Description by OLDIES.com:
Drawing on rare U.S. archived footage of Thin Lizzy in performance, previously unreleased on DVD, this is the powerful retrospective critical review of the music of a legendary band. Featured here are rare performances and archive interviews with Phil Lynott, alongside the views of the Lizzy album producer Nick Tauber, original manager Terry O'Neil, album designer Jim Fitzpatrick, original guitarist Eric Bell and a team of leading rock journalists. The film is presented by rock legend Tommy Vance, and includes the first heartfelt, in-depth filmed interview with Philomena Lynott, who provides the inside story of her son's life and work.
Hard-hitting and uncensored, this film was made in conjunction with the Black Rose memorial appeal organized by Philomena Lynott and dedicated to raising a bronze statue to the great man in his native Dublin. That doesn't mean this is the official sanitized view. We also explore the darker side of the influences that affected Phil's work and eventually claimed his life.
This presentation features rare performances of "The Boys Are Back In Town," "Emerald," "The Rocker," "Whiskey In The Jar," "Are You Ready," "Sha La La," "The Sun Goes Down," "Wild One" and more!
Rock legend Tommy Vance presents a fascinating and in-depth exploration of one of rock's most dynamic and unforgettable acts, Thin Lizzy. With a raucous working-class sound, Thin Lizzy added soul and intelligence to the metal scene, and their defiant attitude paved the way for the punk revolution. Along with live performances, the film contains interviews with singer/bassist Phil Lynott, guitarist Eric Bell, the band's manager and producers, rock journalists, and Philomena Lynott as she reflects on her son's life, music, and tragic death at 35.
