    My (very) old band used to do a lot of Thin Lizzy. Here's bad video of us doing Suicide back in 1989.http://youtu.be/7oekTdchVPc I'm a huge Thin Lizzy fan and I like what I hear so far.

    Saw them a few times in the late seventies in Pgh, Pa.
    Phil Lynott was a heck of a bassist/frontman.

    Regardless of who is in it, this is great rock and roll and I want to hear more.
  7. They sound pretty damn tight. But....... (There's always one of those when it comes to "replacing" a true original, isn't there?). But, I really didn't realize until I watched the clip just how much presence, and charisma Phil Lynott had in the band. Dude nails the vocals, big time. It's just too damn bad that he doesn't play bass, too. It would've really helped that much more with the "vibe" of the band, if that makes any sense. I'm glad they're back, but I REALLY, REALLY think their songwriting will suffer immensely without Phil. I really do think he was one of the more prolific songwriters in rock. He told stories in his songs like no one else.
