92. Thin Lizzy - Thunder & Lightning

1. Thunder & Lightning
2. This Is The One
3. The Sun Goes Down
4. The Holy War
5. Cold Sweat
6. Someday She Is Going To Hit Back
7. Baby Please Don't Go
8. Bad Habits
9. Heart Attack

The first of 2 Lizzy albums on my list. The final Thin Lizzy album brought John Sykes to the forefront of hard rock music 1983 and the team of John Sykes & Phil Lynott remains one of my favorite rock teams ever. Sadly, Phil passed on in 1986 and we never got another true Thin Lizzy album. A recurring theme throughout my list will be guitar tone. The mid 70s Gibson Les Paul through an early Mesa Coliseum 300 watt amplifier gave John one of my favorite instantly recognizable sounds. I hope to see John one day in concert in whatever capacity, he's one of my guitar gods.

Favorite track: Cold Sweat
