Thin Lizzy's Lynott sang the hard-rock drama of "The Boys Are Back in Town" with the Gaelic soul of a self-described "black Irish bastard" (his mother was Irish; his father was a Brazilian sailor). Just as crucial to the song's success was the twin-guitar lead by Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson. Lynott died from years of drug abuse in 1986; he remains a beloved Springsteen-like figure in Ireland.
