Metallica, Whiskey in the Jar

I remember a Thin Lizzy gig, in the 70s, when this got everyone in the mood!

haha – awesome Martin – I nearly put the Thin Lizzy version on (a tribute to Phil Lynott http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgJnqAx5N9Y&feature=fvst ) I can’t believe how many of these artists die young!

In SA when we were teens, we used to go to a place called The Barn where three Irish brothers used to play a very folksy Oirish version of this. Never heard the Metallica version – I prefer it, haha

oh sacrilege bb 😉 this is a very old Irish folk song and sung by all amateur and not so amateur Irish bands in pubs – the metal versions came way later – hahaha

Hmm…more musical history mysteries for me. 🙂

That’s ok Charles – I have Irish heritage so we are bought up on these things 😉

Rockin’ out. Yes. I remember dancing to bands like Metallica with that neck bending, hair flailing thing. It’s a wonder I didn’t hurt myself. Great track 😎

Yeah, that head banging stuff could really do your neck in – haha – Shirl is a huge metal fan (in fact metal is about the only stuff he likes) – air guitar and hair flinging is his thang!

My boys had their Metallica days…I am glad they have expanded their musical choices.

hahahaha – it is a bit like that Benedicte (or get their rooms soundproofed!)
July 10, 2012 at 11:35 pm
you cannot soundproof Metallica! 😉

hehehe – my hubby is still locked in the heavy metal phase – sometimes he plays it really loud in his car in the garage 😉
