Philip Parris Lynott (/ˈlaɪnət/, LY-nət; 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 founder member, the principal songwriter, lead vocalist and bassist. He was known for his distinctive plectrum-based style on the bass, and for his imaginative lyrical contributions including working class tales and numerous characters drawn from personal influences and Celtic culture.

The Rocker is an in-depth look at the life, career and tragic death of legendary rock star Philip Lynott, the founding member of Thin Lizzy. This program features interviews, rare concert and television footage; clips from some of the great Thin Lizzy gigs, and classic Thin Lizzy videos. This Documentary was originally made for broadcast on television in the UK back in 1996, and it was then (and still is) the best portrait to date of Thin Lizzy's tragic front man Phil Lynott. The show features interviews with most of the key people in Phil's life, including fellow band members Eric Bell, Brian Downey, Scott Gorham, Brian Robertson, and Gary Moore. Midge Ure (who filled in with the band for one tour) is also interviewed.

Philip Parris Lynott (August 20, 1949–January 4, 1986) was an Irish singer, instrumentalist and songwriter, who first came to prominence as the frontman of Thin Lizzy. Lynott was born in Hallam Hospital (now Sandwell General Hospital) in West Bromwich (then in Staffordshire), England, the son of a black Brazilian father, Cecil Parris, and an Irish mother, Philomena (aka Phyllis) Lynott, whose surname he adopted. In 1983 Thin Lizzy disbanded, and later that year Lynott recorded a rock'n'roll medley single, "We Are The Boys (Who Make All The Noise)" with Roy Wood, Chas Hodges and John Coghlan, and collaborated with former bandmate blues/rock guitarist Gary Moore on "Out in the Fields" (a No. 5 UK hit in 1985, his highest-charting single ever). and "Parisienne Walkways" (a UK no. 8 hit). The Rocker: A Portrait of Phil Lynott' was released on DVD in the UK April 2007.

This image was created with the permission of the man himself, Philip Lynott, and the image was derived from my own artwork for the back cover of Thin Lizzy’s album Black Rose. Philip was a bit stuck for money at the time so this opportunity was welcome and he got a good laugh from it too. The poster was part of a huge ad campaign and was my own idea. I was a freelance consultant Creative Director in a Dublin ad agency at the time and when I ran it by Philip he was chuffed so we went ahead and produced colour ads, leaflets, posters and even giant bus side hoardings
