PHILIP LYNOTT FANS WORLDWIDE are set to join The Rocker’s story with Still In Love With You: The Book of the Philip Lynott Exhibition as the PledgeMusic project launches on PHILIP LYNOTT’S ANNIVERSARY and includes an array of collector’s items.
On the 28th anniversary of his death on January 4th 1986, for the first time ever, a major publication – drawing from the ultimate collection of personal archive material of Ireland’s first rock star (let alone any rock legend) – is set to be produced.
Two lavish limited edition books on the life and career of the legendary Philip Lynott are to be published, and fans worldwide will get the opportunity to have their name published in the book itself!
To get involved and make it happen, simply go to <a href=”http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/philiplynottstillinlovewithyou” target=”_”>pledge music.com/projects/philiplynottstillinlovewithyou</a>
Still In Love With You: The Philip Lynott Exhibition opened in Dublin in 2011 to rave reviews and ran for an incredible eight months. It subsequently moved to London for a successful run at The O2, before returning to Dublin for another three months. The exhibition was widely acclaimed by musicians, by fans and by there media, with Tony Fenton of Today FM describing it as “The greatest rock exhibition ever.”
Since then, Hot Press has been inundated with calls and requests from people who want to experience the exhibition again – or who missed it and want to see it for the first time.
In response to these calls, Hot Press will publish… Philip Lynott: Still In Love With You – The Book of The Philip Lynott Exhibition.
From today, Saturday, 4th January, fans of Philip Lynott and Thin Lizzy, all over the world will be able to make pledges exclusively through PledgeMusic. These pledges will not only make the ambitious project possible; they will also allow fans to become a real and interactive part of the creative journey of these new music projects…
– Luxury A4 Hardback Book: 260 lovingly-designed pages telling the story of Philip Lynott and Thin Lizzy, and highlighting many of the exhibition’s most popular showpieces. The book will feature a veritable treasure trove of Philo memorabilia, and will offer a powerful insight into the life and work of an extraordinary artist. From lyric books and guitars to stage clothes and Philip’s personal diary, it brings together an extraordinary collection of personal material, to create a fascinating picture of Ireland’s first bona fide rock star.
In addition, any fans who took a photograph of themselves at the Philip Lynott Exhibition in Dublin or London can feature in the book. Simply make a by a pledge and you’ll have the opportunity to submit a photo. It’s a remarkable opportunity to be an even greater part of this historic project.

This extraordinary book will feature the name of each ‘Pledger’ listed as a member of the Executive Producer team. It presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of a very special publication in rock history.
The two publications, along with other superb exclusives – some of them utterly unique one-off pieces – can be pre-ordered from January 4th, in advance of their release later this year. The pieces include eight large scale banners used at the exhibition itself – these are absolutely unique collector’s items!
