Rory Gallagher remembered

On the 20th anniversary of the passing of one of electric blue’s giants, Bob Hewitt looks back on the Irish musician’s life and talks to Gallagher’s brother Dónal.

Head on down to New Orleans,
Prettiest place you ever seen,
Get on down to the river bend,
That’s where the music never ends.

Open your ears,
Don’t you feel good?
Get yourself one helluva shot of rhythm ‘n’ blues.

Go on down to New Orleans,
The greatest place you ever been,
Head on down to the river bend,
Dig the music of the Cajun bands,
Honky-tonk piano,
Make you feel good,
Open your ears,
To rhythm ‘n’ blues.
