Yesterday I saw this documentary in the cinema. Very special, since it was the first movie I saw in this pandemic. Also very special because the entire audience was double my age. 'All these old rockers...' mumbled a guy a few feet away, with his Thin Lizzy shirt on.
I grew up with Thin Lizzy because my parents named me after the song Rosalie. And although born in 1990 in the Netherlands, that was not the only song I knew. I discovered Thin Lizzy like it was a band releasing new songs. I bought albums as a teenager, I even somewhat followed Phil's solo career.
Having that said, I was tremendously excited to see this documentary. Phil was a big part of my life, but I didn't know much about him. Who was this guy that was always blasting through my speakers?
The documentary is very complimentary to Phil, and not without reason. He was a special man. A lot of songs passed through the docu, even songs I didn't know yet. It is a very personal movie and all the comments stay very personal. That was maybe the only thing I missed: Phil's influence on other musicians. But nevertheless, a very moving docu. It's very dreamy, just like Phil.
For me, Thin Lizzy will always have a place in my life. And this docu is a nice add to the library! Wel done.
