Did you know that legendary rockers Thin Lizzy - famous for songs such as ‘The Boys Are Back in Town’, ‘Whisky In The Jar’ and ‘Jailbreak’ played at The Dog on Hagley Road AND at The Bear on Bearwood High Street on the same bill as Judas Priest? No! Us neither...OMG!...WOW!
Here's more about the gig at The Dog from Eamonn Jolley who was actually there - http://www.philip-lynott.com/SaturdayStayback-1983.htm
More proof that Bearwood well and truly ROCKS!
Welovebearwood have scoured the YouTube archives and found this incredible footage of Thin Lizzy’s performance at The Dog for Channel 4’s Saturday Stayback programme in 1983.
With jazz in Lightwoods Park bandstand and Warley Woods’ mini festival this weekend welovebearwood would love to know more about Bearwood’s musical heritage.
Who have you seen play live in Bearwood? Were you at Andy Hamilton’s gig the night Mick Hucknall of Simply Red turned up? (thanks for the tip Phil Musgrave) Did you see the Beatles play at Thimblemill Baths? Did you know Chrissie McVie (nee Perfect) of Fleetwood Mac when she lived here?
P.S Have a read of Bob Piper’s hilarious ‘Unidentified object expected over Bearwood’ article on the Bearwood Blog by clicking on this. It made us smile!
