GUEST,Mick Woods Great guitar intros (35) RE: Great guitar intros 17 Jan 11


Yeah the original 3 piece with Bell, Downey & Lynott. They were deaperate to get a hit and had spent 3 weeks recording "Black Boy On The Corner" they were told that themust have a B side and recorded "Whiskey In The Jar" in just a couple of hours. Incidently there is no bass on it Phil is strumming a telecaster into a practice amp. They even got all the words wrong/mixed up. Eric's solo in the middle is supposed to be loosley based on "Brennan On The Moor" When it was eventually released it was a bit of a sleeper and got no airplay at all until a couple of months later when Kid Jensen started playing it on radio Luxembourg the rest is history!
