who passed away following a heroin overdose in 1986, he
was only 36. After his death, the band continued to play live, but
didn’t produce new music.

Albums: 12 (between 1971 and 1983)

Melody Maker (the iconic British weekly) wrote back then: “This LP is
more subtlety, the melodies are stronger, and, most importantly, the scope
of the material is much wider than the hard rock associated with Lizzy”,
showing a band more versatile than on the previous recording.”
