Former HANOI ROCKS frontman Michael Monroe joined THIN LIZZY on stage at the High Voltage festival in London, England's Victoria Park on Saturday, July 23 to play the saxophone during the song "Dancing In The Moonlight". Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
THIN LIZZY's current lineup features Phil Lynott-era LIZZY members Scott Gorham (guitar), Brian Downey (drums) and Darren Wharton (keyboards), as well as GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus, former THE ALMIGHTY singer/guitarist Ricky Warwick, and bassist Marco Mendoza.
THIN LIZZY became one of rock's top bands during the 1970s, on the strength of the hits "Jailbreak", "The Boys Are Back In Town", "Dancing In The Moonlight" and "Waiting For An Alibi", Lynott's poetic-yet-tough lyrics, and the highly influential dual guitar attack of Gorham and whichever second guitarist he was paired up with at the time (Brian Robertson, the late Gary Moore, Snowy White, or John Sykes).
LIZZY split up in 1983, before Lynott passed away in 1986. However, LIZZY's stature has continued to grow over the years, as their songs have been covered by a wide variety of artists, including METALLICA ("Whiskey In The Jar"), SMASHING PUMPKINS ("Dancing In The Moonlight"), BON JOVI ("The Boys Are Back In Town"), SADE ("Still In Love With You"), the FOO FIGHTERS ("Bad Reputation"), and MASTODON ("Emerald"), among other rock bands.
