Lynott To Be Honoured

THIN LIZZY fans paid tribute to late rocker PHIL LYNOTT on Friday (19AUG05) when they unveiled a statue they funded in his favourite street in Dublin, Ireland.

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN star died of heart failure in 1986 after years of battling drug addiction. He was 34.

Lynott's mother PHILOMENA, who unveiled the memorial, says, "It is the proudest day in my life. For over 20 years I have been looking forward to it.

"I am happy with the statue, I love it, I spent many days down at the foundry advising him. We walked in a few times and we took a chisel out to make sure he got his chin right.

"I love him forever and I will miss him forever. Life is awful without him but knowing all these people are loving him the way they do, they are like a big woolly cloak around me.

"They write to me telling me how much they love him and miss him. I am not alone in missing him."
