The late Phil Lynott of the rock band Thin Lizzy was an Irish musician and the voice behind the song I consider to be Thin Lizzy’s biggest hit, The Boys Are Back In Town. Of all the songs from that timeframe, that’s one that runs through my head all the time, a great song. Lynott passed away in 1986, at the young age of 37, quite a loss. There’s a great bio of him on Wikipedia, and it includes a great photo of a statue built to memorialize Lynott in front of the Bruxelles club on Harry Street, Dublin, Ireland.
Here’s a live performance of Boys by Lynott and Thin Lizzy:
