Phil Lynott - Sadly Missed

Just read in the Classic Rock News site that today (20th August) would have been Phil Lynott's 6oth birthday.

I saw Thin Lizzy in concert at the Glasgow Apollo when I was a teenager. It was the Black Rosetour so it must have been 1979. Phil Lynott was a great bass player, a fantastic vocalist and an outstandingly good front man. It's hard to believe he died more than twenty years ago.

His early death was a tragedy but he left a musical legacy that still inspires and entertains.
