    Hi Jimmy
    Good luck with the band.

    I’m currently writing my book about Thin Lizzy. I met Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Marco Mendoza backstage in Plymouth in Jan 2012. Marco and I have kept in touch ever since. He is a great guy and I just love his music. I’m so glad that you decided to be a part of the band. With your superb talent and experience BSR can only conquer the world.

    I’ll be following everything Black Star Riders will be doing from now on and wish you and the band all the very best for this new venture. I have no doubt in my mind that you will all be a huge success and BSR will become one of the biggest and most successful bands of all time. Take notice you so called ‘Super Bands’ because these guys from BSR are the real deal.

    All the very best Jimmy.
