My twitter mate Greg just reminded a few of us about Rory Gallagher- and, boy, are we glad he did.

What an amazing talent is this guy who has stayed true to himself and the Blues and turned down many offers to join big name bands so he could be his own man and never sell his musical soul nor sell out his legion of fans- he is still Guitar deity in Japan- for twenty pieces of silver.

Greg also mentioned that when Hendrix was asked what it’s like to be the greatest guitarist in the world, he replied, ask this guy.

That guy was the Irishman born a bluesmen named William Rory Gallagher who has always stayed under the radar and let his music and no frills ‘live’ performances say all he wanted to say- through the language of the Blues and his guitar.

Anything more would be superfluous.

Sometimes, less really is more.
