First Rock band to make it internationally, plus a black man from Ireland doing anything was novel

I don’t think that really happens
Please tell me, have you ever read the published flatulence of Messrs. Dawkins or Hitchens?

I'd love to read more about your original views on the matter.

RIP. Her boy had an amazing grasp of that bass guitar. Back when hands on musical ability was almost a prerequisite? Before you even opened your goddamned mouth

Which of course he did too in becoming this iconic rock frontman. Adapted well to white culture, of course now it’s the opposite but yeah RIP.

He was that good, and died early.

Thin Lizzy were brilliant at their peak, but Phil's career had stalled by the 80s. It didn't help that rock went out of fashion for a while and the charts were totally dominated by pop.

Thin lizzy were a lot better than the boomtown rats, I wasn't even born during their heyday but I'd listen to several of their hits, plus old town is a great tune

I disagree . It's better to know the full truth.
I didn't really know of this woman so this thread is fascinating to me to see the different stories good and the no so good.

Well, she may have had conflicting feelings. I recently read an interview with John Bowman where he talked about how much he missed his son but that he still sometimes feels cross at him for leaving himself so vulnerable that he died needlessly. Emotions are messy.

Maybe it was because he was a far superior musician to Phil.
Jealousy can be a cruel bedfellow.

May she rest in peace.
Charges of envy tend to be inane at the best of times. And the above isn’t the best of times...

I don’t think rock went out so much as older acts in trying to adapt truly embarrassing themselves. My recommendation to most of the rock ‘dinosaurs’ would have been take it easy, don’t try to remain relevant just enjoy your 40s and come back in the 90s when the new wave craze has died down and you have more value as vintage act. But they just couldn’t do it and so much cheese ensued

RIP Philomena

Apologies for going slightly off-topic, but...is it pronounced Lie-nott or Lin-nott (Lin rhyming with gin)?

Heard both variations across the radio today.
