Indeed so, but I'll take L&D over Black Rose any day.

Of all the GM stuff.What I dig the most is the trio era stuff after Eric Bell split.Where they were really gettin into their Irish groove.Didn't know he was on Johnny The Fox though

Oh yeah ,my least favorite lineup was the one with the guy from Ultravox.I saw that one in Cleveland in '79 .The World Series Of Rock.One of the weirdest concerts I've ever been to,a guy allegedly on acid jumped in the lake fully clothed,the cops nearly started a race riot,and Phil Lynott.What more do you want?

I saw the Snowy White lineup in Iowa maybe a year later.I heard Snowy was fired after making foul comments about the death of John Lennon in front of Phil

I actually think Chinatown is one of their best sounding records.Some great tone on there IMO

moore loved lizzy but coudn't take their outta control drug use.(he was offered the slot in ozzy's band before and after rr, he declined the first time because of ozzy's drug use and after rr's death he couldn't do it as he was too shattered as he and rr were friends ) it's really sad that friggin drugs took phil's life and robbed us of great music.

I like the slow version of "don't believe a word", from Back On the Streets...nice solo ....

I agree totally with the anti drug message, but word here is that Gaz was as bad or worse than the rest back in those days...

Might have been a question of degree - or variety. Some don't mix in a social situation...

The new record I been workin on has a subliminal/or not tribute to Phil in there.
My label guy ,a pretty rigid blues fan,said he thought the tune was a bit "too Spinal Tap" for his tastes.I said "Good,ship the s!@#$!"

I tried to time record deal/recording with the tour schedule of John Sykes Thin Lizzy because I really wanted to solicit Scott Gorham to play the solo on this song but it didn't work out,so I just had to do it.

Phil Lynott visited me in my sleep about 4 or 5 years ago when I was goin through another record label hell and gave me words of encouragement.Haven't seen him since

I told my new label guy were gonna start covering Big Bottom on our live gigs

Of all those players, I like Moore followed by Sykes the most as individuals. But I think Gorham/Robertson were the best 'team' in that the whole was greater than the sum of it's parts.

From what I've read, '59 has it right in that Moore never did like all that drug use. I didn't know the part about Ozzy though (I was a HUGE RR fan, but for his playing and not his tone).

my 2 cents, i saw the 78 thin lizzy(with ac/dc-dictators) tour at the uptown in kc..

it was moore-gorham-lynott and lizzy had to use a replacement drummer..

the sound was a washed out echoed mess and gary overplayed ,imo...

plus the fact both openers had great sound..

i knew ac/dc were onto something here,this was the 'powerage' tour..

the saddest thing for me was watching phil lynott become very distressed at the lack of audience appreciation as fans left the building!

all because of a horrible sound mix,imo!!

i wanted to clobber the damn sound crew..

how could ac/dc and the dictators have a powerful mix with clarity and thin lizzy the headlining band not have a proper mix?

sadly, that is the last time i saw phil lynott :(

Of course it's Gorham and Robertson. The solos on "Cowboy Song" alone win me over. Also "Romeo and Juliet" or whatever it's called.
I wass a little disappointed that on Live and Dangerous they don't do the "Cowboy" solos exactly like the record. I mean, I know all about the desire to improvise, but the record versions are so damn melodic...

Gorham/Robertson - hands down.

I like Eric Bell, too!
