In 1969 Eric Bell walked into a bar in Dublin, ordered a pint and
settled down to watch a band play. Two of the members of that
band were Brian Downey and Phil Lynott. He was knocked out
by what he saw and heard and asked them to form a band with
him. Both duly obliged and within weeks Thin Lizzy was born.
The three of them worked very hard both in the studio and on
the road and were eventually rewarded with a hit single, the
anthemic - Whiskey In The Jar - which catapulted them into
world wide recognition. Their new found popularity kept them
very busy. There was a lot of pressure, both touring and
recording and eventually Eric conceded that, health wise it was
a bit too much for him to handle and left the band.
Noel Redding, bass player to Jimi Hendrix, befriended Eric and
they were soon recording and touring together through Europe
and America.
In the late seventies Bo Diddley came to the UK to tour and
asked Eric, who else, to play guitar with him.
Eric eventually decided to forge a solo career, playing in his
favourite 3 piece format and has over the years recorded a host
of albums both live and studio and most recently has recorded
two highly acclaimed albums, Exile and Standing At A Bus
Stop. Both albums contain songs that have been laying dormant
for a number of years and have now been given a well deserved
airing.
2019 is the 50th anniversary of Thin Lizzy and Eric will
celebrate this landmark the way he likes best, playing live in as
many towns and cities as possible.
He brings with him two musicians who are also no slouches
when it comes to recording and touring; Dave Wintour on bass
and Romek Parol on drums, who, between them, have a client
list that looks like a who';s who of the rock'n'roll world.
Eric will work his way through a playlist of songs that takes him
from early days and influences, through his "Lizzy" days,
through his back catalogue and right up to the present day.

The evening will be full of surprises as no two nights are ever
the same ....

Eric Bell -The 50th Anniversary Tour

  • Eric Bell Band

    Eric Bell Band

    Classic Rock

    Eric Bell was the founding guitarist of THIN LIZZY, one of Ireland’s greatest ever Rock bands. He began his musical career playing with local groups around the Belfast area of his birth. These included Van Morrison and Them, followed by a host of Irish showbands.

    He met Philip Lynott, and drummer Brian Downey in Dublin in 1969 and they immediately hit it off, forming a band that became Thin Lizzy. They were named by Eric after a robot strip cartoon character, ‘Tin Lizzy’ in The Dandy.

    The band’s first massive hit was ‘Whiskey in the Jar’ with Eric’s distinctive guitar work which he has turned into his own special anthem. It was the number one single in Ireland for several weeks and stayed in the UK top 100 for almost a year. ‘The Rocker’ was a second big hit and is still hugely popular at Eric’s live gigs.

    Eric stayed with the band until 1973, during which time they recorded and released their first three albums: Thin Lizzy, Shades of a Blue Orphanage, and Vagabonds of the Western World. On each of them, Eric’s guitar-work is stunning, his vocals striking, and he co-wrote many of the songs. He was replaced by his friend, Gary Moore.
