Grand Opening – Dublin By Roddie Cleere
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the passing of Philip Lynott. In those twenty-five years many tribute nights, exhibitions and documentaries about this charismatic man have made their way into the public's attention. 2011 has so far been a very eventful one for anyone with any interest in the man's life and music. In January, the annual Vibe for Philo saw almost 2,000 people from all over the world gravitate to Vicar Street in Dublin to pay homage to Ireland's first true rock star. In February, the latest incarnation of Thin Lizzy, which included Scott Gorham, Darren Wharton and the ever-popular Brian Downey, played to a sold out Olympia Theatre. The exhibition, which is housed in the upper gallery at St. Stephens Green Shopping Centre, is said to be the largest of its kind, will run for the month of March, with a possible extension.
Featuring many items for the die-hard fan, including original hand written lyrics to the many well-known hits, the exhibition also includes other interesting items connected to the man. This exhibition is a must for the die-hard fan but will also appeal to the casual music lover.
It truly shows the extent of Philip Lynott's fame and the heights he attained before his untimely death in 1986.
Twenty-five years since Philip Lynott passed and yet the hunger to know more about this iconic Irish rock star remains ever present.
