Phil Lynott… 65th Birthday

There's no denying that THIN LIZZY are one of Ireland's greatest music exports of all time. The band's music has reached far afield and been embraced by everyone from BON JOVI to HENRY ROLLINS, citing the legendary Dublin band and Phil Lynott as being a huge influence on their music.

Today would have been Phil Lynott's 65th birthday so in honour of the legendary THIN LIZZY front man…!!!

Play some LIZZY today! And play it loud!

Colin Mcquillan… [R.I.P.]

Sad news from legendary Belfast Punk Rockers RUNNIN’ RIOT with the news that vocalist Colin Mcquillan has passed away!

Statement posted 18/08/2014 from the band…

"We are devastated to announce that our brother and comrade Colin passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning.

Anyone who knew Colin knows his passion for music and his love for Runnin' Riot and our family/fans.

We would like to thank Lars and The Old Firm Casuals for their unwavering support at this time, and pulling the tour would never have been an option for Colin. So with our blessing the show must go on.

For now our priority is getting Colin home to the arms of Belfast town. Our love and thoughts go out to Nikki and Colin's extended family.

Sleep well tonight mate,
Marty, Ralph and Eden."
