Thin Lizzy

On this day in 1986 Thin Lizzy lead singer Phil Lynott passed away at the age of 36. A life cut tragically short (by heroin and alcohol abuse), and a band (one of the great underrated rock and roll bands) silenced forever.

This song came out posthumously...and is an eery goodbye to everyone who mattered to him. He recorded the demo of this song just a few months before he died. It was finished by his bandmates several years later.
