Best Irish bands....

Taste were good, but they were just a little too of their time. . . Rory only really reached his full potential once he went solo, I think.
Yes, I'd agree with that.

Though you could tell he was great even back then; apparently, when asked what it was like to be the best guitarist in the world, Jimi Hendrix said "you'll have to ask Rory Gallagher".

I played a gig the other night, wearing an RG t shirt and a bloke came up to me after and reckoned that, on one UK and Ireland tour, he'd gone to every date, and stood at the front. He said that, on the last night, Rory's brother came to fetch him backstage afterwards, where he had a drink with the great man. He got a bit emotional recounting the story.

I had this on tape years and years ago, still as good as I remember:

You never hear this one on the radio at home:


Sadly, I think that's for the obvious reason.

Skid Row - not to be confused with the LA Hair Metal also-rans of the 80s. Gary Moore's first band, from about 1970, and led by Brush Shiels:
