It isn't that St. Patrick's Day is the only time I bring up the subject of classic rock artists who were born in Ireland. But you have to admit that it does offer a good excuse for some classic rock world history.

Hard rock, heavy metal, punk rock, soft rock, garage rock: all of them have been brought to us since the mid '60s from the Emerald Isle. So, yeah, Irish do rock!
