The Power of the Plimsouls
I've referred to it and finally found the shot! Thin Lizzy's Phil Lynott joining the Plimsouls onstage at the erstwhile Starwood in West Hollywood. A sweaty post-show shot of the band with Phil was publihsed in Billboard, Cashbox, Creem and all the other rock n roll magazines back when this happened.
There are no photos, however, taken by anyone, that really and truly capture the power of the Plimsouls live show. That Phil Lynott wanted in on the power of the Plims live ON stage with them is some testimony...
When the Plimsouls finally had an album to release, there was a who's who of LA rock n roll, punk and not punk in the house to party in its honor. Check out the faces.... most of whom you know.
The late Bruce Gary of The Knack with fellow drummer, Plimsoul Lou Ramirez.
Belinda Carlisle not hiding from the flash bulbs, unlike her friends.
