Wikipedia : This day (June 14, 1995), in Cork, Ireland, died William Rory Gallagher, Irish singer and guitarist

Official Site : He shared his name with Ireland’s last native monarch, was born (to rock) at Rock Hospital in Ballyshannon, Donegal (March 2nd 1948) while his father was employed constructing a hydro electric power plant on the nearby Erne river.

@allmusic : However, it is the ghost of the late Jeff Buckley, one of Martin’s favorites, that haunts his sad, emotionally vulnerable singing.

@last.fm : Gallagher was known for his deep, distinctive voice, the boom-chick-a-boom or freight train sound of his backing band (Tennessee Two / Tennessee Three), his demeanor, and his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname The Man in Black.

@Discogs : Gallagher was a master on his Fender Stratocaster in playing the blues (as a born Irishman). He was also a stage beast (proof of which the various great live albums).
