A strong dislike of the Dalai Lama and the practice of putting very young boys
in monasteries and telling 'em they are reincarnations of some dead cleric,
along it's sheer fashionability put me off the Free Tibet movement for life
(although it's profile has waned in recent years).
the above music was fine though (have heard this sort of stuff before).

yeah, music is music.
Lewiston sounds like he had a great job.
traveling the planet making recordings and sharing them with the world
was a nice gig to have.

I like this but it could have been cut down to a 2 or 3 minuter

THIN LIZZY & GRANNY MAY perform HOLLYWOOD (1982)

"The poor chart showing of the 1982 single HOLLYWOOD, the only single to be released from Lizzy’s eleventh studio album Renegade, was despite exposure on primetime television in the UK, when the band performed the song as guests on BBC One's Saturday evening show Jim'll Fix It in 1982.

[Fortunately there’s no appearance from Savile in the clip]

“The show normally made arrangements for children to have their wishes granted but on this occasion, May Booker, a grandmother in her 70s, had asked if she could perform with Thin Lizzy,” wrote Mark Putterford in ‘Phil Lynott: The Rocker’.

“The song was slightly rearranged for the purposes of the TV performance, with Lynott singing slightly different lyrics, and Booker playing a keyboard solo that she had written herself.”

The band's regular keyboard player, Darren Wharton, performed alongside her. She also contributed backing vocals together with Wharton, Gorham and the band's other guitarist Snowy White. Afterwards, Lynott presented Booker with the usual Jim'll Fix It medal, some Thin Lizzy memorabilia and a framed copy of the sheet music for her solo."
