Thin Lizzy-Ac/Dc and other rock music.Posted: February 17, 2011
Ah the life of a punk in the 70s we were such music snobs at one point it was punk and some reggae and nothing else! in fact Joe strummer said it was Stalinist as if nothing had existed before punk! I remember putting all my old slade and glam rock records away and being quite ashamed that I had ever listened to things like that!
But listen to this racket by slade this was punk!
one of my friends bought the thin Lizzy Album jailbreak in 78 but i dismissed it out of hand as it was not punk but listening to the album today its like wow what a record and how stupid I was to dismiss it!
Thin Lizzy’s the cowboy song one of the greatest songs ever!
As I moved on I started listening to ac/dc and god forbid Led zeppelin too, punks dinosaur enemy, in fact I became a bit of a Zep head! but never a rocker! At the end of the day it’s all music some good some not so good but I love all sorts now electronic, pop ,punk ,rock you name it I love some of it!
Foot note I was told off slightly on twitter for mocking the arcade fire saying they were influenced by both the clash and culture club, and with some thought why can’t they be, were influenced by all sorts! Sorry I stand corrected!
