Tommy is a self taught musician, picking up the tennis racket in 1968 and mock jamming to the sounds of the Beatles, the Doors, the Rolling Stones, The Who, the Monkees and many other 60s Rock'n'Roll bands. Realizing what a blast real music was, he dropped the racket and bought a Sears Silvertone guitar and amp for $22.00 in 1973. Although he would play in various projects, the real desire to play music did not flourish till his late 20s.

Left of center, sarcastic, Gallagher breaks the mold of the stereotypical singer/songwriter and instead revels in pushing the envelope by blending the rawness of a Blues Rocker and the softness of a balladeer with the edginess of rock and roll.

Tommy was an original member of Second Generation from 1987 till the band break up in December of '95. Second Generation played mostly in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs and Woodland Park, Colorado. SG opened for Shakedown Street, a popular Grateful Dead cover band, on several occasions and Chicago in Chicago.
