    Anyway, YouTube appears to be borked on my tablet so I'll just say: Waiting for an Alibi. The best blend of metal with pop sensibilities ever. Ever. Best live. End.
     

  3. One of his best songs i reckon.

    Probably. Midge and Phil were good friends and wrote songs together.
    Midge was actually the first choice for singer of the sex pistols but he turned it down.

    When I was a kid I used to worry about what Leslie Crowther made of all this.

    Anytime the price is right was on, my dad would comment on how big a racist Crowther was over his attitude to Philo.

    I just realised that the pub featured in the Old Town video is The Long Hall, great little place for afternoon drinks.

    A nostalgic look back at Phil Lynott's wedding:

    BONUS NSFW PIC: the celtic warrior in this piece of 1970s Jim Fitzpatrick fantasy art must have been modelled on Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham, it's the spit of him:

    Saw Thin Lizzy and The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and in my opinion Alex Harvey was a better act but seeing Lizzy do Still in love with you on the live and dangerous tour was something else.
    Lizzy were ridiculously loud and the sound was reverberated off the back wall in Sheffield City hall and spoiled it to some extent. Plus Lynott blinding the audience with the mirrored bass got tiresome very quickly.
    I suppose by this time I was over the rock thing and was seeing it as yesterday's thing.

    SAHB were fucking awesome live, but Lizzy just edged it for me. Both brilliant acts though.

    Is Harvey still famous in Scotland the way Philo is still famous in Ireland?

    Alex Harvey died some years ago when be was in his late 40s :(

    However I did see an article couple of years or so ago about a statue of him that's been put up somewhere in Glasgow.
