Granny Rocks With Thin Lizzy
January 28, 2011

'Jim'll Fix It' was a show in the U.K. that helped make wishes come true for people each week.

Check out what happened when a 70-year-old grandmother asked to play with Thin Lizzy, one of the coolest, hardest bands of the time.

It's actually pretty sweet... The lead singer Phil Lynott was raised by his grandmother in Dublin and jumped at the chance. Why isn't there a show like this today?!

The keyboard solo at 1:42 is amazing.
