St. Louis metal act Black Fast just released a cover of “Thunder and Lightning,” the classic Thin Lizzy track from 1983 album of the same name. Check it out below.
“Thin Lizzy is my favorite band,” says frontman and guitarist Aaron Akin. “I have this double live album they recorded on their last tour called ‘Life’ that starts with this song. You can hear the crowd, imagine them walking out onstage and going right into this track. Sadly ‘Thunder and Lightning’ was the last Thin Lizzy record, Phil died a few short years after its release.”
He goes on tosay, “It oozes cool, as he did. And the John Sykes guitar solo! I had to call on one of my best buds Reece Scruggs (Havok / Century Media Records) to step up and let one rip for us and he absolutely nailed it. I think this fucker landed pretty cool. Its dangerous. it’s streetlights and leather. It’s a switchblade.”
