    I’d listen (or watch) this to get me motivated to finish my Corvette

    But really, ANY day is a good day to listen to Mr Gallagher!

    Definitely not alone. Huge Rory fan
     
  4. Me too ... I posted on the "What are you listening to at this moment?" thread regarding the 23'rd anniversary of Rory's death.
    I have plenty of Rory's vinyl and CD's :)

    Cheers, Barrie.

    I'm still trying to get "for the Last Time" down. I don't know if I have a favourite but that song is near the top of the list...

    Barrie, time your trip right... I always miss it. :(

    My older brother got me this a little over 40 years ago. I had no idea who Rory Gallagher was but man am I glad he got me this.

    Actually it wasn't. Although I'll bet it was at one time.



     
  16. Rory had a number of guitars but that Stratocaster was his main axe. There's a story behind it as well.
    If you read thru the "Guitars and Equipment" section on Wikipedia, it explains that worn to the wood Stratocaster.

    OK. Now It's Friday. Rory talks slide:

     
  20. Been listening to the Fresh Evidence CD lately. A couple from that release.





    Happy Friday. Cheers, Barrie.
