Rory Gallagher Corner, Dublin 2
Rory Gallagher born William Rory Gallagher (2 March 1948 - 14 June 1995) was an Irish blues-rock multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and bandleader. Born in Ballyshannon, County Donegal, Ireland, and raised in Cork, Gallagher recorded solo albums throughout the 1970s and 1980s, after forming the band Taste during the late 1960s.
A talented guitarist known for his charismatic performances and dedication to his craft, Gallagher's albums have sold in excess of 30 million copies worldwide. Gallagher received a liver transplant in 1995, but died of complications later that year in London, England aged 47.
Gallagher was always associated with his well-worn sunburst 1961
Stratocaster (Serial Number 64351), which his brother Donal has
officially retired. It was reputedly the first in Ireland, and was
ordered from Fender by Jim Connolly, a showband member performing with
The Irish Showband.
