About this album

Black Rose: A Rock Legend is the ninth studio album by Irish band Thin Lizzy, released in 1979.
The album debuted at its #2 peak in the UK album charts and is the band’s most successful studio album to date. For the first time rock/blues guitarist Gary Moore stayed in the band long enough to record an album having had previous stints in 74 and 77 as well as working with Lynott in the rock band Skid Row in the late 60s and early 70s.

Around this time Moore recorded the album Back on the Streets with Lynott, spawning the UK top 10 single “Parisienne Walkways” (with Lynott on vocals). He left Lizzy that year following a dispute but worked with Phil Lynott again on his tours in 1984 and 1985 and on the top 5 single “Out in the Fields” and accompanying album Run for Cover, on what were to be Lynott’s final performances before his untimely death in January 1986.
Axl Rose has the cover of “Black Rose: A Rock Legend” tattooed on his right upper arm, and once said that he “wanted to show it to Phil Lynott, but then he died on me”.
The album included the second song Lynott wrote about a member of his family entitled “Sarah”, the first song by this name having appeared on 1972’s Shades of a Blue Orphanage. This version however was about his daughter.
