Rory Gallagher: guitar, vocals
Richard 'Charlie' McCracken: bass
John Wilson: drums.

Workshirted Irishman Rory Gallagher 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. 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.

In August 2000 a new edition of Taste was formed: Messrs. McCracken and Wilson plus Sam Davidson on guitar and vocals.
