I love Thin Lizzy but I don't know if I'd see them nowadays. Phil Lynnot was, in my opinion, the greatest frontman in the history of rock and playing without him just seems weird.

Yet another chat thread??? Seems to be an over abundance of them these days. I know we all enjoy taking sh** about AX7, but seriously, these guys are laughing all the way to the bank.

saw lizzy in december in dublin ,of course its not the same ,the current line up dont claim anything other than enjoying playing ,and who are we to begrudge these guys a living ? and i tell you ,once you hear those blistering solos live ,you will be delighted you saw a little bit of lizzy live ,in your lifetime ,and can only feel heavyhearted for the loss of philo ,and only imagine what they must have been live in the 70s and 80s
