The best dream line up´s - The Songwriters
I continue my series of fictional bands where I list the best possible dream line up´s, first out was The Perfectionists under the bandname Blackmore.
Today, we´re talking the best songwriters around where the late Phil Lynott is fronting the band and since Pete Townshend is in THE OVERTURE, their first album would of course be a rock opera.
My guess is that the mainsound would be something between Wings-Live and let die and The Who´s Quadrophenia but with progressive elements and even celtic melodies a la Lizzy´s Black Rose.
With lyrics written by Lynott and Townshend and the music handled by the whole band, the songs wouldn´t be that long but instead normal 4-5 minute songs.
The story is about a composer that is writing a symphony about his hometown from the top of a hill but never get´s finished because of all the disturbing elements of the city.
Album title - Fading views of the city
Lead Vocals - Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy)
Keyboards - Kerry Livgren (Kansas)
