WHO Poll
Q: 2022/23 You are the Chairman what do you do with Moyes?
a. Stick with him obviously, he's delivered two good seasons back to back and will see us out of this dip in form
b. If we're still lingering around the bottom three by the start of the WC then that's the time to get rid
c. What are we waiting for 2 wins in the last 20 PL games is reason enough to sack him, go now
d. I've just got my new Orange & White 3rd Kit with Moyesinho on the back, I can't wait to wear it down to the supermarket, they call me Mr West Ham around here

Phil Lynott from the stage:

"Any of you girls got any Irish in you?"

Girls waving & screaming"Yeah"

"Any of you want a little bit more?"

A very mediaeval town.

Loads of one- and two-man lock-ups all over the place.

A bit like the tower on Everton's badge.

Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak / Somewhere in this town

If only we knew where!

Re: Thin Lizzy
Phil Lynott's mum was called Philomena. Not very interesting fact.

Jailbreak is a fucking tune. This is a fact also.

Re: Thin Lizzy
Lynott's best under the radar track.
Spoken word thing about punk/new wave.
Drums and bass are excellent.

Good word rhythm as others have mentioned.

That's it mate. I think it was on the Run for Cover tour I think. FM in support. Was a great gig was lucky to get down the front.

Some bird jumped over the bouncers to get on stage and give Phil a rose.

Great gig.

Re: Thin Lizzy
Love them. What a band. Never got to see them live, but did get too see Phil on stage with Gary More, doing Parisian Walkways at Hammy Odeon.


Was that 1985 when they did Military Man and Out In The Fields as well? I was there and as far as I know, that was the last time Phil Lynott performed on stage.

Large numbers of Iron Maiden at that gig. Couldn't move in the Duke of Cornwall for various IMs. :)

Just love the way he sings and phrases that.

Lovely song. Lovely solo as well

Re: Thin Lizzy
Recall Billy Connolly doing a bit on Phil Lynotts
in one of his walk around UK documentaries he use to do and visiting his grave side and talking to his Mum who said she visited the grave everyday and always told him off for dying to young.

Re: Thin Lizzy
The vulture sits on top of the big top circus arena
He's seen the show before, knows someone's going to fall
Just near the part where the beautiful dancing tightrope ballerina
Forgets that the safety net isn't there at all
Down he swoops with claws drawn to take her
Razor sharp so savagely is she mauled
Oh my god, is there no one who can save her?
In steps the fox to thunderous applause

Re: Thin Lizzy
I loved them despite that my young punk self should have hated them.
Phil Lynott's lyrics are superb in that he monkeys around with timing and rhythm of the words as it suits. Very un-rock.
Only saw them once live and that was the last gig of the Thunder and Lightning tour at Hammersmith when they rolled most of the ex-guitarists out (Robbo was my favourite). They were great and not shy of making a glorious racket.

Emerald is my favourite.

A fantastic song writer how he managed to get get all his lines into the rythym. Absolute genius. A rock n roll romantic.

Stella band much missed, I liked all the line ups as it always about Phil.

Limehouse Lizzy do a good tribute to them.

Hard to choose a favorite song amongst so many classics, but the Cowboy Song and Fools Gold get played a lot on my Spotify..

I am just a cowboy lonesome on the trail
A starry night the campfire light
The coyote call
And the howling winds wail
So I'll ride out to the old sundown

Re: Thin Lizzy

It also has the ill-thought out line "tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak... somewhere in this town".


Iron Duke 9:33 Thu Nov 18
Re: Thin Lizzy
Jailbreak also contains the worst ever chat up line:

Hey you, good looking female, come here.

It probably worked for Phil though, the bastard.

Re: Thin Lizzy
I’ve got into them more over the last five years or so. Radio stations would normally only play Boys are back in town or whiskey in the jar. I listen to Planet Rock quite a bit and they’ve got some great tunes - my favourites are Roisin Dubh, The Rocker and Jailbreak. Phil Lynott was also one of the great frontmen, and a decent bassist.

Re: Thin Lizzy
There's a great show on YouTube - An evening with Gary Moore and Friends.
The Whisky version with Eric Bell is fantastic.

Re: Thin Lizzy
My fave band , as Ray Winstone said Still in love with you off Live and dangerous is a classic . They done a gig at Bisley pavilion once . Renegade is a good track ,but I could mention LOADS . I heard that when Lynotts girlfriend found him dying she drove him MILES to a hospital as opposed to round the corner which may have cost his life . Vagabonds of the western world was one of their first albums ,very raw as a three piece then . Eric Bell got a band together which once or twice played at a pub just outside Farnham . Gary Moore done a bit with them , found his grave at a church in Rottingdean . Sorry, rather a disjointed post . Had all their albums on vinyl but stuck em in a bin in a post divorce breakdown . In summary ,IMO , one of the best bands ever . As said Lesley Crowther was an upset bunny his daughter hitched with him . The Rocker was another great track .

Re: Thin Lizzy
They came to see us play, in a pub in Ipswich. Stayed all evening and gave us comps and back stage passes, for their concert, the following night. They were an ok bunch.

Re: Thin Lizzy
They got two lead guitarists because they lost one when they were about to go on tour. Midge ure was taken to the states to make sure they had cover

Re: Thin Lizzy
I saw them at Reading Festival in 1977. They were the headliners for the second night. John Peel (RIP) was keeping the crowd amused with leading everybody in the chant "John Peel's a cunt!"

They were in fine form that night and their stage presence was second to none.

Later I heard that Phil Lynott married Caroline Crowther the daughter of Leslie Crowther of Crackerjack fame. Daddy did not approve of this union. He died in Salisbury Infirmary, my home town hospital.
