John Wilson is one of the most respected musicians on the Irish music scene. In the 1960s when he started to play drums. He was part of the first wave of Irish musicians to help put Irish rock and blues music on the worldwide stage. 

John played in many bands who where leading the scene in Northern Ireland and throughout, from MISFITS to THEM with Van Morrison.

 

After playing the London club Scene with THEM John was asked to return to Ireland to  play in a band 'The Sounds from Omagh', after the two weeks they asked him to stay! An instant friendship with their guitarist Richard McCracken led to them leaving the band and forming the band CHEESE.  

Cheese spent most of the time working the London club scene, While playing with Cheese Richard and John where asked to join up with guitarist Rory Gallagher in his band TASTE, this was an offer they could not refuse. 

 

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. 

 

John Wilson has formed a band to play Rory's Music Rory's way, John Wilson

John is joined by Sam Davidson a well known singer and guitarist in the NI Blues scene. They are joined by bass player Alan Niblock to make up this iconic trio.
