Thanks a million Zanny great read :)

I like the part at the end, where Donal reckons that they'll be a "Rory Story Movie" coming soon :)
Rock On for Rory

I was pleased to read that Rory wasn't tempted to do a screen test for the role of Joey "the Lips" Fagan for the film The Commitments. (I've also read elsewhere that Alan Parker wanted Van Morrison for that role, but his meeting with Van did not go well.) Donal says in the interview that he was frustrated and angry at Rory's reaction after his meeting with Parker, and that he (Donal) was aware that Rory desperately needed to change his life at that stage. Well, while Rory did need to change his life, the character in the film that Donal politely refers to in the interview as the 'older gentleman' (Joey "the Lips" Fagan) was a sleezebag (e.g., he causes trouble by seducing the young girls in the band). While that would be no reason for an actor to turn down the role, I can see why a musician of Rory's calibre and integrity wouldn't go near it.

Being in the States, I was more than a bit interested when he mentioned Rory's guitar at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Do we know - just the Strat? multiple guitars? Hopefully a nice display showcasing the man!
I need dates to plan another road trip! (later this month going to Devil's Crossroads, been listening to a lot of Robert Johnson lately)
Thanks!! ss

Feedback from Rock and Roll Hall - do we push???

Hello,
Thank you for reaching out. Regarding your question about Rory Gallagher, it is really tough to say whether or not it will be exhibited as part of the Play it Loud exhibit which will be here at the museum from November 22, 2019 through September 13, 2020. We are still hard at work with the MET and private collectors and artists themselves to determine which items will be a part of the show in Cleveland. Play it Loud just opened in NYC on Monday and is an incredible exhibition and I highly recommend planning to check it out regardless, but if you want to know for sure about Rory’s guitar, unfortunately the best I can tell you is that that is still in the works and that you should check back closer to the opening at the Rock Hall. Thanks again and Long Live Rock!
