Biography

A short-lived punk/rock outfit assembled by Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott. The group’s roster was extremely fluid, and consisted of Phil Lynott, some of his Thin Lizzy bandmates, and an ever-changing roster of musicians including Rat Scabies of The Damned, Chris Spedding, Bob Geldof, and ex-Sex Pistols Steve Jones and Paul Cook.

More of a diversion than a serious attempt at creating a hybrid supergroup, the Greedies only played a handful of live shows and their recorded output was limited to a 1979 holiday single, a stomping rock medley of “Jingle Bells” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” titled A Merry Jingle. Lyrically, it’s a bit on the slight side, but Steve Jones milks that wonderful descending guitar riff (familiar to anyone who has bothered to listen to the post-John Lydon Sex Pistols material) for everything it’s worth.
