Artist Jim Fitzpatrick writes:
If you love Thin Lizzy art head north to the Ulster Museum [for Overtones: Irish Music Art with the touring exhibition, The Art of Selling Songs: Music Graphics from the V&A] which ends on September 15.
I offered all this artwork to our National Museum absolutely FREE at least three times and no interest whatsoever. Normal for the South where art is rated on a facile ‘who you know’ basis and I’m not exactly an Irish Arts Council elite luvvie…

Vagabonds of the Western World?
This brow is cracking up.
Thin Lizzy Mascara…was it for this?

Thin Lizzy are set to record their first album in nearly 30 years, and their first without original frontman Phil Lynott, HotPress.com reports. Guitarist Scott Gorham (above) said the group will work with producer Kevin Shirley on the new album, and that recording will likely start next month. “I’ll be going out to Los Angeles at the end of the month to work on some songs with [guitarist] Damon [Johnson] and then I think we will start recording in October in our producer Kevin Shirley’s studio,” Gorham said.
But only if Jim Fitz does the artwork.
