    Workingmans’ Blue… Phil was rode hard and put up wet, and it shows. I wish he had better help

    Robert Smith was also a big fan of John Martyn.
    This cover of 'Small Hours' is great.

    Alex Harvey and his Sensational band, were very influential in the UK in the early/mid 70's.

    This is one of the first riffs I ever learned...:p

    I'd say the only person who should dNOT like Thin Lizzy is Bob Geldof.

    One of my favourite guitar solos is in Bad Reputation.
