Its a metaphorical jailbreak FFS. So, no.
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.
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.
Met Phil Cockout
Saw em with Alex Harvey as suppost
The Sensational Alex Harvey Band played em off the stage
Left before "Thin Drug feind put my wife in hospital by beating her" left the stage
They were dull as fuck after Alex
I've seen Alex Harvey and Thin Lizzy several times live. Both great acts
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.
God, I don't think I've been in the Long Hall in twenty years.
It hasn't changed except for the big NO FUCKIN GIFS sign behind the bar.
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:

Not to mention the iconic Che poster...
And my body.
I believe you.
Thousands wouldn't, though.
Saw them a few times too. Great shows.
tonight there's going to be a jailbreak.. somewhere in this town..
the jail maybe?
sorry couldn't resist
Shouldn't this be in the hippy wankering forum?
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.
Hey editor, I just found this on youtube:
You'll want to give this one a spin, believe me.
Let it fucking rock:
Amen to that bro...
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.
Love this ....
Brilliant intro....to a feckin fantastic version of what is a trad ballad.
Memories of it as a kid on holidays with my 8 cousins in Palmerstown in Dublin...brings me right back when I hear it.
Lizzy's debut single.
Creem interview with Lizzy from the '70s - and it's very '70s:
