Coinciding with the fifteenth anniversary of his untimely death, RTE will screen a definitive documentary on Irish rock guitarist Rory Gallagher tomorrow night.
'Rory Gallagher is the musician who, without question, is one of the greatest torchbearers of driving, effusive rock and blues world-wide. Directed and edited by Ian Thuillier, 'Ghost Blues' examines Rory's musical stature and the special influence he had during his short but prolific life on international blues and rock guitarists, including contributions from Slash, Bill Wyman, The Edge and Johnny Marr.
'Unprecedented access to the artist's own archives and rare audio interviews tell the story of how a talented young musician from Cork City battled his inner demons and became one of the most respected blues and rock guitarists in the world. The film evokes unforgettable concert experiences for those who were lucky enough to have seen Rory live...'
