  3. Fantastique concert. Fantastique Rory.
    Le blues rock a perdu, hélas, un très grand guitariste.

  5. 20 Dec 1972
    I played the Brighton Dome with Led Zeppelin
    During the 1972 UK tour, Led Zeppelin played the Birmingham Odeon, local venue to John Bonham and Robert Plant. Unintentionally, John Paul Jones and I arrived very close to the kick off.

    Here at Brighton (John Paul Jones’ and my own Sussex territory) ironically John Bonham and Robert Plant were to arrive late too.

    The Brighton Dome was a really historic theatre venue built in iconic Regency palace style. However, we weren’t to play it again as we were banned - John Bonham damaged some ornamental trees as he left in his Aston Martin after the show.

  8. True Story: Jimi Hendrix and Rory Gallagher sitting in a Club together. A Reporter comes by and asks Jimi: “How does it feel to be the best Guitarist in the world” ? Jimi: “I have no idea, ask Rory….”
    Tells everything about Rory…

  9. Brilliant, I can’t wait to hear this.thank you, BigO.

    When I was in my teens, when those who checked out in 70-71 were sadly no longer with us and the big acts didn’t your much, it was Rory, Mott, Argent, Thon Lizzy and their like who provided live rock in the UK provinces.

  10. Rory did indeed have a giant Coc . I fucked him backstage at a small club he was performing at the very same year as this show 74 . That was the same year I was chosen to be a playboy playmate. Rory got lucky with me because our encounter occurred before my playboy shoot . After that i only fucked super famous rockers and other celebrities.. Rory was a only moderately famous compaired to some others .

  11. Many thanks, Saw Rory at the Rainbow back in the day, a true star and much missed

    By GMAL on Dec 20, 2018

  12. It was great to meet and shake hands with Rory G at Cambridge Corn X back in the day. Doesn’t sound any biggie now but then I was in my late teens and it really meant a lot - and still does. Argent and Edgar Broughton Band also spring to mind. Thank you for this.

  16. Man I sure was born too late . It musta been great being a groupie in the 70s Screwin all them hung rock stars ‘ plus all the alcohol and dope . It’s kinda boring these days .

  17. First caught Rory with Taste in 1969 in Milwaukee. Next time was on this tour in Chicago. Saw most every tour until his death. One of my favorite guitarists. Listen to his shows/LP’s weekly. Thanks for a show I thought I had but didn’t! All the best for 2019 everyone! PS: Bebe, save up, Mick is touring America with his big one in 2019! Probably worn out from Europe, though.

    By Johnny Kinkdom on Dec 24, 2018

  18. No thanks . Mick Jagger has a very small Coc . Plus he’s very old now . Keith has a giant Coc but is also old as dirt . Not interested ‘ been there done that ‘ many times .

    By Bebe on Dec 24, 2018

  19. I would like to find young ( hung ) rockers and bands to fuck ‘ but it’s different today than the seventies. They look at me like I’m crazy and hurl insults when I go backstage today . Thom Yorke once called me an old bag and chased me away with a wine bottle . Young people today don’t know how to have a good time . In the seventies the rock stars and bands were always glad to see me .
