JUST IN! NEW BIO OF PHIL LYNOTT

Philip Lynott: Renegade of Thin Lizzy by Alan Byrne charts Lynott’s musical infancy on the Dublin music scene of the 1960s until his premature death in 1986. It spotlights the musical juggernaut that was Thin Lizzy in their prime and Lynott’s subsequent dalliances with other artists outside of the band from the mid seventies onwards. Fresh new interviews with friends, family and colleagues reveal the depths of his creativity, his insecurity and ultimately his failure to commit to anything or anyone outside of his own burning desires for musical greatness. €14.95.
