On the 40th anniversary of the seminal “Jailbreak” album and 30 years since the passing of Phil Lynott the only time Thin Lizzy will play the UK.
Much like my last rehearsal I noticed how they would spend what to some may seem an inordinate amount of time deciding if this drum lick should be 8ths or 16ths, or should this guitar solo extend over the chorus two times or four times. The meticulous work they put into each minute section of a song perfecting it is truly what sets them apart from other bands. I’m sure other groups use this same philosophy; however I’d say that it’s more of a rarity than a common practice.
With no support and a stage time of over two and a half hours, the show was nothing sort of glorious.
