Rory Gallagher was a guitarist born in Ireland and played some pretty awesome blues for you people that don't know. I find he was a very under rated guitar player and had potential to be one of the all time greats with his distorted wah wah tone. Also was equipped with a great voice.

Anyone else consider him a favorite? he definitely is one of mine.

I love Rory... he is such an amazing guitarist!

Walk on Hot Coals is my personal favourite, but he has tons of other great songs, I would highly suggest him to any blues rock fans

Here in Ireland i don't really think he's under-rated because i think almost everyone i've met knows who he was.

Him along with Gary Moore are way up as my 2 favourite blues guitarists ever, i just wish Rory was still around because he was something VERY special.
