The band Macbeth was formed by '
Movement' bass player & vocalist Pat Quigley, (front right). Lead
vocals, (front left) is Limerick man Eugene Wallace. Drummer (back
left) is John Donnelly and lead guitarist is Joe Staunton. Jimmy Foley
was van driver and friend.
The band was quite
successful but short lived. Eugene Wallace who was a friend of actor
Richard Harris was planning to go to London. Pat Quigley was
approached by Phil Lynott in order to form 'Orphanage', Joe Staunton
also joined with Brian Downey on drums.
Pat has never been given credit for helping Phil with his bass
playing. They spent many hours in our flat in Fairview in mind numbing
lessons and at Orphanage gigs Pat would hand over his Fender bass to
Phil and take a break.
