Here is my first band of the week feature. This week's band is Thin Lizzy. Thin Lizzy is a Irish Hard rock band that literally pretty much invented modern day hard rock. The were founded by Brian Downey and Philip Lynott. Thin Lizzy's best albums are Jailbreak, Fighting, and Bad Reputation. Sadly Phil Lynott died of drug overdose in 1986, but his spirit still remains in a bronze statue in Dublin. Thin Lizzy were around from 1969 to the present day, but they broke up a few times in the process. Thin Lizzy was a big influence to bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Iron Maiden even covered the song "Massacre." Thin Lizzy covers many subjects in their song lyrics, for instance one song like "Cowboy Song" is about cowboys and another like "Jailbreak" is about someone escaping from jail. So thats why I love Thin Lizzy.
