Scott Gorham Pays Tribute To Phil Lynott
The late Thin Lizzy mainman would have been 60 years old this week.
Thin Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham has issued the following brief but pertinent update:
“Man, you don’t realise how quick the years have gone until someone reminds you that Phil would have been 60 this year.
“He had such a huge impact on so many people around the world; I know he did with everyone that played in Thin Lizzy.
“To this day he is still missed by all of us.”
Lynott, who was born on August 29, 1949, died on January 4, 1986 from heart failure and pneumonia after an 11-day fight for his life.
The 36-year-old star had been admitted to Salisbury Hospital in Wiltshire with a serious kidney and liver infection on Christmas Day, after he collapsed from a drink and drug binge at his home in Surrey.
