Phil remembered at King’s Call gig
THE boys were back in town last Friday night at the Hot Spot in Greystones, with a tribute to the late Philip Parris Lynott.
On the 33rd anniversary of the beloved Dubliner’s death, tribute band Thinner Lizzy headlined ‘King’s Call for the Homeless’ at the Greystones venue, raising money for WH Five Loaves/Arc Housing and Living Life Counselling.
Other musicians to perform their incarnations of Lynott’s music on the night included Aran McMahon, Karl McKenna, Brian Meakin, Conor O’Donnell and Clara Rose.
The intimate celebration of Phil Lynott’s life included the full blown rock vibe on the main stage.
The evening also included the art, music and poetry of the Thin Lizzy front man, incorporating his wide repertoire of musical styles from punk and metal to trad.
The fundraising aspect of the night was in keeping with Phil’s legendary generosity of spirit, and in parallel with the bleak times in which he rose to fame.
