Phil Lynott is most famously known as the front-man of everybody’s favorite hard rock band from Ireland, Thin Lizzy. You know “The Boys Are Back In Town,” “Whiskey In The Jar,” “Jailbreak” and so many other hard hitters.
Lynott was more than just a musician though, as outlined in the soon-to-be-released documentary about his life, Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away. The film talks about Lynott growing up in Dublin, Ireland, his life as the lead singer of Thin Lizzy, and his tragic, early death. Featuring interviews with James Hetfield of Metallica, Adam Clayton from U2, Huey Lewis and more, we can’t wait to see it. The much-anticipated trailer is set to be released on Thursday, August 20th, but you can check out the :23 trailer teaser below, where the only question asked is: “Do you want a good, steady trade, a job? Or do you wanna be a dirty rock musician?” Check out the full story here.
