after 8 pages and 100s of guitarist named not once has Rory Gallagher been mentioned. He is highly regarded in Ireland and worldwide by his fellow musicians. Tagically he died in 1995 at the age of 47. <br><br>Rory Gallagher was an Irish blues and rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. Born in Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal, on 2 March, 1948, he grew up in the city of Cork. Based in London during most of his 30 year career, he toured extensively, sold 30 million records, and had a worldwide following of loyal fans. He died in London at the early age of 47, on 14 June 1995, from complications following a liver transplant. Although he had suffered health problems for some time, he toured until falling seriously ill late in 1994. Gallagher was a master of the guitar and he was influenced heavily not only by rock and roll, but by blues and jazz also. <br><br><br>http://www.lastoftheindependents.com/Rory.htm

He plays a 10-string and a super-8string acoustic guitar, as well as piano and other instruments. But he is regarded internationally  as a great piano and guitar player... His works with Nana Vasconcellos are really cool... I've heard there is a movie (a documentary) in which Patrick Moraz is presented to Egberto and Moraz really sort of under-rate him... and next shot you see Egberto palying various instruments and Moraz's mouth hangs wide open in astonishment....  You should really try some Egeberto Gismonti as well other Brazilian musicians like Hermeto Pascoal or Heitor Villa-Lobos.<br>ARF....<br>

Is there anyone you'd put ahead of FZ? I've been listen to Rory Gallagher alot lately and he's diffinately a undiscovered great. He's a differnet style then FZ so it's hard to judge them. But Rory is the rawist guitist you'll ever hear. I'd put him a head of FZ only because Rory is Irish. Plus he plays a mean mandolin.

I think Tommy Bolin is fucking amazing. I have all his stuff... solo, with Deep Purple, James Gang, Billy Cobham etc... His 2 solo albums and the live stuff put out by The Tommy Bolin Archives are killer shit.

There are many other guitar players that I do like out there and there a tons of greats but... FZ blows them all the fuck away. Nuff Said!!<br>FZ could play everything and anything and always never gave himself enough credit and his tones were never duplicated. Frank was one sick mother fucking axe murderer!!
