Very well researched book which turned up facts that I didn't know about Phil Lynott and there I was thinking that I should go on "Mastermind" with Thin Lizzy as my specialist subject. A real page turner but be warned, the final chapters will break your heart as such a sad end for so great a talent. I consider myself absolutely privileged to have seen the Lizzy in concert and wish he was still here today. The music lives on and, yes Phil, all us Lizzy fans are still "out there"
