Songs for While I am Away

Director Emer Reynolds on Phil Lynott - Songs For While I'm Away: "We wanted to look at the artist behind the rock star, and the man behind the artist, and to tell the story of his life”

We share the excellent Hot Press interview with Film Director Emer Reynolds.

It was more than four years ago, when the Thin Lizzy grapevine began buzzing with rumours that a documentary was being planned about the life and music of the great Dublin rock hero, Philip Lynott. In insider circles the news that the award-winning maker of The Farthest, Emer Reynolds, had taken up the baton as director was warmly greeted: she would bring an affectionate, poetic touch to the story. Having been delayed by the onset of Covid-19, the film is finally set for December release. Fans of the man can relax: it is a powerful and loving portrait of Ireland’s ultimate rock star.

Thin Lizzy Rock Legends

Rock Legends

Rock Legends is without doubt impressive and is a MUST HAVE for any supporter!
Thin Lizzy ‎– Rock Legends Label:UMC ‎– 7784976 Format: CD, Compilation 5 × CD DVD, DVD-Video, Region 0 Box Set, Deluxe Edition, Limited Edition Country: UK & Europe Released: 23 Oct 2020 So as said above Rock Legends a Must Have for any Thin Lizzy Supporter but what is in the mysterious black box and what are the stand out tracks? Well those good people over at Discogs have listed the tracks and details but have offered no comment on the contents which is fair enough as there is so much here! For me the Stand Out Tracks are Dublin [RTE Radio Eireann Session 16 January [1973] Requiem For A Puffer (AKA Rocky) [Alternate Vocal, "Rocky He's A Roller"] and In The Delta [Demo] but on a second listen it will be different they are ALL good!

Anniversary of Gary Moores Passing

Muched loved former member of Thin Lizzy died on this day back in 2011

The late, great Gary Moore (sadly he passed away in 2011 much too young at 58) is probably Northern Ireland’s most legendary guitar slinger son. Make that definitely. Born a Belfast boy in 1952 he became something of a musical prodigy, playing a mean axe from the age of 14 on. His career flourished locally since he was a childhood friend of Phil Lynott and Brian Downey and his apprenticeship served he delighted audiences with his flamboyant style and immaculate taste in Skid Row and Thin Lizzy.
