Thin Lizzy fans, take note:  Martin Popoff has just com­plet­ed his tril­o­gy of Thin Lizzy biogra­phies.  This final vol­ume is enti­tled It’s Getting Dangerous: Thin Lizzy 81–12.  It cov­ers the final three albums from the orig­i­nal Phil Lynott era of Thin Lizzy, the vari­ety of solo albums and off­shoot bands that fol­lowed and the ref­or­ma­tion from recent years.  Better yet, it also includes a detailed Thin Lizzy discog­ra­phy that brings the whole series full cir­cle.  This title is avail­able direct­ly from Popoff only so check out the dual-gui­tar details below for links and oth­er order­ing info…

It’s Getting Dangerous: Thin Lizzy 81–12

As the back cov­er blurb sez…

In the fol­low-up to Fighting My Way Back: Thin Lizzy 69–76 and We Will Be Strong: Thin Lizzy 76–81, Popoff doc­u­ments the trag­ic end to his three part saga, the tragedy that is the death of Phil Lynott. But before Phil’s sad demise, there is much to cel­e­brate. It’s Getting Dangerous: Thin Lizzy 81–12 address­es the­se mile­stones and more, begin­ning with the Lizzy albums Renegade, Thunder And Lightning and Life/Live.

Branching out, look for dis­cus­sion of Phil’s solo album The Philip Lynott Album and the man’s last track Nineteen, plus Wild Horses, Grand Slam, Gary Moore, and also Brian Robertson’s time with Motörhead plus his recent years solo excur­sion, Diamonds And Dirt.

Moving for­ward, there’s a detailed look at the revived Thin Lizzy that wild­ly enter­tains audi­ences all over the world today, with much dis­cus­sion from the boys with respect to chart­ing the lega­cy Phil has left for them – and us. Wrapping this tril­o­gy with a big red bow is an all-encom­pass­ing discog­ra­phy that will serve as use­ful ref­er­ence tool for the seri­ous Lizzy schol­ar. It is a com­pletist ges­ture much request­ed by own­ers of the first two books thus far, and its heft should live up to the demands of the Lizzy faith­ful indeed.

As with books I and II of the sto­ry, Martin has endeav­oured to provide reams of fresh inter­view footage to sup­port his fresh telling of the tale, addi­tion­al­ly stuff­ing the book with pho­tog­ra­phy and mem­o­ra­bil­ia shots upon most every page.

Immerse your­self in Popoff’s cel­e­brat­ed record-by-record method­ol­o­gy and emerge a reju­ve­nat­ed Lizzy fan, new­ly appre­cia­tive of the deep album tracks hid­ing with­in this sin­gu­lar band’s con­tro­ver­sial last two records, one of them, inci­den­tal­ly, being the author’s fast favourite of the whole cat­a­logue.
