The boy is back in town

Thin Lizzy drum leg­end re­turns

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Brian Downey is back with a new band and per­for­mance to cel­e­brate 40 years of Thin Lizzy’s iconic Live nd A anger­ous D al­bum.

“Af­ter the Thin Lizzy re­union shows fin­ished in 2013, I was asked to join what turned out to be Black Star Riders, but it just didn’t feel right for me,” Brian says of the band’s ori­gins. “In Jan­uary 2016, fol­low­ing an ap­pear­ance at the Vibe For Philo in Dublin, I ap­proached Brian Grace and that’s when we dis­cussed get­ting a band to­gether. Af­ter a few re­hearsals, Brian sug­gested that we re­hearse with Matt Wil­son and Phil Edgar, both of whom had been in a band called The Low Riders – their name was taken from a lyric from the Thin Lizzy song ‘Johnny The Fox’.

“In Jan­uary 2017, we jammed to­gether at the Vibe For Philo, and it went so well that we de­cided to form Brian Downey’s Alive and Dan­ger­ous and make it a full time propo­si­tion.” For more de­tails visit www. brian downeys alive and dan­ger­ous. com.
