    I love Thin Lizzy. I don't think the studio stuff ever captured their energy as well as live stuff did though - they were definitely a band that was more in their element live.

    I actually posted this story here a few weeks ago. Long story short: Lizzy was coming to town to open for REO Speedwagon, '77 or '78 timeframe. I was in 8th grade. Went to get my ticket, and somebody had drawn a cartoon bubble from Lynott's mouth that read "Come watch us blow REO off the stage." And...they did just that. REO played a 45 minute set, no encore.

    Now that's a rock band.
    Big fan here and big fan of Phil Lynott's solo work. Used to cover some of his tunes back in the '80s.

    I had one of Robbo''s guitars at home a while ago to do a small repair on, never really got on with Les Paul's but sat around playing it all day after I'd fixed it.
    I also played the one he has allegedly built for Mary Ford, a hollowed out Les Paul with P90''s.
    He's sat in with my band a few times and still plays great.

    More listeners are probably most familiar with the "Jail Break" album and the hits that it produced, but "Thunder and Lightening" is my favorite album by Thin Lizzy.

    Gone, but not forgotten!

    It wasn't a girl, it was a chick, but point taken. :)

    That just makes it scarier. Chicks hit harder than girls.

    I'd always been aware in the back of my mind that Thin Lizzy was much more important than Jailbreak and The Boys Are Back in Town would lead you to believe but never really listened to them much.

    This past year, I watched a movie with my eight year old son that featured the Cowboy Song, which he really liked. So we started chasing down Thin Lizzy songs and videos online, which was great - they have a great sound and from what we found a ton of great songs. I've played a lot of music for/with him but that was one that I felt like we were discovering together, sort of a unique experience!

    (Eddie the Eagle was the movie.)
