This Really Happened: Thin Lizzy Being Backed Up By A Grandma

    This is from the “The World Was a Wilder Place In 1982 File:” In that year, a woman named May Booker sent a letter to the BBC, saying that she, at 70-years-old, loved Thin Lizzy, and would love to play with them live. Because Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott was raised by his own grandma, he allowed Booker to play backing synths on the band’s performance of “Hollywood” live on BBC. The performance is pre-recorded, but Booker is incredibly happy faking rocking the shit out of a crowd. Just the greatest stuff here. [Daily Swarm]
