Greg Boland, the legendary Irish guitarist, passed away late last week. His funeral will take place this Wednesday at the Victoria Chapel.
Greg was one of the most talented guitarists ever to tread the boards in Ireland. One of a musical family – the renowned engineer and producer Andrew Boland is his brother – he first came to attention as a member of the jazz rock outfit Supply, Demand and Curve (who also featured future recording genius Brian Masterson on bass, and composer Roger Doyle on drums). He also played with legendary funksters Stagalee, who blazed a trail across Ireland in the mid-1970s.
