In an interview I produced with Frank Zappa in 1975 he was quizzed on the guitar players of the day. For most of the named guitarists only Rory Gallagher received plaudits from Zappa, who was certainly no slouch himself on the 6 string. Rory has an impressive catalog of great music. He was an exceptional musician as well as guitarist. His live shows have left an indelible mark for me.
