@allmusic : But like many rockers of the 70’s, Lynott and most of his bandmates succumbed to the party hearty lifestyle of rock n’ roll – indulging in hard drugs and alcohol.
@last.fm : Lynott was born in Hallam Hospital (now Sandwell General Hospital) in West Bromwich (then in Staffordshire), England, the son of a Guyanese father, Cecil Parris, and a White Irish Catholic mother, Philomena (aka Phyllis) Lynott, whose surname he took.
@Discogs : In 1969, Phil Lynott moved to New York to play with Tony Williams’ Lifetime and he appeared on two classic Miles Davis records: In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew.
