Thin Lizzy’s legacy will be milked some more

Apparently Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott hid some tapes in the 80s, before his death. Well, it’s not like someone is gonna try to make money off them 25 years later now, is it?

Twenty six years after the Dublin rocker’s death at the age of 36, more of his lost music will be heard by the public for the first time in June. Shortly before he passed away in 1986, Mr Lynott gave 150 tapes to a third party for safekeeping. The cache of up to 700 songs has finally been released to record company Universal Music.

Oh, my bad, it’s 26 years and yes, of course someone will milk the name Thin Lizzy some more.

Don’t get me wrong, more Thin Lizzy for us? That’s not bad news, sure beats waiting for Stone Sour‘s album. Sure beats waiting for Thin Lizzy‘s non-Lynott album, too.


Thin Lizzy’s Hellfest performance is here

Almost an hour of Thin Lizzy live goodness is available in that clip above. Isn’t it nice?

I wanted to write a pun about ‘whiskey in the jar’ but couldn’t really think of any. My first idea was ‘pour me some whiskey in an hd jar,’ so you can just tell how pathetic I am. With a matching sense of humor, I should add.

Anyway, not much else to say, really. Watch it if you want. Or don’t. You’re not my fucking nephew. I don’t care what you do.


Thin Lizzy might return to the studio

Legendary band Thin Lizzy are considering recording a new album. Problem is, they haven’t released anything since 1983.

That’s the No. 1 question we’re getting from people — are we gonna record some new material? The fans seem to trust this lineup, and I don’t blame them. We’ve kind of jumped this emotional hurdle together. Ricky’s writing some fucking killer lyrics, and with the kind of talent that’s in Thin Lizzy now I think we can pull off a really cool set of tunes said Scott Gorham.

Sounds like Thin Lizzy is quite a talented band nowadays, huh? Not that Scott is biased or anything. Don’t get me wrong, if they want to record a new album, they should do it. I hope they know they don’t use phonographs anymore though.

When asked if he knows what Pro Tools is, Scott said “Sure, I know how to use hammers and wrenches.”
