In 2012, after touring the world successfully as the last incarnation of the legendary Thin Lizzy, the group of veteran rockers made a bold, and some might say risky, decision.

Catching up with The Ghosts of Laura Palmer

Published April 2, 2015

As a Milwaukee-based DJ himself, Mario Martin - known by his stage name The Ghosts of Laura Palmer - has no problem with Paris Hilton performing at Summerfest in a few months.
