9/17/1988 London GB Kentish Town & Country Club

Rory asked me to come to this gig, but alas I didn't go ... the tickets had all sold out and all of the press tickets had been allocated. If I'd have been more street smart and less naiive I would have just turned up on the night and wangled my way in via the stage door because loads of press tickets never get used - people take them and then don't bother to turn up ... but I didn't because I just didn't have the bravado to do so. I promised him I would go to one of the gigs later in Nov '88 at the Dominion ... but didn't go to either of those either ...

I seem to recall this Leeds gig was pulled, after one he did at T&C in London didn't go too well - but that is just a dim memory.

I saw Rory quite a lot from 79 onwards - mainly North West UK gigs, and if I remember correctly, the reports from the T&C gig report was the first I knew he was ill ( I didn't relate the 1990 Cambridge folk festival cancelled headline slot gig to his later illness).

Saw him the last time on a Fender related gig at Manchester, ( I think it was in 1994) when Rory was the second half gig closer - he had the new band with him, much to my surprise ( pre google, so not much info unless you happened to see a press article, and he was never easy to find in the music press, as a rule)

After checking the Rory Timeline on RORYON, the ill fated Town and Country gig in London was on Oct. 29th, 1992. The Leeds Town and Country the next night went ahead as scheduled.
