Thin Lizzy

Post by Westbone on Thu Dec 06, 2012 4:39 pm

For the first time in years went to see Thin Lizzy at a gig last friday.

Cliffs Pavillion, Southend on Sea, UK

What a great night.

Scott Gorham, Brian Downey, Marco Mendoza, Ricky Warwick(vocals) Damon Johnson.

All top musicians. Really good night.

The place was pounding. Good venue.

Saw them a couple of times in the seventies when Brian Robertson was there.

They were a great band back then.

Nice to hear that they can still cut it!!

Was also a bit apprehensive of them without Phil Lynott.

But Ricky Warwick, who happens to be an Irishman handled the vocals extremely well.

He was a member of a band from up your way hoax, The Almighty.

Saw them supporting G'n'R earlier this year. They did well over an hour of classic songs and none of the 'here's one off our new album' nonsense. Ricky Warwick did a great job without trying to sound like a Phil Lynott karaoke act. Just what the crowd needed what with Axl Rose playing the fanny and not getting on stage until after 10:30pm.

Thin Lizzy...
man, oh man oh man.... The sheer directness of the music tore through my speakers and ignited my heart way back when.
Inspiring,flawed,inconsistant and sincere...they were OURS and will always be.
I hope Phil and Gary are up in Heaven, high five-ing and having fun. They gave us some of the best times in our lives, and I ,for one, am grateful.

I had no idea they were at the Cliff's! That is such a great venue - the sound is always spot on and there are often surprisingly high profile bands there. I saw Level 42 there a couple of weeks back.

I had the greatest of pleasure seeing Thin Lizzy when they played at Wembley in 1977 - the tour that was recorded for the Live and Dangerous album. I was at Uni in London at the time and squandered a decent % of my grant watching as many live bands as I could back then. Accounts for my current hearing loss, I'd say.

I have an abiding memory of Brian Robertson from that night dressed in white, with his deathly pale skin tone, spotlit from above during the solo in 'Still In Love With You' - truly spectral. And Phil Lynott would probably rank as having THE most charismatic stage presence I have ever witnessed.
