Yup...Phil Lynott was a tortured genius whose addictions got the best of him in the end. I am not a fan of Metallica so that oen went past me.It's a great song. The lyrics flow off the tongue and the melody kills. There are several versions I dig but, yeah, it feels like it was made for Phil Lynott to sing. Speaking of great Irish songs....
Shane MacGowan catches a lot of flak for being a lush but this song is beautiful and timeless, a modern classic.
Speaking of great Irish singers. His son has down syndrome.
