The bronze statue of Thin Lizzy’s iconic singer/bassist Phil Lynott was vandalized last week.
According to TheJournal.ie, the life-sized memorial, which stands tall on Harry Street in Dublin, was knocked over on Friday morning by two boys. The boys were arrested by the Gardaí, the Irish police force, but were later released without being charged.
Lynott’s mother, Philomena, was not angry, instead blaming the incident on harmless teenage antics. The police are not expected to search for other suspects in the case.
However, the statue was damaged when it was tipped over, with Lynott’s coat suffering a large tear. The statue has since been removed in order for it to be repaired.
Lynott passed away in Salisbury, England in 1986. In 2005, the statue was first placed in Harry Square, with his mother and his Thin Lizzy band mates in attendance, Classic Rock Magazine reports.
Last December, several of Lynott’s former band mates formed a Thin Lizzy offshoot called Black Star Riders.
Their debut album, “All Hell Breaks Loose,” will be released on May 27.
