"One Hell of a Concert" "When Thin Lizzy played at the Opera House, even the bridge shook" Steve Britton
The melodic hard rock of Thin Lizzy, with its striking powerchords and r&b underpinning, was pivoted around the irresistible stage charisma of bassist and songwriter Phil Lynott, who was one described as an Ugly Marc Bolan (he also wrote books of poetry!). Lynott helped launch the careers of Gary Moore and Snowy White, who both pursued solo careers after departing Lizzy's ranks. His death robbed rock of one of its most valuable practitioners.
