As most of you know it's not easy writing hard rock/metal lyrics that don't quickly become dated sounding or embarrassing to listen to as you get a bit older. I was never really one to go in for all of that rainbow, wizards, dungeon & dragons/lord of the rings type fantasy lyrics so much preferring things that are more grounded in actual daily life experiences. So with that said I'd like to pay tribute to a couple of guys named Phil. Lynott and Mogg alphabetically. Both of these guys could really turn a phrase and were very handy with the double entendres and sexual innuendo as well but usually not in a cringe-inducing type way. I was listening to some UFO and Thin Lizzy over the weekend and found myself alternately laughing, crying and contemplating the meaning of love,life and the universe. Obviously guys like Freddie Mercury, Steven Tyler and Bon Scott were excellent at this as well but in my mind the two Phils were/are just a notch above. That's all folks...
No announcement yet.
Great Hard Rock/Metal lyricists...
