Posted: January 6th, 2006, by Chris S

A little late but Jan 4th was the 20th anniversary of the death of Phil Lynott, a man worth remembering if ever there was one. Ever read John Lydon’s book “No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs”? Lydon felt hard done by because he ticked one of those boxes, imagine being black and Irish 30 years ago. Lydon threw his rattle out the pram, Lynott partied in the face of it. Cheers Phil!
Here is an unofficial page worth a peek.

Chris lives for the rock and can often be seen stumbling drunkenly on (and off) stages far and wide. Other hobbies include wearing jumpers, arsing about with Photoshop and trying to beat the world record for the number of offensive comments made in any 24 hour period. He has been married twice but his heart really belongs to his guitars. All 436 of them.
