I was surprised to hear that Thin Lizzy were opening, not because I don't like them or anything. But because I thought they were a much bigger band than what it seems in todays climate. I never realised they are playing small venues like clubs and Academys, and obscure citys.

I'll be seeing Guns quite a few times in the UK, so I'm not complaining. Still probably would have prefered Sebastian Bach, just because I know more of his songs and really appreciate him as a performer.

Oneinamillion - even at their peak Lizzy never really broke out in the states, although they were really big in Europe. If Phil was still alive i'm sure they would be doing bigger gigs. Just think if they can book consistant gigs this size with only 2 original members then the possibilities if they still had their singer are much greater.
