Love Thin Lizzy.
"Borderline" is one of the most gorgeous rock n roll ballads going.
And they ROCK as well.
Phil Lynott rules!!!!!!!!!!!

My dad played a song by them last night called "Cowboy Song"...I rather liked that one. I haven't heard a ton of these guys' songs, but I do like the few I have heard. I like the way the guy sang them.

Yeah you gotta love Thin Lizzy.

Just some classic ballsy rock, shame they didn't catch on in North America save for one single.

"Get Out Of Here", "Toughest Street In Town", "Jailbreak", all good stuff. I'm still just getting into em.

dancing in the moonlight....good stuff.....yeah.
lizzy never made it very very big in the u.s., but they influenced a lot of 80s hard/glam rock bands.

Just discovered them a few years ago, which is sad because I've been around for a while. I used to be a huge Iron Maiden fan and it's very clear to me that much of their sound was inspired by Thin Lizzy.

These guys never get enough respect, and are known primarily for one song--Boys are Back in Town, which isn't necessarily representative of their style and song.

Running Back, Romeo and the Lonely Girl, Cowboy song. Jailbreak is just a great record. I also love Fighting, Bad Reputation, Johnny the Fox, Black Rose, and the live album which has an AMAZING version of Dancin' in the Moonlight.

Phil Lynott just has one of the all-time great rock voices. It's a crime that these guys aren't in the R&R Hall of Fame.

i adore THIN LIZZY...they stay immortal...they were a substantial part of my teenage years...their music is rocking soulful and sexy.
i love the early 70s' period. great songs like BUFFALO GIRL, HERE I GO AGAIN, DUBLIN, SHADES OF A BLUE ORPHANAGE are pearls.
i always liked the fact that Phil Lynnot used his bass playing like a guitar. he set a new benchmark for lead-bass-play. today you can hear this sort of bassplay from Flea / RHCP. THIN LIZZY REMAINS A LEGEND...they were underestimated sometime but definitely they were true ROCKERS despite of some soulful sexy ballads
