Scottish guitarist who played with Thin Lizzy and Motorhead.
He grew up with formal musical training on the cello and piano, then was inspired by the rock 'n' roll scene.
His classic guitar riffs propelled Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back In Town" to the top of the charts.
He grew up around Glasgow, Scotland.
His polished image did not fit with Pete Gill and Motorhead, so Robertson left that group after just one album.
