In honor of Irish guitar hero Rory Gallagher, we thought we’d collect clips of a few of his most creative and energetic guitar solos from the late Seventies and early Eighties.

Luckily, it turns out someone on YouTube has already done all the heavy lifting! The clip above actually includes the best parts of most of the clips we collected earlier today.

Gallagher received a liver transplant in 1995 but died of complications later that year in London at age 47.

Performances:

0:00: Shadow Play (Montraux, 1979)
1:19: Moonchild (Montreaux, 1982)
2:12: Follow Me (Belfast, year unknown)
3:27: Shinkicker (Montreaux, 1979)
4:08: Bullfrog Blues (Rockpalast, 1977)
4:41: Tattoo’d Lady (Rockpalast, 1979)
7:42: I Take What I Want (Cologne, 1976)
