RIP dude. Thin Lizzy is one of the most under-rated hard rock bands from the 1970s.

Not sure if it’s the case here but booze, drugs and cigarettes catch up to most people in their 40’s and 50's.

One of the world's greatest blues guitarists with a long solo career, in addition to years with Thin Lizzy. Check out "Still Got the Blues for You" on youtube if you don't know his work. Rest in peace.

This man played with such emotion and passion, he was a joy to watch and listen to. He was an inspiration to a league of guitar players. He will be missed.

'Lizzy' was an awesome band. Their mid-to-late-seventies radio hits were welcome relief from all the disco crap stinking up the radio airwaves of that era. RIP Gary and Phil.
