The Boys Are Back In Town 5/5/22

Published by Manchester-based Spenwood Books and compiled by music historian Richard Houghton, Thin Lizzy – A People’s History, brings together previously untold eyewitness accounts of the Irish Rock legends in action, from their Dublin roots to their break up in 1983, and today's Video Of The Day goes back to 1981 and a radio broadcast of their gig recorded live at London's Hammersmith Odeon. The new book takes the reader on a journey through Lizzy’s career, from Phil Lynott’s Dublin childhood to Lizzy’s early success, the trans-Atlantic breakthrough with the album 'Jailbreak' and the chasing of fame in America, and on to the rows, the walk outs and the band’s break up.Thin Lizzy – A People’s History (ISBN 978-1916889637) is available to order now via bookshops or direct from
