So Thin Lizzy anyone? I love them, they're my favourite band of all time. I have the albums: Geatest Hits, Live and Dangerous, Whiskey In The Jar and Still Dangerous. Hoping to get more when I get the cash. Anybody else a Thin Lizzy Fan? (lolucwutididthar?)

Yes I am, although I ahve thier songs not albums unforunately. Boys are back is great, as is Jailbreak, but i think the standout for me is probably emerald, i love that song, so wild.

Emerald and Black Rose and Cold Sweat are my favorite.

One of the most talented, exciting, wild and proud-to-be-Irish bands ever!! (Even though the celebrated line-up had an American and Scot in it, but they're still Irish) Phil Lynott is the epitome of rock n roll, and one of the best vocalists in hard rock. PERIOD!
Jailbreak is one of the best albums of the seventies

When I was younger I never paid them much attention. I thought the "boys are back" was indicative of the music they did. Then I saw a concert of them on VH1 classic and got hooked. They have such a great groove. Their riffs aren't super hard to play, but man keeping the right rythm can be tough.

Yeah "The Boys Are Back" is pretty much their only fully known song except for maybe "Jailbreak" but tbh thats my least favourite song by them.

Incredible INCREDIBLE band!!! I absolutely love their twin lead guitars and their riffs and Phil, god everything about them rocks! My favorite song right now is probably dancing in the moonlight. I also love the drums in bad reputation and The Rocker has to have one of the greatest solos ever recorded.

They had some amazing guitar players. Live and Dangerous is a stone cold classic. Any band with two guitars should give them a serious listen. And...the songs! All that soloing wouldn't have meant as much unless there weren't great tunes.
Cowboy Song may be the best song EVER!

Thin Lizzy is definately one of my favourite bands. I have all their albums and a lot of live DVDs as well. If I recall correctly, Thin Lizzy was actually the band that got me into classic rock at all, so I guess I owe them I also thoroughly enjoy AC/DC and The Who, but Thin Lizzy will always be a bit more special to me.

I can't drive anywhere more than an hour away without playing some Thin Lizzy.

It's just not possible. Live and Dangerous is my favorite. Though it kinda starts to drag a bit after "Cowboy Song."

I'm interested in the new live album cuz apparently it's actually, you know, live.

its kind of amazing how heavy they were so early on, I consider them the heaviest band of the 70s

my favorite song is "running back to you" or its just called "runnin back" ive seen it as both lol, but its one of their softer ones, but its really ****in catchy

They were versatile.

They could blow yer mind with riffage and then take it down and do some pop.

They have tunes for all occasions.

Thin Lizzy are the single greatest most epic band in the history of the universe. Bar none. All of their songs are the best songs ever and nothing can ever beat them. That's how effing good they are.

One of my favorite bands.

Black Rose, Wild One, Cold Sweat, Bad Reputation... so many good tunes.

Probably one of the most underatted bands relative to their talent and song writting.

Lizzy were a phenomenal live band and, in Phil Lynott, had one of the best frontmen. I always thought that they were better live than on vinyl although they managed to put out some great records. Black Rose (with Gary Moore) is great as is most of the stuff from Brian Robertson's days.

Bad move. SD is wonderful.

Anyway, has anyone seen the Phil Lynott documentary?
