February 8, 2017.....New book by Colm Lynch - Mushroom, A Collector's Item

We received a package this morning from Colm "Link" Lynch, original member of the 1970's Celtic rock group Mushroom. The package included his new book about the band and his autobiography. Colm asked us about contributing to the book and it includes our brief history of the band along with many of the photos which appear on the website. The book is an amazing collection of facts and photo about the band and Colm's life both in Ireland and later when he went to live in Denmark. The original band (originally called Hessuanta)  featured Colm (drums), Michael Power (keyboards), John "Dee" Donoghue (guitar), Alan Brown (bass), and Pat Collins (vocals and fiddle). Aonghus McAnally would join after the departure of John Dee in February, 1973. Colm tells the story in detail and really does a great job describing the excitement of the era when Celtic rock was just taking off in the form of the band, Horslips. We wish Colm every luck with the book and want to thank him sincerely for mentioning the site and helping keep the memories of this great era in Irish entertainment alive.
