Formed in Dublin in 1968 few would dispute that Thin Lizzy helped define the genre Hard Rock. From the mid-70s onwards, they championed the use of two lead guitars, it gave them a unique sound which evolved down the years and influenced the likes of Def Leppard, Metallica and Iron Maiden. After numerous line-up changes, Thin Lizzy called time in 1983, and in 1986 lead singer and main songwriter Phil Lynott died aged 36. All music's John Dougan wrote, 'As the band's creative force, Lynott was a more insightful and intelligent writer than many of his ilk, preferring slice-of-life working-class dramas of love and hate influenced by Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and virtually all of the Irish literary tradition'. 'Greatest Hits' contains all that is great about the band - the tracklisting overseen by Lizzy Expert Nick Sharp covers what is the best of the band's output throughout the years.
