribute to Phil lynott and his music once in a while. You won't find any big Thin lizzy fan that thinks this has been a cash grab as opposed to a tribute.

Thats pretty crappy news. I feel relieved that I decided against the Rocklahoma date where Thin Lizzy was playing. I've pretty much decided this will be yet another band I will not ever get to see play live and it kind of bums me out.

Too bad, now we have pretty much no chance of hearing those songs played again Not that I was expecting to anyway, last time Lizzy played here was 2004 with Deep Purple. I was a loser for missing that
