VIDEO Band Of Friends "live"

Rory Gallagher's music reached a massive audience from Norway to Spain, from Japan to the USA, covering all parts of the globe and producing some of the greatest rock/blues albums of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Sadly we lost Rory on June 14th 1995. To his devoted fans and followers this was the ultimate tragedy.

The BAND OF FRIENDS is not a tribute to Rory, But more a celebration of his life and music. The band consists of musicians who played with Rory as his rhythm section for years and is fronted by the incomparable Davy Knowles!

GERRY McAVOY (Bass Guitar) played with Rory for 20 years, from 1971 to 1991 and, because of this, has a great insight into the man and his music. Gerry played on every album Rory ever made and wrote a book about his career, published in 2005, called "RIDING SHOTGUN". The book was also published in Germany, where it was titled "ON THE ROAD". Gerry is also known for his time spent with Champion Jack DupreeDeep Joy and Nine Below Zero.

TED McKENNA (Drums) played with Rory from 1977 to 1981. He has played with numerous rock legends such as Greg Lake, Gary Moore and The Michael Schenker Group just to name a few, and has recorded some of the top albums of our time. Ted is a "rock drummer's drummer."

Davy Knowles is a Blues Rocker originally from the Isle Of Man and currently resides in Chicago, IL. H
