Good news indeed (never enough Rory!):

Rory Gallagher: Ghost Blues Documentary



To coincide with the 15th anniversary of Rory’s untimely passing RTE will be broadcasting an hour long edit of the documentary ‘Ghost Blues’, at 10.15pm on Thursday June 10th.

The documentary is a study of the late lamented musician, and the full length feature is set for release on DVD in September along with a second disc of rare archive Rory Gallagher performances.

Not only will the documentary delight fans; it will appeal to a broader audience through the timeless qualities of the ‘gentleman’, his music and the unique approach of this much-missed authentic guitar virtuoso. His contribution to rock music has had a significant impact on both musicians and music fans around the world, despite his untimely death arising from complications following liver transplant surgery, at the age of 47.

The documentary by director Ian Thuillier, features rare tracks from his formative years with his first band, Taste, through Rory’s solo career as he single-handedly spearheaded the Irish rock movement, and in the process, blazed a trail for other Irish rock bands including Thin Lizzy, U2, etc. With guest contributions from those who knew him best; Donal Gallagher (his brother and manager) and his band members, Bill Wyman (Rolling Stones) to those who he inspired to become music greats themselves; The Edge, Johnny Marr, Slash etc, this documentary will add to Rory’s enduring legend.`

I haven't really heard alot of his music. I've heard that he was much better live than on record. I've also heard that Irish Tour 74' is awesome.

Well "Irish Tour '74" is a perfect start. And it's true that he was better live than in the studio but you could also say "he was fantastic in the studio but live he was even better"
because most of his studio albums are fantastic too and strongly recommended. Instead of cds you could also opt for the exellent Live At Montreux 2DVD or the even better Rockpalast 3DVD boxset ("Shadow Play"). Check him out !!!

The Rockpalast DVDs are ridiculously amazing. He plays Politician with Jack Bruce and with no rehearsal. Jack is shown humming the riff to him backstage and 20 seconds later they walk on stage and play it. granted it's not the hardest song in the world but it just shows the spirit of Rory and his willingness to wing it and play well even on a TV broadcast.

I'm a big fan of Rory and will always be, but I prefer his early stuff compared to his later years when he had more of a hard rock sound. But still, even with the hard rock sound it's still Rory.

I just watched Ghost Blues on RTE. It's very well done even though it was only an edited version. The main story is told by his brother who was his manager/roadie etc. It went from how he started playing guitar into Taste and his dislike of singles and pop satrdom into his solo career for the second half. It brushed over how he played with the Stones for a few days after Mick Taylor but Rory just wanted to be back on the road with his own band. The end was quite sad and touching, he was such an amazing player and there's loads of footage I haven't seen before. Other interviewe's included Bill Wyman, The Edge, Bob Geldof and Slash. Can't wait for the DVD!!!!!

Growing up in Ireland we were very aware of Rory's influence. He helped me hit the blues and stay clear of trad

like joebeacon I felt the rte doc very sad and shed a few tears. What a beautiful, humble, unassuming genius!
