Rory Gallagher

Personality, attitude towards being a celebrity, his blistering live performances, the fact that he had the most badass strat in the world (his worn down 3-colour sunbust from 1961), his slide work and his playing in general and because he is one of the most overlooked talents in the music world. Even though he isn't here anymore he is one out of a few who actually deserves the title. He didn't marry or had children because he dedicated his life to playing his music! He toured more heavily than many others and even though he was seriously ill towards his untimely death he kept touring and playing and for that he deserves to be renowned! Amen!

RIP Rory
