The Irish Connection - Van The Man and others

Post  edygee on Fri Nov 04, 2011 9:45 pm







Rod Stewart covered the next one but I prefer the original Van's version


"I am in awe of a musician like Van Morrison. I had to stop listening to Van Morrison records about six months before we made The Unforgettable Fire because I didn't want his very original soul voice to overpower my own."
Bono

1969:"So Jimi, what's it like to be the best guitarist in the world?" Jimi: "I don't know, ask Rory Gallagher".

Have you ever noticed that, as a rule anyway, an Island is land?

"As the band's creative force, Lynott was a more insightful and intelligent writer than many of his ilk, preferring slice-of-life working-class dramas of love and hate influenced by Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, and virtually all of the Irish literary tradition."
John Dougan -music critic






"Thin Lizzy boasted some of the most critically acclaimed guitarists throughout their history"

You can't have an Irish thread without the "Pogues". Very Happy The classic "Fairytale Of New York" with "Kirsty McColl". Cool
