Phil Lynott (20 August 1949 – 4 January 1986)

regarding Music Immortals:

U2, Van Morrison, The Cranberries: I love them.
I have been reminded about the greatest Irish rocker all-time.

4 January 1986 Phil Lynott he was 36

"on the night of 25 December 1985, he was rushed to hospital suffering from a kidney and liver infection.[2] He died of heart failure and pneumonia on 4 January 1986"

3/4/1986 richard
42 suicide by hanging
[ ... ]

(We observe the process here: We are preserving the sequence in which our Immortals died. Lynott should have been on this chronology from the start; forever between Ricky Nelson and Richard Manuel ... with the deep hollowness of what that reveals.)

I need to embed a player here and have Ricky, Phil and Richard back-to-back-to back.
That's the chord Death played with His scythe between 1985 and 1986.

and the beat goes on
