MUSIC: THIN LIZZY Carling Academy, Glasgow, January 28 #####.

Byline: PHIL DIFFER

It would be understandable if this line-up suffered an identity crisis. Former axeman John Sykes and bass player Marco Mendoza have both done shifts in Whitesnake, so wasn't sure whether we were going to get Thinsnake or Whitelizzy. What we were served up, though, was 100 per cent pure Liz and the fans, both young and old, lapped it up.

The oldest survivor in the band, Scott Gorham, looked exactly that. No one pulls a better facial contortion in the throws of a seering guitar solo. But can it really be Thin Lizzy without Phil Lynott? No, but this manifestation comes close to capturing the spirit of the band in its heyday. The boys, well, men, were definitely back in town.
