  • HBD Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy)

    He would have been 64 today (the 20th).

    and, of course... (live in 1983)

        Easily the most overlooked band ever, who produced a great bunch of durable, straight produced tunes. Sort of the missing link between Springsteen & Maiden, ... I HIGHLY recommend the Live & Dangerous DVD.

          For anyone that isn't so much into their hard rock stuff (or is and wants to delve further) the Self-Titled and Vagabonds of the Western World are great albums.

            Every era Lizzy had greatness in spades. I love Phil, I remember exactly where I was when I found out he died. Bah what a waste, it drives me nuts when I think about it. He was everything a Rock Star should be and unfortunately a couple of things they shouldn't and it killed him.

            Great player, great singer, great songwriter and a great band leader. He was the whole package.

            This is from the Toronto Lizzy Fest a few years ago, Danko is a huge fan.

                One of my favorite frontmen and definitely one of the best.

                Happy birthday, sir.
