Vocals, guitar
Gary’s extraordinary talent was obvious from the moment he appeared on the professional music scene at the age of 16 as a stand-in for his own guitar teacher. This proved to be only the beginning of a career that has paired him with the likes of Les McCann, Hound Dog Taylor, Vernon Garret and Bill Black — just to name a few.
