    Quite a distinctive voice.

    Thank you, Phil Lynott.

    Thank you.

  3. He's still much loved in Dublin(his hometown). Every year Slattery's holds the "Vibe for Philo" were a whole bunch of local bands get together and play some TL tunes and generally just celebrate the man. (At least they still were 5 years ago.)

    Yeah, they still do the annual Vibes for Philo. Phil's mom generally attends and loves meeting fans. I need to get over there one day.

    when i went to Dublin i had the chance to visit his tomb.

    a great bass player and singer and even greater songwriter.
  7. A pint of ale for Phil, an excellent songwriter,and always the perfect melodic bass player, Sometimes we lose sight of the song for the sake of flash,Less wanking is a good thing,Think about how often you here a lizzy song,, good songs last forever. Don't mean to preach. Cheers to Phil and all the GREAT axemen he worked with.

    Philip was a true artist..........A masterful bassist with an ear for the tune at all times.
    A poet with a control of the English language that many envied.
    An Irish legend....a Rock'n'Roller...a Renegade.

    God Bless you,Philip.
