1974 is the only time in his musical career from 1967 on wards .. That Rory had is hair similar to in his later year as Sinner Girl pointed out ..

Can I tell you the longer the hair is the straighter it gets because of the weight. As Rosemarie says also if it's wet or sweaty and layered it curls even more ..
Rory no way had a perm but maybe he did color his roots in later years ;)

irish tour concert is the most famous rory concert and certainly the one the most people watched out of all rory's concerts. but his hair in IT is not what i would say classic rory hair, it was a bit too short, i'm accustomed to his hair being longer like before '74 and after '74

That's right Kruno, anyone that followed Rory throughout the 70's and early 80's were a little taken back when Rory had his hair cut shorter in 1974 ..

I've followed Rory non stop for nearly 39 years now and the picture on the LIVE IN EUROPE album 1972 ..

is always as I'll forever see Rory now because that's how over ALL the concerts and years ..

RORY'S APPEARANCE WAS MOST CONSISTENTLY VISUALLY.. length of hair shape of face ~ check shirt battered strat..

EMPHASIS MINE

Hm, that brings to mind an interview I've read not that long ago.
Right now we're draining our glasses and, as a parting shot, I'm asking Rory why he isn't wearing his trademark lumberjack's shirt. Curiously, it's a throwaway question, which appears to disconcert him more than any other single subject.

"At the moment, I just can't wear them to be honest with you,” he says mournfully. "I know it's peculiar but it's just a psychological thing. That demin jacket and check shirt have become like a stigmata to me. I never treated it as a uniform but that's what it has become over the years, a uniform that I just don't want to wear anymore. Lately, I wear an ordinary black shirt and a black jacket when I'm on stage. Right now, I feel a lot happier in black."
You can look up the whole thing here: http://www.rory-gallagher-tributepage.de/rory1/rorygallagherstory.htm.

Perhaps that sentiment also accounts for his shorter hair - which was nearly uniformly long (apart from the that short '74 periode) his entire career and therefore automatically became part of his appearance - in the later years. Just a theory, though. After all many people tend to undergo some (visual) changes when they grow older.

Rory was not old when he passed away " 47 IS NO AGE " people are expected to grow twice this age now ..

BUT RORY was not a normal average guy.. RORY lived the life of X TIMES TEN any normal male would ever live.

30 US tours .. Gigging around the world more HARD WORKING than any other artist has ever done!
