Now 31 years.

Even given the various sad losses the music industry encountered last year, THIS one STILL bites.

Wish Phil had been able to heed his own lyrics:

      "Got To Give It Up" - from "Black Rose" - released (and bought by me) on 13th April 1979.

        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff
        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff

        Tell my mama and tell my pa
        That their fine young son didn't get far
        He made it to the end of a bottle
        Sitting in a sleazy bar

        He tried hard but his spirit broke
        He tried until he nearly choked
        In the end he lost his bottle
        drinking alcohol

        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff
        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff

        Tell my brother I tried to write and
        Put pen to paper but I was frightened
        I couldn't seem to get the words out right
        Right quite right

        Tell my sister I'm sinking slow
        Now and then I powder my nose
        In the end I lost my bottle
        It smashed in a casbah

        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff
        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff

        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff
        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff

        I've been messing with the heavy stuff
        For a time I couldn't get enough
        But I'm waking up and it's wearing off
        Junk don't take you far

        Tell my Mama I'm coming home
        In my youth I'm getting older
        And I think it's lost control
        Mama I'm coming home

        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff
        I've got to give it up I've got to give it up - That stuff

Philomena Lynott, Mother of late Thin Lizzy legend Phil Lynott, passes away at 88.

The woman was a force to be reckoned with.

RIP - she gets to join her son again after all these years. A mother is never supposed to out live her children.

Along with Lemmy - this dude is at the very top of my musical heroes list.

He was only 36 when he left us, so just 1 more year and we'll have been without him for as long as he walked this earth.

So much talent in 1 human-being, and STILL missed so VERY VERY much.
