That's great, Nadine, thanks for posting it. Very heartwarming to read. Eric Sardinas is great!

He has quite a following and has appeared in many guitar magazines. He used to get a little flak because people thought he looked a bit "Hollywood" but he is a monster player and is very true to his roots. I hear more Johnny Winter in is playing than anyone else--even when he's playing a Rory favorite:

He puts on a great show and really connects with his audience, so he gets a Rory style thumbs up in my book!

Richard

I don't think this one has made the list here--pardon if it's a repeat: Alex Lifeson:


"He was awesome. We opened for him in 1974, so it was great to do those shows with him in the ’80s. I learned a lot from him. All those pick-harmonic things I do—I got those from him. I also loved his use of syncopated delays. I think he was an essential player for that period, and he was just a terrific person. He influenced a lot of guys. He was a huge influence on the Edge."

Regards,
Richard

Pat Cash ~ Wimbledon tennis champion said this. On Metal Express Radio.

Who are the bands that you rate the most highly now?

I like a bit of everything really. I’ve always loved Blues stuff. There’s something about it and I try to find some real fast Blues players. That’s one of the things I love, whether it’s Stevie Ray Vaughan or Rory Gallagher. I just love Rory Gallagher. For a guy playing in the 60`s and 70`s to play like that, as fast and brilliant as he was, was just fantastic. I actually got the chance to meet him once, very briefly. I used to do quite a lot of charity gigs around Wimbledon time and we used to get a load of guys to come in, like the guys from Maiden, who are mates of mine. So I managed to meet him during one of these shows.
Actually I was a member of The Cult for about a minute too. They split up and there were rumours that they were getting back together again and they were playing at a charity gig which was mine and I was up there playing “Wildflower” with them so I always say that I was in The Cult for a while. I’ve heard they’ve just got themselves a new record deal. They’re a really good band.

Yes Ryn, I will have to add Joe to list now after his rise to fame in the few years. From playing at small venues to playing at the large arena's now.
Plus with his inclusion in the super group 'Black Country Communion' too.
He is definitely up there with the best guitarist around these days .. that always site Rory as an influence. :)
