RORY GALLAGHER - On the 25th anniversary of the death of the cult guitarist

06. June 2020


Twenty-five years ago, on June 14, 1995, Rory Gallagher died. The passionate blues guitarist, singer and songwriter wrote rock history - first with the trio Taste, and from 1971 under his own name. The Irish man's career collapsed in the eighties because he was unable to control his health problems, caused mainly by excessive tablet consumption. When the news of Rory Gallagher's death spread, a whole nation mourned: Ireland's musicians are heroes at home and are revered far beyond their fan base, even if they do not play typical Irish music.

The Ravenator

"The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories)" is Steven Wilson's latest prank. With his phenomenal third solo album, the Brit immerses himself in the past to redefine his own future. And Porcupine Tree will not belong to this group in the foreseeable future, as he clarifies in a conversation with eclipsed. In contrast to the ominous raven in the title of his record, Steven Wilson willingly provides information about himself, his music (and other stories).
