Rory Gallagher tribute rocking Burnley Mechanics

GUITAR playing does not get much better than Rory Gallagher.

And to celebrate the late great Irish songwriter’s life, original Whitesnake founder Bernie Marsden is presenting an evening of his music at the Burnley Mechanics.

Only a few years younger than Gallagher would be today, Bernie started out as a fan before becoming well acquainted with the man during the 70s.
