Thin Lizzy were the archetypal twin-Les Paul band, and Gorham was the only guitar constant.
Next to the aggressive styles of partners Brian Robertson, Gary Moore and John Sykes, Gorham had a smooth, lyrical, almost laid-back style. He switched from a Les Paul Deluxe (with mini-humbuckers) to a refinished wine-red ’57.
In recent years, he’s switched to Fender Strats. Gorham admits: “the Les Paul is a great guitar - looks great, sounds great, but it's so fucking heavy. It's like wheeling along a bag of cement!”
Tough, Scott. Thin Lizzy’s Live And Dangerous album = a bag worth hauling.
