Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott Documentary Coming This Fall!

June 12, 2020

If there was ever a needed music documentary, this one might be it! Did you hear they’ve made a documentary about the life and career of Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott?

Word is award-winning Irish filmmaker Emer Reynolds is looking to release “Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away” this fall! As you might imagine, he’s interviewed a lot of musicians for this documentary, including Thin Lizzy’s Eric Bell, Scott Gorham, Darren Wharton, U2’s Adam Clayton, Suzi Quatro, Huey Lewis, Metallica’s James Hetfield and Ultravox’s Midge Ure.

“Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away” tells the story of Lynott, a young black boy from working-class 1950’s Dublin and how he became Ireland’s greatest rock star.

Reynolds said: “We are so delighted that ‘Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away’ — our film about the legendary Phil Lynott — will soon be coming to the big screen! We can’t wait to share it with Irish audiences and to celebrate Philip and his extraordinary life and music.”

They haven’t set a release date but you gotta know this one will be a must-see!!

Cannot. Wait.
