Review: Phil Lynott: The Rocker

User Review  - Caroline - Goodreads

This is an excellent biography of Phil Lynott and is very well researched. There is no hearsay. Phil's family, particularly his mother Phyllis, are quoted extensively, as are fellow musicians and bandmates such as Brush Shiels and the late Gary Moore. This is a must read for Phil Lynott fans.

User Review  - Ian - Goodreads

great on factual information but maybe it left some soul out. The endless paragraphs of tour dates and quick quotes almost seem like the plot line of a much much longer book. I did like a lot of the interviews but wish they could have been more complete. Read full review
