Rory Gallagher and Jack Bruce Live!

Rory Gallagher & Jack Bruce Live!

Rory Gallagher & Jack Bruce, two outstanding musicians performing together on one stage. Furthermore, this video of “Born Under A Bad Sign” is live from Rocklife in Köln, Germany circa 1990. What a joyous occasion this must have been for all that experienced this collaboration live.

One of the many things I’ve always admired about Rory is his pure respect for other musicians. As you can see from this video, he allows Jack Bruce to take the reins and run with them. Furthermore, he was an incredible talent that we sadly lost too early. Still today, his guitar playing influences and inspires guitarists all over the world.

Jack Bruce & His Legacy

While on the other hand, you have Jack Bruce, also someone we lost too early and still a major influence on bass players today. Plus, he was involved with one of rock’s greatest trios, Cream. Enough said!

Yes, he was also a member of Manfred Mann, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, as well as Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated, Gary Moore and many other bands! Both of these guys are true legends who made a serious impact in the world. Below is another video from the same performance. Enjoy!
