Gerry Mc Avoy (Nine Below Zero)

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by God_of_bass, Sep 22, 2003.

  1. I saw Gerry at a recent nine Below Zero gig in Belfast, he used to play in the Rory Gallagher band, very tasteful blues bassist..a few good 'tricks.'
    However, he plays bass with only his index finger, I thought this was a little unorthodox..but then I figured, the bass is only 50yrs old, it can't be unorthodox..anyway, thats a different thread alltogether..
    Does anyone know his work, with Rory or Nine Below Zero?
  2. I thought he played with a pick with Rory Gallagher?
  3. He did only play with pick, in any videos I have seen, with the Rory Gallagher band..but at the belfast gig he was playing, exclusively, with his index finger and a Musicman bass.
    The drummer is the nicest guy I have ever met..
