Anyway, this guy gets in my face, he was drunk and loud - Jaegermeister loud - and I didn't even know him.
But now that I think of it, he did look a lot like Popps ...
I've never heard Rory Gallagher but when I was a kid I bought some Ten Years After albums and one was a live album with Alvin Lee absolutely smoking on the guitar.
But, I think Alvin Lee was also wasted drunk too when he was live. You could here him talking into the mike between songs it's like, yah this guy is wasted!!
That being said, his raw talent on the six string was impressive.
