Thin Lizzy & The Quireboys Shepherds Bush Empire 17.12.12

So the last London gig of 2012 and a double bill of The Quireboys and the band that calls themselves Thin Lizzy though any rock fan will tell you that Lizzy can't really exist without the late and sorely missed Phil Lynott. Mainly there for the Quireboys who played for just under an hour, with two new songs, though familar as they have been in the set for a year now. Ending with the classic Seven O'Clock it was a shame that the venue was not more packed for them, as it had been for Skin the night before. More people came in for Thin Lizzy who rolled through the classics such as Jailbreak and Rosalie. A touching Gary Moore penned Still In Love With You was played, sung by Darren Wharton who supported Moore in 1990 in his group Dare. Inevitably in ended with a rousing The Boys Are Back In Town.
