Does the world need yet another book about Thin Lizzy? Somebody seems to think so, and he is not alone. This latest is published in Canada.
There are three books about Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy in the British Library's catalogue, and I have used all of them for my researches into the band, principally my contributions to the SongFacts database, so I won't be reading a fourth. I was lucky enough to see them perform at the height of their powers, and although I was and remain a fan, I'm not a fanatic, but Thin Lizzy fanatics there are, and some of them will surely buy this, especially as the mailing from the band's number one Scandinavian fan has given it the thumbs up, which is hardly surprising, because Peter Nielsen contributed to it.
Author Martin Popoff is an established musicologist; his many credits include a biography of the legendary Ronnie James Dio, and this is actually the third part of a trilogy about Phil and the gang. It’s Getting Dangerous: Thin Lizzy 81-12 is available from:
