Abstract or Summary

This essay uses Paul Gilroy’s The Black Atlantic to examine Phil Lynott, of ’70s Irish hard rock band Thin Lizzy. Lynott’s “mixed” lineage (half Caribbean black, half Irish) relates to Gilroy’s black diaspora in terms of parentage and popular music the latter being central to Gilroy’s argument about the articulation of black experience of trauma and dislocation in creative and other forms.
