Rory Gallagher, the Irish guitarist, became legendary for his nonstop-touring ethic and fiery craft. Playing a weathered Stratocaster, often wearing a flannel shirt, Gallagher electrified Chicago and Delta styles with scalding slide work and hard-boiled songwriting. He should have been around for years but sadly died in 1995 as a result of viral complications following a liver transplant. He was just 47.

It could have been the booze, and it certainly hadn’t helped, but ultimately it was the combination of tranquiliser addiction and other undisclosed narcotics that killed him. A decade long fear of flying, anguish and stress had taken its toll. The lethal combination of brandy and anti-depressants simply top and tailed the descent into oblivion.

It was all a terrible waste. Asked how it felt to be the greatest guitarist in the world, Jimi Hendrix famously replied ‘I don’t know, go ask Rory Gallagher.’
