About Gallagher[edit]

  • One of the things that was crucial for me I got from Rory Gallagher, which was the idea of, like, being a guitar player for life and living it.

  • Rory's death really upset me. I heard about it just before we went on stage, and it put a damper on the evening. I can't say I knew him that well, but I remember meeting him in our offices once, and we spent an hour talking. He was such a nice guy and a great player.
  • So these couple of kids come up, who's me and my mate, and say 'How do you get your sound Mr. Gallagher?' and he sits and tells us. So I owe Rory Gallagher my sound.
