    \m/ love this tune \m/

    rock and roll ain't pretty; that's why they picked us to play it.

    I bought Thunder & Lightning the day it was released because the local radio station had played this song. I loved the direction Thin Lizzy was heading with this.

     

    Pretty decent cover!

      this and emerald are probably my two favorite thin lizzy tunes.
      i didn’t get into them until around 1985-1986 (my senior year of high school).
      until then the only thing i really knew from them was the boys are back in town.
      and now that’s one of my least favorite tunes from them.
      and as i typed this do anything you want to popped in my head.
      one of those bands that were kind of under the radar like UFO.

    My route to Thin Lizzy is a bit strange… I was a big time comic book nerd in elementary school i n the 70s – Batman, Spider-man, Fantastic Four, The Avengers. Y’know, all the ones that are the rage now in theaters. I even read Luke Cage and Iron Fist back then and can’t believe Netflix has made them popular.

    Anyway, in 1980 I had a comic book with a full back cover advertisement for Chinatown by Thin Lizzy. I was big into KISS as well and ridiculed at junior high school, so I needed to branch out. I picked up Chinatown and really liked it… so I was on my way to being a metalhead. Then a friend introduced me to Tygers of Pan Tang featuring John Sykes (the Spellbound record).

    When Sykes joined Lizzy, I knew it would be a great record. It’s a shame that it was the last studio record.

    I found a teacher who would teach me songs I wanted to learn way back when and the first song I learned was Killer on the Loose.

    i was and still am a huge kiss fan.
    they were my musical gateway drug.
    it’s where it all began for me.
    luckily in my area there were a couple of older badass wrestler/football players who were also kiss fans and no one was about to ridicule them.
    i guess that made it safe for me to like ’em. \m/
    but there were the two camps – kiss or ac/dc – kinda like the randy and eddie camps.

    and yeah more thin lizzy with sykes would have been cool.
    but sykes in whitesnake was cool too.

    Awesome tight and focused cover!
    The tone is good too.

    Sorry, I was pretty sick the past month to get to this post early on
