Rory Gallagher has today’s almost forgotten track

Enough time has passed since I last posted something by Rory Gallagher that I think it’s time we did again…Rory was, easily, among my ten favourite British Isles bred blues players, and from Taste through to his solo work always had a sound that was totally his own…he was able to make a lasting mark in his relatively short time on earth without ever rising to arena level stardom…destined to be a support act at that level, he still did quite well in the theatre venue world…never got to see him, but, of course, now it’s way too late…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.author of ‘Today’s Almost Forgotten Track’

I saw this artist at the PNE. He played in one of the old wooden buildings maybe the forum.
He was and still is one of the best guitarists Ive ever heard.

Thanks 13…I’m afraid he’s on my “the ones that got away” list…

Not sure he’d appreciate you calling him British.

Milo…he lived and worked there, in England, but I did not call him English…I called him British…Ireland is part of The British Isles…
