During a conversation with WBAB 102.3 radio station, Def Leppard’s Rick Allen talked about the band’s album ”Pyromania”.
He was asked if is true that late Thin Lizzy’s vocalist and bassist Phil Lynott told singer Joe Elliott that the reason Thin Lizzy broke up back in 1983 was that the former “couldn’t compete” with Def Leppard‘s then-recently released blockbuster album “Pyromania”.
About it, Allen replied:
“I’ve heard Joe tell that story, and I don’t know how serious Phil Lynott was. But if anybody knows anything about Def Leppard, they know that Thin Lizzy were a massive, massive influence on this band.
”So for Phil Lynott to say that, like I say, I hope he was joking, because they were a massive influence on Def Leppard.“
