In the ‘60’s John Wilson started playing drums with one of Belfast’s most popular beat groups ‘The Misfits’ and after that ‘Them’, who with Van Morrison were the first Irish band to make an impact on the international scene. Later still, John was asked to join up with guitarist Rory Gallagher in his band TASTE. TASTE spent the next few years constantly gigging and touring and building up a massive fan base around the world. Successful albums, TASTE, ON THE BOARDS, and TASTE LIVE IN MONTREUX followed. TASTE finally ended with their legendary performance at the Isle of White festival in 1970. On the death of his old friend John was asked to play some gigs playing the music that Rory had written in TASTE. Tonight, original member John will be joined by guitarist Sam Davidson and bass player Alan Niblock. Like many other bands and musicians around the world they are helping to keep the music and memory of Rory alive.
