It's a cold snowy Friday evening here in Arctic Britain and I've had a tough day on the roads of Englandshire so what better to warm the cockles
than a storming performance by the one and only Thin Lizzy filmed on the 1983 Thunder and Lightning tour.
Join me and raise a glass to Phil Lynott and the boys.
While I didn’t get to see this tour (was stationed on Okinawa 82-85) I did see their Jailbreak tour...in fact, that was my first live concert. I
do, however, listen to the Thunder and Lightning studio album almost weekly. It’s even downloaded on my watch for easy, non-bufferred, listening.
The Sun Goes Down and The Holy War are pure poetry...
My absolute favorite band!!
My only regret, if you can call it that - since it wasn't my choise, is that I never got to see them Live (I was born in the autumn as Lizzy was doing
the final shows). But having an Irishman as neighbor ment I was spoon fed Thin Lizzy growing up (many years later he also gave me my taste for a pint
o' Guinness at the end of the day too).
Phil was a brilliant lyricist/songwriter, who was taken away to early.
I'm so happy for YouTube and people with connections who keeps uploading unreleased material keeping Phil's flame burning and his/Lizzy's music alive
for more to find and enjoy/love.
