Potential of Lynott vs his Demons
April 24th, 2014
Short and sad story; always good to learn more about Lizzy and the tragic short life of Lynott. The song list and comments at the end are OK but he seems generous with his praise of a few songs i.e "Hero and Madman" and "Boogie Woogie Dance" are some of the worst songs from the Boys but the author does not offer enough criticism when needed. Also, he mentioned a few early songs that were incorporated in later works but did not follow-up on that interesting thought. I learned more about Grand Slam and again, the frustration of the potential of that group vs. Phil's addiction and early demise. The fact that Phil Lynott was not asked by his friend and countryman Sir Bob Geldof to be in "Live Aid" in the summer of 1985 us telling of the true extent of the fall from the top that Phil experienced; it seems only his mother was in his corner at the end.
