    My favourite band as a young un. Decent book written by Philomena about the legend.
    What a song writer and inspirational front Man he was.
    RIP. You gave us a Rock legend never forgotten.

    75% it was done in the studio though according to Tony Visconti.

    Still my favourite from Phil is this one, as in retrospect it seemed to sum his own life up

    It would of been touched up in the studio, like every live album, but 75% not a chance, just listen to bootlegs from the same period, they're not much different if at all. I saw them live a couple of times and they were a great live band.

    Fighting's a better record than those two.

    Tell Tony not me. There’s been a fair bit of debate about his percentage by others involved but he sat with the tapes for days on end doing all the detailed editing. I saw them live a few times but you can’t really tell from that or from bootlegs how well the recording would have come out. It’s not just about tuning or mistakes. You get all kinds of separation problems, uneven room reflections and noise.

    They were a live band imho.
    One of the best ever. Lynott was probably my favourite frontman.

    OOOSH YEAH Central Defender

    I’m not sure I’m that boshed then. I can see the appeal but not for me really.

    I never listen to their albums.

    The only song I’ve heard and liked was Whisky in the jar. Just read it’s a bloody cover version. Still a good song though.
  15. My Aunt was her best friend, and worked for her when she ran a Hotel for creatives in Manchester. She was actually Phil's god parent (and mine), unfortunately my Aunt died when I was 13 and I never made full use of it - my mam later told me that I met Phil and his Mam when I was a bairn - but I've no recollection really.

    When I went to Dublin the statue had been temporarily removed for maintenance. Bit of a hike to get to it too.

    It's a traditional song and they gave it a whole new arrangement, so not really a cover.

    Well it is like.
  19. An ex-colleague of mine went to school with him - in the same class was the bloke (Matthew Corbett) who took over working with Sooty.
