A Beer Philistine's Journal
Love the beer blog, but I had to laugh at your Yelp review of Tin Lizzy. Not Thin Lizzy dude, Tin Lizzy. The nickname for the Model T made by Ford. Back in the day. That being said, you don't bullshit.The most popular story describes how the band's original lead guitarist, Eric Bell, who was a fan of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, bought a copy of a Dandy comic after seeing Eric Clapton depicted reading a copy of its sister publication The Beano on the cover of the 1966 album "Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton". Bell suggested Tin Lizzie, the name of a robot character from the comic, which evolved into Thin Lizzy, a sly nod to the Dublin accent in which "Thin" is pronounced "Tin".
