Philip Parris Lynott (20 August 1949 – 4 January 1986) was an Irish musician and songwriter.
His most commercially successful group was Thin Lizzy, of which he was a founding member,
the principal songwriter, lead vocalist and bassist.
He was known for his imaginative lyrical contributions including working class tales
and numerous characters drawn from personal influences and Celtic culture.

Lynott was born in the West Midlands of England, but grew up in Dublin with his grandparents.
He remained close to his mother, Philomena, throughout his life.
He fronted several bands as a lead vocalist, including Skid Row alongside Gary Moore,
before learning the bass guitar and forming Thin Lizzy in 1969.
After initial success with “Whiskey in the Jar”, the band had several hits in the mid-1970s
such as “The Boys Are Back in Town”, “Jailbreak” and “Waiting for an Alibi”, and became
a popular live attraction combining Lynott’s vocal and songwriting skills with dual lead guitars.
Towards the end of the 1970s, Lynott embarked upon a solo career, published two books
of poetry, and after Thin Lizzy disbanded, he assembled and fronted the band Grand Slam,
of which he was the leader until it folded in 1985.

Following Thin Lizzy, Lynott increasingly suffered drug-related problems,
particularly an addiction to heroin.
In 1985 he had a final chart success with Moore, “Out in the Fields”,
followed by the minor hit “Nineteen”, before his death on 4 January 1986
from sepsis secondary to pneumonia.
He remains a popular figure in the rock world, and in 2005
a statue in his memory was erected in Dublin.

Peter Antony interv. Iggy Pop – 19860000

Year 1986 – DJ Peter Antony talk with Iggy Pop
on Radio Luxembourg 208 :

19860000 Peter Antony interv. Iggy Pop (30.39)

This audio material is from Peter Antony collection .

James Newell Osterberg Jr. (born April 21, 1947), better known as Iggy Pop,
is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, and actor.
Designated the “Godfather of Punk”, he was the vocalist of influential
proto-punk band the Stooges, who were formed in 1967 and have
disbanded and reunited multiple times since.

Initially playing a raw, primitive style of rock and roll
(that progressed stylistically with each album), the band sold few records
in their original incarnation and gained a reputation for their confrontational
performances, which often involved acts of self-mutilation by Pop.
He famously had a colourful and often influential friendship and collaboration
with David Bowie over the course of his career, beginning
with the Stooges’ album Raw Power in 1973.
With both musicians having relocated to West Berlin to wean themselves
off their respective drug addictions, Pop began his solo career by collaborating
with Bowie on the 1977 albums The Idiot and Lust for Life.
Throughout his career, Pop is well known for his outrageous and unpredictable
stage antics and distinctive voice.
He was one of the first performers to do a stage-dive and popularized the activity.
Pop, who traditionally (but not exclusively) performs bare-chested,
also performed such stage theatrics as rolling around in
broken glass and exposing himself to the crowd …
