Thin Lizzy T Shirts

If Irish rockers are something you have a lot of time for then Thin Lizzy are the ones for you and you will have everything you could ever wish for in our Thin Lizzy t shirts collection right here at T Shirt Subway. Thin Lizzy are the Irish rock band that shot to worldwide fame since forming in 1969. Frontman Phil Lynott (bass, vocals) and Brian Downey (drums) are founder members who met in school, but there has been much change in the bands long history, with various line-ups since Lynott's death in 1986.

It was in late December 1969 that Eric Bell (guitar) and Eric Wrixon (organ) met in a Dublin pub, both sharing the desire to form a band. That night they went to see the band Orphanage featuring Lynott and Downey.

Lynott was the composer or co-writer of nearly all of their songs and they featured some of the most renowned guitarists of their time and he personally holds pride of place here in our Thin Lizzy t shirts collection.



The Thin Lizzy Style You Just Cannot Miss Out On

 

Their style cannot be confined to any one particular genre, as they famously incorporated a number of influences from country and psychedlic rock, Irish folk music, and their more recognised style of hard rock bordering on heavy metal. As well as this, they were famous about their multiracial line-up, with Lynott becoming the first black Irishman to achieve commerical success in hard rock music, and the band featuring members from either side of the Irish border.

Rolling Stone magazine described the band as distinct hard rock, "far apart from the braying mid-70s metal pack" and we are not one to argue with Rolling Stone so we have to agree. With fans spread across generation and continents their appeal shows no sign of slowing down and that is why we have created the world's largest non official Thin Lizzy t shirts for you to choose from.
