Funny / Thin Lizzy

  • Lynott had a knack for droll onstage remarks, usually of the Handsome Lech or Comically Serious variety. From Life (it helps if you can imagine this delivered in Lynott's dry Dublin accent):
    Phil Lynott: We'll be back just after this message. We have heard that there are people, here, in the Leisureland...that have consumed...large quantities...of alcohol. And on behalf of the management, this is frowned upon, as dangerous. It has also been brought to our attention that there are those...out there...and on the stage, [dropping his voice down to a Barry White-style basso profundo] that have indulged in sex. [normal] This is also frowned upon, as sex can damage...your health. So for all those people in bad health...welcome.
