Yeah, I was at the San Francisco show. First time (of only 3 total) seeing Gallagher. A great show, jam packed club. Rory played a long show and ran around all over the stage, giving it all he's got (I found out later that was par for the course for Rory). Afterwards, almost everyone cleared out of the club, only about 3 people (myself, a girl, and someone else) wanted to meet Rory. Someone, maybe it was Donal himself, told us to just wait, and he'd make sure we got to see Rory. After a very long wait, the guy (again, it may have been Donal) ushered us backstage into the dressing room, and sitting there in the middle of the dressing room, RORY GALLAGHER, clearly exhausted and sweaty from his performance, yet unbelievably still willing to meet any fans who wished to talk to him. I'm afraid I don't remember most of the conversation, and I wasn't enough of a Rory fan at the time to ask truly informed questions, but I do remember asking what he was working on, and he said he had some new material either in the can, or that he wanted to record, but he wasn't sure when it would be released. I said it'll be on Chrysalis, though, right? I was shocked to hear Rory tell me that no, he wouldn't be with Chrysalis any more. There was a bit more conversation, and the girl that was there asked him a few things too, but that's all I really remember.
I saw a lot of shows at the Stone, but Rory was the only guy that ever let me as a fan backstage there (not counting John Cipollina, who in addition to being a great guitarist, was also a friend of mine, and even then I only got backstage at the Stone once or twice to talk to him. I got backstage at a lot of Cipollina's other shows, but at the Stone, not so much.)
