The man behind the guitar

First 5 successful enties will each get a signed copy of the new book posted to them.


Julian Vignoles, from County Wicklow and living in Ranelagh, Dublin, was educated at University College Dublin.

He worked for Hot Press in the late 1970s before joining RTE, where for over thirty years he produced factual and entertainment programmes on both radio and television, including two music series, Christy Moore Uncovered and The Paul Brady Songbook.

This is his third book and is being re-released in paperback.

Drawing on extensive interviews, Julian Vignoles casts new light on the familial, musical and other influences that inspired Gallagher, and on the complex personality that drove his career.

He reassesses Gallagher's song writing, often overlooked because of his dexterity as a guitarist. Crucially, Vignoles shows how many songs speak eloquently - and poignantly - about the person who penned them.

Meticulously researched, this portrait is the insightful biography that Rory Gallagher deserves, as revelatory for his legions of loyal fans as for curious rock and blues enthusiasts.
