Remembering Phil Lynott On His Birthday


Today, the great Philip Parris Lynott would have turned 72. The Irish musician and songwriter, best known as the founding member, the principal songwriter, lead vocalist, and bassist of Thin Lizzy was born on this day in 1949. Sadly, we lost Phil on January 4, 1986, after a lengthy battle with drug abuse. Phil remains a popular rock icon, and in 2005, a statue in his memory was erected in Dublin, Ireland.
