Band Description:

Rory Gallagher was an Irish blues and rock musician who became known for his electrifying guitar playing and soulful vocals. Born 1948 in Ballyshannon, County Donegal, Gallagher began playing guitar at a young age and was heavily influenced by American blues musicians such as Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, and Buddy Guy. 

Gallagher formed his first band, The Fontana Showband, at the age of 15, and later went on to form the power trio Taste in the late 1960s. The band gained a following in Ireland and the UK, and Gallagher's passionate live performances and blistering guitar solos soon made him a sought-after musician. 

In the early 1970s, Gallagher embarked on a successful solo career, releasing a string of acclaimed albums such as "Irish Tour '74" and "Photo-Finish". He continued to tour extensively, playing to enthusiastic crowds around the world and earning a reputation as one of the greatest live performers of his generation. 

Gallagher's music was characterized by his fiery guitar playing, which blended elements of blues, rock, and folk music. His emotive vocals and heartfelt lyrics also set him apart from many of his contemporaries. 

Despite his success, Gallagher remained a humble and down-to-earth musician who always put his art first. He continued to perform and record throughout the 1980s and 1990s, releasing albums such as "Defender" and "Fresh Evidence". 

Sadly, Gallagher's life was cut short when he passed away on 14 June 1995 at the age of 47. Nevertheless, his music continues to inspire generations of musicians and fans around the world. With his soulful voice and blistering guitar playing, Gallagher left an indelible mark on the world of blues and rock music, and his legacy will continue to live on for ever
