Definitely, one of the all time great heavy rock/ blues artist.Too bad we both will miss out
on seeing him play live. Have a live DVD and album though and guess that will have do then.

Yep they will have to do, He had such talent and was taken too early like a lot of legends.

Just wanted to say I'm so glad I'm going to a concert by Rory's band in December. Maybe I'll get a video for you guys. :)

Top Priority is awesome. Album is filled with awesome slide riffs that I typically love in blues music.
Public Enemy No. 1

Differences

Rory Gallagher is an artist I had simply not heard of before entering this forum.
I have visited his thread and listened to his music. The fellow was a fine musician. Reminds me of Eric Clapton a bit.
I've seen many artist perform live. From Bluegrass to Country to Folk to Rock to Blues. I would not have walked out on one of his shows, but I would not have purchased any LP's either. But that's ok, everyone does not have the same likes and dislikes. It would be a boring world if we were all just the same. :cheers2

Get thee back Satan
:omg::omg::omg:

Eric Clapton !!!! :oyea:

Just joking ....well kinda ....Clapton leaves me cold whereas Gallagher lights the fire within.....but its true if we were all the same, life would indeed be boring and discovering new music wouldn't exist...

But because I'm a garrulous old fart...I present the evidence as thus...




I rest my case M'lud !

No offence intended, I never heard of Rory Gallagher until I discovered him here. I don't ever recall hearing him played on my radio stations. Sometimes European artist don't get heard in the States. It was not my fault, I assure you.

I've listened to him now and I like his music. :cheers2
