Cradle Rock - Rory Gallagher, 1975.

I hate to see Slowhand get backhanded across this blog, but the dude constantly gets one-upped. There's no denying it. 1972, saw Clapton sucking a solid second in Melody Maker's top guitarist poll behind this Irish bloke, Rory Gallagher. Rory must have been proud. His tombstone is a replica of that very award.


  1. Slowhand just got bitch slapped by Easy Dick Gallagher.

  2. Rory had great tone and lots of energy. Different type of guitarist. Rory was more of a Hendrix type player. Call it blasphemy if you want, but I'd of rather seen Taste in '69 than Cream.
