Black Star Riders
THE KILLER INSTINCT
When Black Star Riders made their decision to record under a new name instead of as Thin Lizzy, it was met with a lot of opinions. For most, I would assume they were happy that they decided to move away from the name they had been touring under. For many, I'm sure there was a lot of apprehension about ruining the legacy, or at least dragging it through the mud if the new music wasn't good. For some, most likely record label people, they probably questioned the financial viability of starting over with a brand new name and distancing themselves from the humongous legacy that was and is Thin Lizzy. Regardless of which side of the argument you fall on, it's really hard to argue that what they've done has worked. THE KILLER INSTINCT picks right up where ALL HELL BREAKS UP left off.
