Rest in Peace BB King 16/9/25-14/5/15

Last night the music world lost one of it’s biggest legends, the phenomenal BB King aged 89. King was the indisputed King of the Blues, he recorded 42 studio albums from 1957 till 2008 and is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time. King played with pretty much anyone who was anyone in the blues and rock world and had close friendships with many fellow blues musicians including Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton and even in his 80s he still toured and brought the house down with his minimalist style and gorgeous voice.

Rest In Peace BB

Rory Gallagher- The Forgotten Guitar Hero

2/3/48 - 14/6/95

While he never achieved the mainstream success of some of his contemporaries such as Clapton and Hendrix, the Irish guitarist was considered by many to be be equal if not that greater than them. Throughout his career Rory never compromised his music, refusing to release singles that would be a passing trend and always maintaining his unique sound in favour of popular radio-friendly success. Nonetheless Rory earned himself a legion of adoring fans across the world especially in Greece, Germany and both sides of the conflicted Irish border through his legendary live performances. 

As a performer Rory put his heart and soul into every performance he gave and as such despite consistently good studio albums he is perhaps best known for his albums “Irish Tour ‘74″ and “Live in Europe”. In the end Rory’s electric energy on stage, constant touring and heavy drinking caught up with him and he passed away aged 47 in 1995. For true fans of both electric and acoustic guitar and classic rock, Rory Gallagher is one of the greats and if you have never heard of him I suggest you listen and enjoy.

Here’s a small selection of his fantastic performances:
