Strange comparison. Completely different styles and players.
Rory is in the lead at the moment.

I don't know much about Dimebag Darrell, apart from the way he died.
Couldn't name you any of his tunes.

Well, and sadly, most of that other guy's following is made up of later generation Americans, and you mention Rory Gallagher to them, you'll generally get a blank stare, or a comment about that comedian who used to smash watermelons, or those two guys from Oasis. Rory was known more by word of mouth over here, he was a musician's musician. And we who saw him will always remember him, but the newer generation does not. :cry: Unless we change that... ;)

First, let me say, on behalf of my entire country, 1. I'm so sorry, and, 2. I never ever found this guy to be even remotely funny, and, 3. every time I mentioned Rory Gallagher to someone who I thought should know better, and I got this response, well, I wanted to punch them...

:oops: what can I say?

Now, let's all purge that memory with this:
