Slash Pushes To Get Rory Gallagher Into Hall Of Fame

Slash Pushes To Get Rory Gallagher Into Hall Of Fame

Irish blues guitar legend Rory Gallagher made a tremendous impact with his songwriting and performing and ended up inspiring several highly regarded musicians across many genres. Now that Gallagher is legible for induction into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, fans are doing their best to get the blues hero in. One such fan trying to get Gallagher some recognition is none other than famous guitarist Slash.

"Please sign this petition to help get Rory Gallagher inducted into RRHF", Slash released a couple of days ago via Twitter.

The petition reads as follows:

"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."

Those of you who are fans of Gallagher can check out and sign the petition yourself at this location. (see link above)

Great initiative. But the "Now that Gallagher is legible" is kinda weird because Rory's career
as a solo artist started more than 40 years ago so he's eligble for more than 16 years!
A travesty that he still isn't in the RRHOF!

Long Live Rory Gallagher!

Clapton said that Rory is the one who got him back into the blues.

First of all ,IMHO, the RNRHOF is a joke. Does it really change the
stature,legacy, notoriety of an individual/band by being in there? Does it
make the fans feel better about that artist? When I think
of music one of things that does not come to mind is whether or not someone
is in there, belongs in there or whatever. Being a "member" of that does not make the band/person any worse/better ,raise the level of there achievemnets, etc..
It's what their body of work has shown and the quality, and its the fans
and people who enjoy they're music know how important that artist/band is, and it shows.
Thats all fine and good Slash wants to do this and their is
no doubt in my mind Rory Gallagher is one of the greats. But its not gonna change anything to be honest. The fans already know how great and what he has done.

Good for Slash, he's doin something good here. Yes, it's a joke he's not in, but it's worth pursuing. Induction could open up Rory's music to a whole new generation of fans.

Thanks for posting this. I signed it.

BTW, those who remember Dino here know that he was Slash's brother-in-law while he was in G&R. By all accounts Slash is a great guy - apparently he is still on great terms with not only his ex-wife, Dino's sister, but the rest of their family as well. I've never been married or divorced, but based on my parent's situation, I'd guess that is pretty rare....
