Musician

Rory Gallagher

Born:

Rory Gallagher is the man who, without question, spearheaded and influenced the entire Irish rock movement. Remarkably, many years after his untimely passing in June 1995, Rory's music is as popular as ever with his legion on faithful followers. Rory's music was his religion. The conviction and sincerity with which he projected it have assured him a place in rock history and earnt him critical acclaim as one of the greatest torchbearers of driving, effusive rock and blues. The new album augments what we already knew about Rory and multiplies it by performances that show him in a whole new light. Born in 1948 in Ballyshannon and raised in Cork, Gallagher's rock 'n roll odyssey began at an early age when he saw Elvis Presley on TV and became inspired to get his first guitar

Rory Gallagher: All Around Man: Live In London

Read "All Around Man: Live In London" reviewed by Doug Collette


To the uninitiated, Rory Gallagher's All Around Man -Live in London may appear to be nothing more than a routine live release from the late Irish bluesman's archive. Even to fans who take only a cursory glance at the title and its contents, it could well seem to be a somewhat desultory effort in the wake ...

Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini

Read "Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Il percorso musicale del chitarrista Roberto Zorzi è così ricco ed eclettico che è impossibile includerlo in un particolare genere musicale. L'iniziale amore per visionari artisti rock come Robert Fripp e Brian Eno s'è arricchito nel tempo di approcci, tanto liberi quanto anticonvenzionali, di Derek Bailey e altri esponenti dell'avanguardia inglese degli anni settanta. La ricerca ...
