While watching a documentary on Irish music, I learned that the band Thin Lizzy was actually an IRISH rock band. Aside from that completely shocking fact is that the lead singer, Phil Lynott was black. His mom was Irish and his father was Afro-Guyanese.
I guess it makes more sense to me why Thin Lizzy actually performed the song Whiskey in the Jar. And it also makes sense that there would be statue of him in city centre Dublin.
The statue is just off of Grafton Street outside of a place called Bruxelles, that has great music as well.
