RORY GALLAGHER ~ HIS UNIQUENESS

Postby Jay Jay » 29 Jan 2011, 12:01

Right Rory fans..

On this topic I would like us all to tell / list the unique things or characteristics that made Rory Gallagher ..
So individually apart from the rest of us mere mortals?
Try and keep your answer to no more than 1 or 2 thinks or no more than 2 sentences ..

Example .. " Ireland's First Rockstar and Greatest Guitarist "

A picture of RORY may help you to come up with some answers :)

hi Jay Jay!

His battered Strat said all he had to say to the world! :)

Hi Jim,
Yes but what was also so unique about his stratocaster?

Another clue to the stratocaster question is. The uniqueness add's even a greater value to this particular guitar ££££$$$$€€€€????

Hi ! (good topic,Jay!)

...sooo many characteristics that made him so special and unique...but since we are asked to keep it down to one or two...other than all the obvious qualities/assets that set him apart from all the rest....

1. He was IMO an" undercover" peace activist,( playing all those Gigs in Ireland when nobody else would dare to,bombs going off everywhere...uniting people in peace and excitement, who would otherwise have dispised and fought each other..) and for that alone ought to have been honoured with a medal (...not that this would have been of too much importance to him,which could almost be put down as an additional point..)

2.He was probably Ireland`s most stubborn headed native son,there ever was !! -Yet soooo adorable !! :D

He let his music speak for itself...no gimmicks or fads. I think its rare that an artist realizes this AND sticks to his own convictions without selling out. That's why his music will continue on with the greatness that it is.

Amen, he was and is a thoroughly positive influence.

Also:


He was 100% dedicated to his fans and gave his all regardless of whether it was a small crowd or large

He was successful and popular despite not having radio play

He AVOIDED doing singles


Regards
Richard

No two songs/solos played the same over all those years of gigging. Incredible! Nuff said!
