Mastodon’s Troy Sanders Will Fill In as the Bassist of Thin Lizzy This Summer

No one will ever replace Phil Lynott, but Troy Sanders will do a hell of a job.

This summer, Thin Lizzy will be playing a string of shows to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their seminal album Black Rose. Turns out Troy Sanders, bassist and vocalist for Mastodon, will be filling in on bass duties — and though no one could ever replace Phil Lynott, we think he’s the next best thing.

Troy comments,“It’s no secret that Thin Lizzy has had a big influence on Mastodon’s music. Being asked to join them on stage is a big deal and true honour to me. I am really looking forward to it!”

Guitarist Scott Gorham adds: “We are very happy to welcome Troy to the Lizzy family! We met a few years ago at the Download festival and he’s a great guy and killer bass player to boot, so very happy he wanted to join us for the shows this summer.”

Vocalist Ricky Warwick says: “Mastodon are a fantastic band and knowing how much of a Thin Lizzy fan Troy is, he will be an amazing addition to the fold.”

The current Thin Lizzy lineup now consists of Troy Sanders on bass, guitarist Damon Johnson, keyboardist Darren Wharton and Judas Priest drummer Scott Travis.
