Thin Lizzy: The Rocker - A Portrait Of Philip Lynott
The Rocker is an in-depth look at the life, career and tragic death of legendary rock star Philip Lynott, the founding member of Thin Lizzy.
This Lizzy's breakthrough song, Whiskey in the Jar, hit the charts in the United Kingdom in 1973. Its success was followed three years later with Jailbreak and then The Boys are Back in Town, which became an international hit and fulfilled Phil's dream of becoming a rock star.
This program features interviews with Phil Lynott and his wife, Caroline Crowther, who speaks about him for the first time since his death; rare concert and television footage; clips from some of the great Thin Lizzy gigs, and classic Thin Lizzy videos.
