Benny Gallagher: began his songwriting career as a staff writer with the Beatles Music Publishing Co.- Apple – writing songs for his lifelong friend and Apple Records biggest solo recording artist Mary Hopkin – Benny has always considered those “formative” days at Apple, and, especially, the constant encouragement of Paul McCartney, as one of the most important factors in his development as a songwriter.
He and songwriting partner Graham Lyle were invited to appear as support act and accompanists to Mary Hopkin at EXPO 70 in Osaka Japan.
1970 also saw his band McGuinness Flint storm the charts with his songs When I’m Dead and Gone and Malt and Barley Blues which featured on the ground-breaking BBC TV series The Rock ‘n’ Roll Years.
