Opera House Blackpool Thursday 5th December 1974.
Probably the two most memorable days in my life as a Rory fan were Thursday and Friday the 5th and 6th December 1974.
Me and my mate saw Rory 3 times in 6 days on this UK tour. Four days earlier we seen him at Glasgow Apollo.
Having got to know Donal at gigs on previous tours and meeting and getting Rory's autograph at the end of the shows we thought it would be no problem meeting our hero again on this tour. But we failed at the Glasgow show due to stewards not allowing anyone to stay inside the building at the end of the show and clearing everyone away who were waiting outside at the stage doors.
So to Blackpool 4 days later. We arrived early, about 3pm, found the stage door and waited.
The pictures tell the rest of the story.

we told Donal we would be at the Newcastle show the following day, so he gave us both a stage pass to allow us easy access backstage at Newcastle.
this worked and I will post pictures of backstage at Newcastle tomorrow.

Lucky guy- And the photos are great- I forgot to say that before I suggested the photoshop thing. Before JimLED customized them. Wish I had the chance to have met Rory back then.

PS The photo of Donal carrying the guitars- that photo there's quite a strong family resemblance between the brothers.

- Please do not duplicate pictures in replies. Or put it under "spoiler" tag. Thanks Sorry about the photo thing- white letters don't show up very well on the background I usually use- didn't see that till I went to edit . . .

Sorry, sinner girl, not for sale. The strings are well rusted now and probably break into pieces if I tried to separate them.

Dec 1971 Hemel Hempstead UK. My friend and I got in for free for taking a crate of guinness up to the stage before the show. That was the day we became the "roadies". I remember saying we could do it the following night but Donal (Rory's brother) said something. I couldn't hear what he said but I am sure the second word was "off".
I have lost count the number of times I saw Rory Gallagher on stage, but the band never ever failed the audience.

Rory played from the heart. God bless him.
