God rest the big man. I miss Lizzy like I miss being 12 years old.

Think I'll greet the day with a spot of King's Vengeance

"Lynott's last years were dogged by drug and alcohol dependency leading to his collapse on the night of 25 December 1985 at his home in Kew."

What's so great about that? Stan Getz for instance, coped and controlled his heroin and alcohol dependencies until his death at 64 year. This Lynott guy was a gluttonous pussy if you ask me.
