Back in the late sixties, Jimi Hendrix was on a popular afternoon talk show, The Mike Douglas Show.  When Mike Douglas asked Jimi  "What's it was like to be the best rock guitarist in the world?"  Jimi responded "I don't know, you'll have to ask Rory Gallagher" Despite the fact Rory toured the world and sold over 30 million albums, he never achieved mainstream fame.  Like many creative types, Gallagher had a weakness for alcohol and died in 1995 of complications from a liver transplant, at the age of 46.  Check out Rory for yourself.
