When the Irish guitarist / vocalist passed away he left behind an eleven album catalogue of inspired music,and the memory of unforgettably energetic concerts.
Bassist Gerry McAvoy (Rory Gallagher/Nine Below zero/Champion Jack Dupree/Deep Joy) appeared on every one of these albums.
“It must have been around 2006 when I started listening to all my old vinyl, which I hadn’t listened to for years. Among these records were my Rory Gallagher albums. I played them constantly realising what great songs and what a great composer Rory really was. I wanted to take these songs and play them live,but I needed the right musicians.”
