“My favourite modern bluesman.”
-Joe Satriani

“Davy Knowles has immersed himself in the styles of many great players, emerging with his own brand, and playing with a smile on his face.”
-Bernie Marsden

“ Davy Knowles plays the blues with the sincerity of someone twice
his age.”
-Daniel Eriksson

Gerry McAvoy played with Rory Gallagher for 20 years from 1971–1991. Because of this he has a great insight into the man and his music. Gerry played on every album Rory made, and wrote a book about his experiences on the road, including his time with Rory. The book is titled “ Riding Shotgun.” Brendan ONeill played with Rory from 1981–1991, on "Jinx," "Defender" and "Fresh Evidence."
