Rory Gallagher

Hard drinking Irish guitar virtuoso, Rory Gallagher really just wanted to play his guitar.  He didn’t have time for stardom or all the rock star trivialities.  In my opinion his best stuff is on his live albums, he just seems to do the most amazing guitar work in his live sets.

I discuss Rory in The Story of Rock and Roll and the whole ”how does it feel to be the best guitarist in the world” thing. For the purposes of this post let’s just say that Rory Gallagher was a phenomenon and he deserves far more recognition than he gets. If you just buy the live album Irish Tour ’74 you will know.
