This Day in Rory history: December 17

Thursday 16th December 1976, Glasgow Apollo.
I think this was the concert where Rory broke a string in the middle of a song and Tom came on stage and changed the string while Rory and band continued the song without stopping.
No pictures from this concert, but we got backstage to meet Rory.
Donal was still doing the sound for Rory at this time so we spoke to him at the mixing desk after the show and he told us wait at a door near the balcony boxes.
There were a few people waiting and some of them were taken in before us.
After 10 minutes or so Donal came and took us into a small room and told us to wait, and that Rory would be along to see us soon, as he was talking to his Glaswegian relatives at that moment. We could hear people talking from further along the corridor and assumed it was Rory and his relatives.
Rory appeared after about 5 minutes and he seemed pleased to be in a quieter space and have time to relax.
I asked him about Calling Card album which had been released earlier that year. He did not seem too enthuiastic about it saying that there were a few things that could have been better and that he was not sure about having someone else produce the record.
