Phil Collins[edit]

I don't suppose anybody knows (or has found out) what Phil Collins actually did on this album? It seems to me that no-one knows. Cheers. Retrorocker (talk) 20:44, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

BBC tracks[edit]

I've read, but not at a reliable source, that the "BBC versions" on disc 2 of "Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed" and "Fools Gold" are identical to the album versions on disc 1. Is this correct? Needs to go into the article if it is correct and verifiable. --kingboyk (talk) 15:21, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

"Rocky" / Rocky Athas[edit]

For now I've reverted the addition of the information about Rocky Athas being the inspiration for "Rocky". His band Lightning never supported Thin Lizzy, and I have some doubts over the veracity of the story. Here [1] Athas describes how he was playing at a club called Mother Blues in Dallas, and Thin Lizzy and Queen were in the audience. Lizzy and Queen toured the US together and did play Dallas – on 25 February 1977, well after "Rocky" and the Johnny the Fox album had been released. Thin Lizzy did play Dallas on 5 June 1976 (before the song was written) but it's very hard to see how Queen could have been present on that day. If there's any truth in the story, it needs to be verified somehow. Bretonbanquet (talk) 19:59, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Genre[edit]

The opening track, "Boogie Woogie Dance", "Massacre", and "Rocky" all have clear elements of heavy metal, and I've added a reference.2602:306:8B83:4860:58D:190C:D4F2:3950 (talk) 20:24, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Not even close to being metal, see my note to you at the Jailbreak talk page. Bretonbanquet (talk) 20:44, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
