William Rory Gallagher was an Irish blues and rock guitarist; singer, composer, and producer who lived from March 2, 1948, to June 14, 1995. He has been dubbed “the finest guitarist you’ve never heard of” due to his virtuoso playing and relative lack of renown compared to others; and has influenced guitarists such as Brian May autographs and Eric Clapton. Rolling Stone magazine ranked Gallagher as the 57th best guitarist of all time.
Gallagher, who was born in Ballyshannon; County Donegal, and raised in Cork, established the band Taste in the late 1960s and released solo albums in the 1970s and 1980s. His albums have sold more than 30 million copies around the world. Due to changes in the music autograph industry and ill health, his fame and output dwindled in the 1980s. Gallagher underwent a liver transplant in 1995; but died later that year in London due to complications at the age of 47.

Gallagher formed “The Taste,” which later renamed simply “Taste;” a blues rock and R&B power trio, in 1966 after completing a musical apprenticeship in showbands and being influenced by the increasing popularity of beat groups throughout the early 1960s. Gallagher and two Cork musicians, Eric Kitteringham (died 2013) and Norman Damery; formed the band at the beginning. By 1968, however, they had been replaced by two Belfast musicians, Gallagher on guitar and vocals, drummer John Wilson, and bassist Richard McCracken.
The band performed frequently in the UK; including at the Marquee Club, where they supported Cream at their Royal Albert Hall farewell concert; and the blues supergroup Blind Faith on a North American tour. Eddie Kennedy managed the group, who issued the albums Taste and On The Boards; as well as two live albums, Live Taste and Live at the Isle of Wight.

The band disbanded soon after their appearance at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival; and a year later, the live record from the festival published. Gallagher stated that the band broke up due to creative differences and a management issue; “We’ve reached the end of our natural lifespan. I wanted to play blues, while the drummer wanted to perform jazz. We also had management issues, which resulted in me having to deal with a lot of legal issues; due to the contract I was under, I couldn’t play for six months after Taste broke up “..
More open in a later interview in 1977; “Everything went smoothly, but I was determined to get rid of my manager, who was a complete jerk. That’s when he spread all those lies about me in order to discredit me “.. Dónal Gallagher; who took over as Rory’s manager, insisted on taking his prior manager, Eddie Kennedy, to court to recoup royalty payments. Gallagher was hesitant to pursue ‘major’ management deals after the incident; and he later turned down an offer from Peter Grant, the manager of Led Zeppelin.
Relations, strained at the conclusion of the band’s existence. At a show in Glasgow, Wilson refused to return onstage for an encore, and Gallagher claimed they were not talking to each other at the Isle of Wight Festival. Around Christmastime in 1970, they staged their farewell show together.
