    BBC - The Joy Of Country Music

    This celebration of the history and aesthetic of country music tracks the evolution of the genre from the 1920s to the present, exploring country as both folk and pop music - a 20th century soundtrack to the lives of working-class Americans in the South, forever torn between their rural roots and a mostly urban future, between authenticity and showbiz.

    Exploring many of the great stars of country from Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams to Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton, director Andy Humphries's meditation on the power and pull of country blends brilliant archive and contributions from a broad cast that includes Dolly Parton, the Handsome Family, Laura Cantrell, Hank Williams III, kd lang and many more.

    If you have ever wondered about the sound of a train in the distance, the keening of a pedal steel guitar, the lure of rhinestone or the blue Kentucky hills, and if you want to know why twang matters, this is the documentary for you.

    I'm only 33 but was also raised on classic rock bands like Thin Lizzy. If I ever had to " rank them" they would be right up their with Zeppelin if you captured their entire career and album catalog.

    The error rrrrrrr..should be fixed now.

    BR your attachment is showing error.

    Don't know if anyone else was doing the twin guitar style like them back in those days but I'm guessing they would have to be one of the first. RIP Phil Lynott. Drugs suck!!!

    28 YEARS AGO: THIN LIZZY’S PHIL LYNOTT DIES
    by Nick DeRiso January 4, 2014

    [​IMG]

    Thin Lizzy’s hard-living frontman and bassist Phil Lynott escaped the grips of crushing childhood poverty in Dublin, but ultimately couldn’t out run his own demons. He died at 36 from heart failure and pneumonia on Jan. 4, 1986, having been admitted to Salibury Hospital in Wiltshire, England on Christmas Day after “a drink and drug binge” at his home.

    Thin Lizzy found initial fame in the U.K. with a raucous early-’70s version of the traditional Irish folk song ‘Whisky in the Jar.’ (Metallica subsequently did its own take, directly inspired by Thin Lizzy, as part of 1998′s ‘Garage Inc.’) A few years later, Lynott and Company broke in America with their romping No. 12 hit ‘The Boys Are Back in Town.’ Lizzy, however, would never chart any higher than No. 77 in the U.S. again (with 1976′s ‘Cowboy Song’), and Lynott increasingly turned to alcohol – or worse. “I suppose he thought drugs would help him out of the low spots,” Thin Lizzy’s Scott Gorham said at the time of Lynott’s death.

    Prior to Lizzy, Lynott — who was born to a Brazilian father and an Irish mother in 1949 — had been in a series of regional bands including Skid Row and Orphanage. Lizzy began in 1970 with Eric Bell on guitar and Brian Downey on drums. Guitarists Brian Robertson and Gorham arrived a couple of years later, and the classic-era lineup produced ‘The Boys Are Back In Town’ — which was said to have been a tribute to a loose-knit group of Manchester ne’er-do-wells called the Quality Street Gang, who frequented a bar run by Lynott’s mom. (He later spotlighted one of them in another Lizzy track, ‘Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed.’)

    When Thin Lizzy split in 1984, Lynott had already released two light-selling solo efforts, 1980′s ‘Solo in Soho’ and 1982′s ‘The Philip Lynott Album.’ His solo composition ‘Yellow Pearl’ was used as the theme song for the weekly British television show ‘Top Of The Pops’ from 1981-86, and he also collaborated with Lizzy’s Gary Moore on 1979′s ‘Parisienne Walkways’ and 1985′s ‘Out In The Fields.’ But Lynott seemed to be slowly slipping into obscurity as that fateful Christmas Day approached in ’85.

    Lynott’s two young daughters, Sara and Cathleen, were at his home when he collapsed. His estranged wife rushed over to help, and ultimately took Lynott to the hospital where he died. Some three hundred mourners attended a memorial service held on Jan. 9, 1986. He was buried in Dublin, where he had been raised by his grandmother.

    Thin Lizzy attempted to continue without Lynott, before ultimately retiring in 2012. Several members of the group, including Gorham, are now set to carry on as the Black Star Riders.

    Lynott was just words can't describe. Somehow he kept rockin by altering other guitarists like Gorham, Sykes, Snowy White, Eric Bell, Gary Moore and Bryan Robertson. :eek:
