|Workshirted Irishman Rory with his battered Strat and a lone Vox AC-30 became immensely popular on the festival circuit, playing slide/nonslide on blues standards ("Catfish") and his own more rock oriented originals. A working class hero to his audience. Taste followed their first LP with the commercially successful "On The Boards" LP in 1970.
The song "On The Boards" has a lot of jazz influence. Two studio albums issued, then band split. Rory went solo and the rhythm section formed Stud with guitarist/vocalist Jim Cregan. Taste's live albums issued later on.
