Episode 328: Thin Lizzy



Episode 328: Thin Lizzy
Pat and Kyle are joined by Thin Lizzy Super Fan Tom Neuerburg to discuss Ireland's greatest band! Apologies to U2 but I think they would also agree.
From October 26, 2017

With your host:

Pat Francis


Liner Notes

  • This week Pat and Kyle are joined by guest host Tom Neuerberg. Tom is a Thin Lizzy super fan so there is no one better to host this episode.
  • Tom is a fireman from the San Francisco area and Pat's FBBFF (Facebook BFF). He lo NOT a hero (which means he is) and he has seen the beast!
  • The most unrealistic thing in movies about firefighters are the scenes when they are in a burning building and talking to each other. It's never like that. They are working and once you put water on a fire you can't see a thing. You can't even see your hand in front of your face if it's dark.
  • The most dangerous part of being a firefighter in California is working on the freeway. Everyone is driving 70 and playing on their phones, taking pictures, texting, etc. Tom has almost been taken out 4 times on the freeway.
  • There are also two observers in studio, Marry and Barry Giglio. They were action winners for Smile Train so have been in studio before. They just flew in from Massachusetts. They brought beer and candy and really don't know anything about Thin Lizzy.
  • Thin Lizzy has been Tom's favorite band for 30 years. There really isn't a bigger fan. He even has a Thin Lizzy license plate (THNLZY) that his wife got for him a few years ago for his birthday.
  • Thin Lizzy has 12 studio albums and the first two don't have the classic Thin Lizzy sound. They are more folksy/bluesy.
  • Phil Lynott was a black Irishman. His mom, Philomena, was white and his father was a military man who was just passing through.
  • Thin Lizzy released two different songs named Sarah.The first was on their second album, Shades of a Blue Orphanage, and was written for Phil's grandmother. The other is on the album Black Rose and was written for his daughter.
  • The Rock Solid Guide is back in action! Andrew Rich retired and Joe Van Overberghe (the 'he' at the end is silent) has stepped in to take over. The nick name "Joey Notes" is born!
  • They worked with a famous producer, Ron Nevison, on Nightlife. Nightlife is where the classic Thin Lizzy sound starts to come together. Eric Bell was replaced by Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson. Scott is still in the band.
  • Pat and Kyle had a run in with an inebriated gentleman at the ArcLight cinema when they went to see It.
  • Pat's favorite Thin Lizzy albums start at Black Rose. This is where there best stuff is in his opinion. Gary Moore joined the band as a replacement for Brian Robertson.
  • Tom saw Thin Lizzy live while they were on the Chinatown tour. Code Blue opened for them on Dec 19, 1980 at the Warfield Theatre. He was a freshman in highschool and went with a friend and his friend's father because his parents weren't into that kind of stuff.
  • For the Chinatown album they got a new guitarist, Snowy White. He had a great name but didn't have much stage presence. They also picked up 17 year old Darren Wharton as their keyboardist. Darren still tours with the band.
  • Thunder and Lightning is a heavy metal album. They picked up John Sikes as a guitarist. John really influenced their heavy metal sound.
  • Bose the engineers of some of the world's best audio equipment, including the Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise Canceling Headphones. Everyone in studio is wearing them.Bose invented the technology in noise cancelling headphones 40 years ago. Bose believes in blocking out sounds and distractions so you can immerse yourself in what you truly love! Bose - Get Closer.
