PHIL LYNOTT's Guitar Missing After Raid On Wax Figures In Ireland

According to The Associated Press, a guitar adorning the figure of THIN LIZZY frontman Phil Lynott is among the items that are missing after a raid on wax figures owned by Ireland's National Wax Museum.

At least 50 figures were stolen or wrecked several weeks ago, the museum reported yesterday. The wax museum, closed since 2005, has been storing its 400 figures in a warehouse while it works to reopen this fall.

Police say they suspect the warehouse was used for an all-night rave party.

The museum was razed for a hotel in 2005. Museum manager Kay Murray said she expects to announce a new location next month but said she doesn’t know where $1.4 million to fix the damage will come from. Some items — such as authentic rebel uniforms — are irreplaceable.
