    I'm not too sure about the second book. The reviews on amazon are not great. They reckon the book mainly consists of stories told with pub mates and not so much about Rory himself. I guess it all depends on your outlook.. I reckon I will get the first book.

    I'm keen to get as much info on Rory as possible, I'll have another mull some time this weekend. :)

    Re: Rory Info

    Can't find this one on amazon.com, but on amazon.co.uk this book caught my attention:

    Riding Shotgun: 35 Years on the Road with Rory Gallagher and "Nine Below Zero" - by Gerry McAvoy & Pete Chrisp

    I haven't bought it yet, but I hope to soon.

    PS the best resource I've found for Rory info is the RoryOn archive,

    http://www.roryon.com/articles.html

    Which has hundreds of articles and interviews from over the years.

  • wow!

    I've just posted that petition to everyone I know ;)

  • Cheers, it all helps :)

    You may have already seen it, but there's a good interview (or part of one) here,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR4XnSLc-sY

    Rory talking about his thoughts on his music and the music business. It probably says more about him than a lot of the stuff that's been written about him.

    Excellent, he already has quite a few things named after him, but an airport's a bit more noticeable. I like the idea of his name appearing on arrivals & departures boards all over the world. :)

    This months Guitarist magazine gave Live At Montreux 5 stars and a nice write-up, you can read it on the official website

  • I'll second that Blue-day, I'm starting to exhibit withdrawal sympoms!

    Sorry Rock 69, can't mail vids, but I recommend the Montreux and Irish Tour 74 DVDs, which are available in your neck of the woods, and the Complete Rockpalast set and Live in Cork, which you can order online from further afield if your DVD player will cope with region 2 Pal DVDs. Or you can get them on ebay.

    Unfortunately I've had to remove my vids from Youtube because some Hamburg copyright holder complained. :(
