Entitled ''Live And Dangerous, Thin Lizzy, Showdown! On Tour With Lizzy And Queen 1977-1979''.



Pages 44-49

In the part of the interview/article covering Thin Lizzy's 1977 East Coast USA tour in New York and Boston, written by Harry Doherty, who personally accompanied and went on tour with Lizzy who was the support act for Queen...and with Queen! Doherty writes about and focuses on Queen as much as Lizzy as he romps with the 2 bands through 4 gigs. In New York at Madison Square Gardens, Nassau Coliseum, and the Syracuse Civic Center, and in Boston at The Boston Garden.



Of course, there is much discussed about Thin Lizzy, and all the band members especially frontman Philip Lyncott, and their performances, with interviews from the band in 1977 during these 4 gigs. But....at least half of Doherty's interviews and article are with and about Queen. He discusses how and why Queen chose Lizzy to open for them, Queen's performances, there are interviews with Freddie Mercury who playfully kids around with Doherty, and with both Roger Taylor and Brian May and their thoughts about their own performances and Lizzy's performances. There are some humorous and amazing anecdotes regaling about Doherty's being on tour, and life on the road with the mighty Queen (and Thin Lizzy), including...recalling how Roger Taylor, set up and very much enjoyed playing with a racing kit going through both bands' hotel rooms at The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan!
