“Thin Lizzy: The Boys Are Back – The True Story” from Abstract Sounds Books has just been released. The book plus four-DVD set is out today (March 29).
Here’s a description of the set:
“Featuring a masterful and comprehensive text by Dave Thompson plus a comprehensive track by track analysis by Robert M. Corich, this unique production also includes four interview DVDs packed with candid film and audio interviews with past and present members. A heartfelt recollection from Philomena Lynott, mother of the late great Phil Lynott, is an unmissable addition. The interviewees span all eras of the band’s history and include original members Phil Lynott, Eric Bell, Brian Robertson, Snowy White and John Sykes. Insider interviews include the men who made LIZZY what they were including key producers, managers and album sleeve designers. The archive interviews with the band and insiders are compared and contrasted with the views of a leading team of music journalists, insiders and musicologists. This uncensored and independent title has not been viewed or approved by the band or its management and is completely free to tell the unvarnished story of the band as it really happened. The contents of this amazing book and DVD combination are completely essential reading and viewing for THIN LIZZY fans everywhere.”
Phil’s Mom Philomena Lynott says: “My son was the greatest rock star that ever was or ever will be.”
The current lineup of Thin Lizzy consisting of The Almighty vocalist/guitarist Ricky Warwick, Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, ex-Whitesnake bassist Marco Mendoza, along with Phil Lynott-era Lizzy members Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton appeared on Ireland’s “The Late Late Show” and performed a killer version of “The Boys Are Back In Town” on March 11th.
