Various Re-post-ions: Thin Lizzy

We here at Postcard Elba are big Thin Lizzy fans, so to say we are anxiously awaiting this documentary is a bit of an understatement. This was supposed to be released to theaters this month, but you know, pandemic and whatnot. The distributor Eagle-Rock have a great number of concerts and documentaries available via digital streaming services and hopefully this gets added to the rotation soon. In the mean time, check out one of our favorite Thin Lizzy moments – when they played with 70 year old superfan May Booker after she wrote in to the BBC asking if she could play with them.

Various Re-post-ions: May Booker & Thin Lizzy

Our buddy Ben Bussell posted this on his Facebook page, and it was just too good to not repost.

In 1982 May Booker, a 70 year old, wrote to the BBC and said she’d like to play with her favorite band, Thin Lizzy.  The band thought that was awesome. They were right.
