Brian Downey on drums needs no introduction……Hailing originally from Dublin, Brian enjoyed his first taste of success in Ireland with the top 20 hit ‘Morning Dew’ before forming ‘Orphanage with Phil Lynott. The two went on to form the legendary Thin Lizzy with Eric Bell and Brian remained a constant member until the band split in 1983.

Having worked on Phil Lynott’s solo albums and the subsequent Grand Slam project. Brian relocated back to Dublin around the time of Phil’s untimely death on January 4th 1986. Brian remained in constant demand as both a touring and session drummer and regularly played live shows and recorded with renowned guitarist Gary Moore.Brian is often cited as being an influence by many of the world’s top drummers and feels invigorated to be playing the songs he co-wrote in Thin Lizzy with his new band ALIVE AND DANGEROUS.

In these days where everybody seems to want to show off at every given occasion, Don Airey is without a doubt “One of A Kind”. It is hard to find a name among all those that over the last 30 years have left their mark in the history of rock that has not utilised Don’s keyboard skills at some point. Among them are Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Judas Priest, Gary Moore, Brian May, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath and, obviously, Deep Purple, the band of which Don Airey has been a full time member for over fifteen years.But – Don Airey has never been a session player. Bands and artists work with him for his unique musical vision, for the twist he gives to songs. It is with the same passion, the same energy, the same talent that Don Airey approaches his very own songwriting.
