are there any stories where rory stole the show from purple and fleetwood mac?
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

I was in Phoenix for this show. It was an ok show for Rory and took awhile for the crowd to get warmed up to him but they eventually did. I definitely remember him wearing a Levi jacket and played a pretty beat up Stratocaster and used the slide a great deal. The one thing that I'm not sure of is did he have a band or was it solo? Something tells me it was solo but I could be wrong. You'd think I would remember but hey, it was the 70's!!! It was a long night and more vagueness...I thought Savoy Brown was there too....for sure Fleetwood Mac had Bob Welch by then and they were good and Deep Purple was great. Horrible venue at the Civic Plaza and acoustics were ridiculous. Not sure how Yes pulled it off in the same place and they made it sound incredible. Sorry for the memory issues!!

25th April 1975 Lancaster University.
Me and my mate arrived late afternoon and found the stage door open. Sound check had just finished. Gerry was on his own in the hall. Had a chat with him about the tour. We saw Donal at the mixing desk and asked if we could record the concert as we had brought a portable cassette recorder. Donal let us set it up next to the desk. I still have the recording. It's not great. There is another recording of this concert going about done by another Rory fan which is better quality.
When the show ended we waited with other fans to get the band's autographs.
