Sunday RnR: Thin Lizzy – Thunder and Lightning

thin_lizzy_-_thunder_and_lightning

34 years ago, on March 4, 1983, Thin Lizzy released their final album, Thunder and Lightning. Having released the album, the band embarked on a farewell tour, plagued with its own set of problems. The album had a slightly heavier sound than the rest of Thin Lizzy’s body of work. Ironically, the last single off the record was “The Sun Goes Down”, as this was what was happening to the band, as an era was ending. Founding member, frontman, and bassist Phil Lynott passed away 3 years later. While the Band has reformed a couple times since then, this remains their final album, only touring in tribe to Lynott’s work.
