Thunder and Lightning is the twelfth and final studio album by Irish hard rock band Thin Lizzy, released in 1983. Guitarist John Sykes was hired to replace Snowy White after 1981's Renegade, and Sykes helped to provide a heavier sound and guitar tone than Thin Lizzy had used on previous albums. However, the bulk of the songwriting (except for "Cold Sweat") was completed before he joined the band.
Thin Lizzy - Thunder And Lightning (1983).
Thin Lizzy's last studio album, with John Sykes on lead guitar (replacing Snowy White).
Thin Lizzy's final studio release, Thunder and Lightning, was their most consistent album since 1979's Black Rose. Guitarist John Sykes replaced Snowy White, and the new blood must have inspired Lynott and company to write some of their best compositions in years. Although a pop-metal production hinders the tracks, there's more of a harder edge present than on their last release, Renegade.
Thunder And Lightning was the final studio album to be released by Irish rock band Thin Lizzy in 1983. It was the follow up to the 1981 LP Renegade, a record that sold modestly and that had prompted a line up change at the end of the supporting tour. Guitarist Snowy White left, mainly as a consequence of the lack of clarity as to whether recording sessions were for Thin Lizzy records, or for Phil Lynott’s solo work. His argument was that if he was recording on the later that he should be paid as a session musician.
