Some of my cooler mates persuaded me to buy a ticket to a Thin Lizzy gig in the RDS, Dublin, 1983. I was luke warm about going along but excited as hell as it was my first 'big' gig and I was 15. The show was brilliant, Philo was in majestic form and I was a fan ever since. I remember coming outside afterwards trying to pop my ears by squeezing them and I said to my mates, 'jeysus, that was loud'. They still slag me about that! No photos as it was pre smartphone and digital cameras.
