Black Star Riders

New hard rock project from former Thin Lizzy members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza (along with Alice Cooper/Megadeth drummer Jimmy DeGrasso).


In October 2012 Thin Lizzy announced that they would not be recording new material under the Thin Lizzy monicker. The last incarnation of the band – Scott Gorham, Brian Downey, Darren Wharton, Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson and Marco Mendoza – would be looking to form a new project. Step forward Black Star Riders.

Formed by Thin Lizzy alumni Ricky Warwick (vocals), Scott Gorham (guitar), Damon Johnson (guitar), Marco Mendoza (bass) with new addition Jimmy DeGrasso on drums (Alice Cooper, Megadeth, David Lee Roth, Suicidal Tendencies), Black Star Riders entered the studio in January 2013 to start recording their debut album. The result? A sound that retained that classic feel but is very much its own as well; the next step in the evolution of the Thin Lizzy story.
