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.
FWIW, an after market esoteric nut is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and a great way to convert your money into someone else’s.

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.

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.
PS: why not seem em' now? They probably kick serious ass.

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.
