Eagle Rock Films announced the production of a documentary film about the life and music of late Thin Lizzy legend Phil Lynott, titled “Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away”. The film will be directed by Irish filmmaker Emer Reynolds following Lynott’s life from his birth in the West Midlands to his upbringing in working class Dublin and achieving global stardom with Thin Lizzy before his untimely death in 1986 aged just 36. The film will feature a plethora of contributors including Lynott’s Thin Lizzy band mates Eric Bell, Scott Gorham and Darren Wharton, plus Metallica’s James Hetfield, Skid Row’s Brush Shiels, U2’s Adam Clayton, Suzi Quatro and Midge Ure. “Having been a huge Thin Lizzy fan throughout my life, it’s an incredible honour to be bringing this celebratory and intimate portrait of lead singer and songwriter Philip Lynott to the big screen”, says the director. A release date for Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away has yet to be confirmed.
