Metallica pays tribute to Phil Lynott performing “Whiskey in The Jar” in Ireland

Metallica released a professional footage from their performance of Thin Lizzy’s classic version for “Whiskey In The Jar” in Ireland. The band paid tribute to the late bassist and vocalist Phil Lynott in their recent concert at the Slane Castle in Mearth, Ireland.


“We love you, Phil,” frontman James Hetfield said at the end of the song.

See the moment below:

In 1998, on the “Garage Inc.” covers album, Metallica paid they tribute to the band making a version for “Whiskey In The Jar”, winning a Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy for it at the 2000 ceremony.

James Hetfield also shared a photo kissing the state of the late bassist in Dublin:

“Much respect and love to my favorite songwriter, Mr. Phil Lynott.”
