Slash calls for Gallagher honour


image

Rocker Slash has long admired the legendary Irish bluesman Rory Gallagher and has recently tweeted his support for an online petition to get Rory inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

 

 

Rory Gallagher and Slash got to play together on several occasions; you can watch a video of Slash talking about this, and his admiration for Rory, in this video clip.

 

 

The online petition reads:

 

"We, the undersigned, declare that Rory Gallagher, Irish Blues guitarist and songwriter, should be inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame as soon as possible."
"Rory Gallagher is now eligible for induction as his first record was released more than 25 years ago. Rory has legions of fans the world over, and his music and guitar playing continue to captivate fans and musicians worldwide."
"Indeed he has influenced and inspired many artists including Slash, Brian May, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, John Hammond, The Edge, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, and was invited by Muddy Waters to play on one of his albums."
"A man who was a kind, humble and gracious human being, was held in high esteem by his peers, passed away in 1995 at the ridiculously young age of forty seven. He left behind an outstanding back catalogue of songs and his live performances are stuff made of legend. Rory Gallagher played the Blues with his heart and soul."
"No one played like him, no one sounded like him..........he was and still is.......a one off."
