Rory Gallagher 1948-1995
David Sinclair, Rolling Stone, 10 August 1995
BONO CALLED him "one of the top 10 guitar players of all time," and there is no doubt that Rory Gallagher, who died in a London hospital June 14, was one of a rare breed. A maverick showman, he toured relentlessly, applying his rough, high-energy playing style to a fiercely independent vision of the blues. And although he was never a household name, his worldwide grass-roots following was sufficient to earn him sales of close to 20 million albums in the process.
