Phil Lynott - Old Town

Thin Lizzy, led by the late Phil Lynott, was one of those groups I knew about because of "The Boys Are Back in Town" and of course later because of Metallica's cover of "Whiskey in the Jar" but I had never dived into their discography (13 albums! Not including a whole bunch of bootlegs etc) or Phil's solo work. A few months ago I don't know how I stumbled across the song the video for "Old Town".

Machine Gun Camera

So, Summer's almost over and it's time to get back on track with all pending projects.

Hoping to have it out early October.
