containing multitudes since 2004
A very similar player to the styling of Johnny Winter.A great one, & a superb singer & songwriter as well.
Rory was the best...
A great start to a great category & with no shortage of great subjects -- as Collaborators #586 once pointed out, there are thirteen hundred and fifty two guitar pickers in Nashville alone.
Before I saw the name I thought it was Jesse Ed Davis. Who I guess I am now nominating for inclusion at some point.
Where's his famous cherry burst Strat which he played so much, he wore off the finish?
SO looking forward to this series Gunslinger! I'm a big guitarists fan in general but Hendrix is the top of the pile for me.Heard a few Rory tracks but never really got into him. Essential tracks anyone?
There's a very well-put-together Best Of called "Big Guns:" Taste stuff, album tracks, live. Fly the flannel!
Anthony:Check out Irish Tour '74...
If you were cool in 1972 you were into David Bowie. When I was 13 though I used to love Rory Gallagher. He played very fast guitar, he wore ordinary clothes and he seemed to keep away from anything to do with girls.
'Irish Tour 74' is outstanding i think. (i am writing from Cork aptly enough...)
Hail to Cork! (My ancestral home)Great choice to start the series, my friend Mike would agree (he named his dog Rory).
Great photo! I saw Rory in Indianapolis in 1982; it was a good show. I agree with the Johnny Winters comparison, he had the same headlong tumbling quality to his playing. Looking forward to this series. Great idea, and a rich vein from which to draw. Jerry Reed? Link Wray? Bob Rich? T-Bone Walker? Freddie King? James Honeyman-Scott? OK, I'm getting too worked up.
