— Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin
in 1969. Their most successful songs are Whiskey in the Jar,
The Boys are Back in Town and Jailbreak. Thin Lizzy
are definitely “bad boys” and before frontman Phil Lynott’s
unfortunate early death, recorded 12 studio albums.

Thin Lizzy: Jailbreak
Full Album (Playlist)
This is classic rock at its finest.
The Daily Walk with Miracles, December 22, 2017. You can view this hour and eighteen minute playlist on secure YouTube at YouTube, or just watch it below. Thin Lizzy rocks! Photo of Thin Lizzy performing in 1983 is courtesy of Harry Potts and Flickr.
Also see Thin Lizzy waiting for an alibi (The Collection); Thin Lizzy – Live and Dangerous 1978; and Thin Lizzy – Lynott’s Last Stand: Final Tour 1983, where I comment, “This is just as good as anything Thin Lizzy ever did, really a great performance. In some of the song titles and lyrics, though, you can hear the effects of what drugs and booze were doing to Phil Lynott, how they affected his mind and perhaps sanity.” Guys and gals, it always works that way, always, I’m 60 and I have seen it hundreds of times. Get clean and get off the booze while you can.
Please visit the Haven of Rest Ministries organization’s homeless shelter in Akron, Ohio’s website. Did you know that $1.92 buys a homeless man or woman a meal? Did you know that there are 320,000 homeless veterans in America? Most of it, I think, is “post traumatic stress disorder,” but it is a shameful statistic. There are also a lot of homeless young people in their twenties, as well as older “has beens” or “never were’s.” Do you CARE? Can you help? Even $10 or $20 helps a LOT.
The daily Bible verse for March 4, 2015 (original publication date of this article), at The Official King James Bible Online is James 1:3 — "Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience." Read all of James Chapter 1.
This playlist is dedicated to my friend Dan Hershberger, who I must admit has really great taste in music, and helped me come to really appreciate Thin Lizzy and other really great classic rockers. Dan, I don’t get to spend time with you much any more, but you’re a really great friend. If you want to get in touch, please email me, or ask Paul and he’ll give you my phone number.
Wikipedia summarizes the hard rock group Thin Lizzy:
Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist and vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy’s most successful songs, “Whiskey in the Jar”, “Jailbreak” and “The Boys Are Back in Town”, were all major international hits which are still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott’s death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based initially around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. Gorham later continued with a new line-up including Downey.
Lynott, Thin Lizzy’s de facto leader, was composer or co-composer of almost all of the band’s songs, and the first black Irishman to achieve commercial success in the field of rock music. Thin Lizzy boasted some of the most critically acclaimed guitarists throughout their history, with Downey and Lynott as the rhythm section, on the drums and bass guitar. As well as being multiracial, the band drew their members not only from both sides of the Irish border but also from both the Catholic and Protestant communities during The Troubles. Their music reflects a wide range of influences, including blues, soul music, psychedelic rock, and traditional Irish folk music, but is generally classified as hard rock or sometimes heavy metal. Rolling Stone magazine describes the band as distinctly hard rock, “far apart from the braying mid-70s metal pack”.
