THIN LIZZY guitarist Scott Gorham tells Billboard.com that it may be time to bring his band back into the studio again. “That’s the No. 1 question we’re getting from people — are we gonna record some new material?” Gorham says. “The fans seem to trust this lineup, and I don’t blame them. We’ve kind of jumped this emotional hurdle together. Ricky’s [Warwick, vocals] writing some fucking killer lyrics, and with the kind of talent that’s in THIN LIZZY now I think we can pull off a really cool set of tunes. At least it’s something that we can think about now, where before it wasn’t on the table.”
Gorham and DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott recently spearheaded deluxe expanded edition reissues of the group’s 1976 breakthrough album “Jailbreak” and the same year’s “Johnny The Fox”, part of a continuing LIZZY reissue series.
“Joe and I had been fantasizing for years, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if you could get a record company to just throw some cash at you and said, ‘Go ahead and do some remixes,’ ” Gorham tells Billboard.com. “We were calling it ‘the millennium mix’ — what it would be like if THIN LIZZY were actually happening today but had all the advantages of all the digital gear and different equipment that’s available to everybody now. So when the opportunity came up, we just jumped at it. It was a hell of a lot of fun.”
