Rory Gallagher

Rory Gallagher

Biography

Irish born singer-songwriter and guitarist Gallagher was a Boogie Rock road warrior. He recorded prolifically and was much admired by his peers during his short life. Gallagher began his professional recording career with a power trio called Taste. The band enjoyed some chart success in England in the early 1970s, and it established Gallagher as a singer and guitarist of note in the crowded post-Cream landscape. He followed Taste with numerous recordings under his own name, all marked by his soulful vocals and slashing, white-knuckle guitar work. Gallagher was equally adept at Electric Blues and Country Blues; he often mixed the two in a manner similar to that of his heroes Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. Gallagher died in 1995 at the age of forty-six from complications due to cirrhosis.
