Following an astonishing eight-month run in Dublin, Still In Love With You: The Philip Lynott Exhibition is heading to London! The acclaimed exhibition will be showing for a limited time only at the British Music Experience from the 5 April - 24 June.
Born in West Bromwich to an Irish mother, Philip Lynott was an iconic rock hero, as well as a poet and a songwriter of outstanding quality. As lead singer with the legendary Thin Lizzy, his powerful music reverberated around the world. Now, in Still In Love With You – The Philip Lynott Exhibition, rock enthusiasts, music fans, families and visitors to London alike can take an emotional and inspiring journey through the life and times, the music and memories of a phenomenal rock star and romantic.
From lyrics books and guitars to stage costumes and Phil's personal diary, it paints a fascinating picture of Ireland's first bona fide rock star. "It's an exhibition for anyone who loves music," Hot Press editor Niall Stokes said, "and especially for musicians it offers a special insight into what it is to be a musician and a songwriter."
Along with guitars, basses and other equipment used by Philip Lynott, there are tour jackets worn by the singer, flight cases, his personal diary, lyric books, school reports and Lynott's shares in Manchester United Football Club on display – as well as personal letters, cards and dozens of other unique items.
The Philip Lynott Exhibition also features a huge amount of new material from the archives of Irish music magazine Hot Press, as well as additional photographs, original paintings and other exclusive artwork. There are video installations and other audio-visual material, including tributes from Bono, Imelda May as well as Brian Downey of Thin Lizzy and many more.
While on showcase in Dublin, the exhibition attracted visitors from the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Serbia, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, the USA, Canada and many more countries around the world, as well as from all over the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The Story Of Wish You Were Here
New York, NY (April, 2012) — Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to announce the simultaneous release on June 26 of Pink Floyd The Story Of Wish You Were Here on DVD and Blu-ray.
Wish You Were Here, released in September 1975, was the follow up album to the globally successful The Dark Side Of The Moon and is cited by many fans, as well as band members Richard Wright and David Gilmour, as their favorite Pink Floyd album. On release it went straight to Number One in both the UK and the US and topped the charts in many other countries around the world. This program tells the story of the making of this landmark release through new interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason and archive interviews with the late Richard Wright. Also featured are sleeve designer Storm Thorgerson, guest vocalist Roy Harper, front cover “burning man” Ronnie Rondell and others involved in the creation of the album. In addition, original recording engineer Brian Humphries revisits the master tapes at Abbey Road Studios to illustrate aspects of the songs’ construction.
The band members discuss the album’s themes of absence, the greed of the music business and former band member Syd Barrett, who is famously celebrated in “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”, which both opens and closes the album. The program also covers the unexpected visit Barrett paid to Abbey Road during the recording, the difficulties of the early recording sessions and how the decision to split “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” into two sections was the catalyst for the album’s successful completion.
The DVD and Blu-ray releases contain additional bonus material not featured in the TV broadcast version, including further interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason plus Roger Waters and David Gilmour performing excerpts from the Wish You Were Here album.
The Story Of Wish You Were Here is a fascinating document and fitting tribute to Pink Floyd’s outstanding achievement in the creation of this masterpiece.
