The King's Call!

One of my friends knows I'm on an Elvis kick and he sent me this song that Phil Lynott wrote about the demise of the King…

"Me, I went to the liquor store, I bought a bottle of wine, a bottle of gin…"

It features Mark Knopfler on guitar… how did I miss this one? The song takes on a little extra gravity when you know that Phil didn't make it very far down the road either…(love that Gretsch White Falcon!)...

  1. Well I must say that I bought that Sun Sessions album when when it came out in the latter days of vinyl: 1988 I think...Train Train, coming down down the line, that long black train....I saw the harbor lights...
    Also, Phil Lynott/Thin Lizzy one of my childhood favorites that still holds up.
