JOHNNY THE FOX

In 1991, MOJO editor, Mark Ellen invited me to write the first article in a proposed series of articles about bizarre rock and roll deaths. The story would have a 1,000 word limit. The subject of the debut article was to be Phil Lynott, the lead singer of Irish rock group, Thin Lizzy. Little had been written about Thin Lizzy or Phil Lynott, since his sudden and tragic death on January4, 1986. What was written was usually about his problems with drink and alcohol. No-one wrote about the legacy of Thin Lizzy and what Phil Lynott had given to rock and roll. It was MOJO‘s Second issue, styling itself The Rock and Roll Magazine. I argued Phil Lynott deserved better than 1,000 words. He agreed.
