Halestorm's Lzzy Hale fronts all-star virtual Thin Lizzy cover.

In recent months, rockers have been enjoying the possibilities of collaborating via virtual sessions, and that has continued with guitarist Phil Demmel gathering an all-star group to take on one of his favorite songs, Thin Lizzy's "Bad Reputation."
