The Eagles Vs. Thin Lizzy – Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame, Round One

Eagles Vs. Thin Lizzy

One of Los Angeles’ most representative bands squares off against one of Ireland’s least representative groups in the latest round of the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame.

Each month, our readers will determine which of eight legendary artists or bands is immortalized forever for their contributions to classic-rock history. The Eagles started as Linda Ronstadt‘s backing band in early-’70s L.A. before soaring on their own to become one of the decade’s most popular bands. At first, there was plenty of twang in their tunes, but by the time they crafted their masterpiece ‘Hotel California,’ they had become a solid rock ‘n’ roll unit.

Thin Lizzy¬†formed around the same time but in a totally different part of the world: Dublin. But their straight-up approach to rock ‘n’ roll didn’t really sound Irish. They never reached the commercial heights of the Eagles, but their twin-guitar attack and frontman Phil Lynott‘s expressive songwriting made them of the ’70s’ most influential bands, especially with their classic ‘Jailbreak’ album.

So which of these two excellent bands gets your vote? The Eagles or Thin Lizzy? The choice is up to you. You can vote once a day until Sunday, Dec. 15, at 11:59 PM EST, and the winner will be announced Jan. 6, 2014. Be sure to read our official rules here.
