William Rory Gallagher (2 March 1948 – 14 June 1995) was an Irish blues and rock multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer. Born in Ballyshannon, County Donegal, and brought up in Cork, Gallagher recorded solo albums throughout the 1970s and 1980s, after forming the band Taste during the late 1960s. His albums have sold over 30 million copies worldwide.

Gallagher received a liver transplant in 1995, but died of complications later that year in London at the age of 47.

This mini series The Guitar Talkers is dedicated to Di of Pensitivity 101. Gary of Bereaved Single Dad is also a serious fan of the late Rory Gallagher who was a mastered Guitar Talker himself! Below are also fans of brilliant Guitarists!

  1. I’d never heard of him before Gary brought him to our attention either. He was awesome. So talented and seemed like a very humble, down to Earth guy who just loved playing his guitar and making music.
    Sad that he died so young.
