Born in West Bromwich to an Irish mother, Philip Lynott was an iconic rock hero, as well as a poet and a songwriter of outstanding quality. As lead singer with the legendary Thin Lizzy, his powerful music reverberated around the world. Now, in Still In Love With You – The Philip Lynott Exhibition, rock enthusiasts, music fans, families and visitors to London alike can take an emotional and inspiring journey through the life and times, the music and memories of a phenomenal rock star and romantic.
From lyrics books and guitars to stage costumes and Phil's personal diary, it painted a fascinating picture of Ireland's first bona fide rock star. "It's an exhibition for anyone who loves music," Hot Press editor Niall Stokes said, "and especially for musicians it offers a special insight into what it is to be a musician and a songwriter."
Along with guitars, basses and other equipment used by Philip Lynott, there were tour jackets worn by the singer, flight cases, his personal diary, lyric books, school reports and Lynott's shares in Manchester United Football Club on display – as well as personal letters, cards and dozens of other unique items.
The Philip Lynott Exhibition also featured a huge amount of new material from the archives of Irish music magazine Hot Press, as well as additional photographs, original paintings and other exclusive artwork. There were video installations and other audio-visual material, including tributes from Bono, Imelda May, Brian Downey of Thin Lizzy and many more.
While on showcase in Dublin, the exhibition attracted visitors from the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Serbia, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, the USA, Canada and many more countries around the world, as well as from all over the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
