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

Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini

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

La ricerca ...

Read "Rory Gallagher: 50th Anniversary Edition Box Set" reviewed by Doug Collette


The 50th Anniversary Edition box set of Rory Gallagher's eponymous solo debut is an elaborate expansion upon the virtues at the heart of that 1971 record. In fact, as with brother Donal's prose recount of the album's history, each component of content enclosed in the glossy slipcase---its simple but striking graphic design itself replicating that of ...

New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers: Vol. 2

Read "Vol. 2" reviewed by Doug Collette


The New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers Volume 2 is replete with the same instinctual camaraderie and musicianly savvy as its predecessor. Likewise culled from sessions recorded in 2007, this sequel is decidedly not comprised of mere leftovers or otherwise sub-par tracks originally left unreleased. On the contrary, the alternately upbeat and reflective atmosphere reaffirms the ...
