Where Rory lived between concerts

Postby Olav » 14 Nov 2012, 16:17

In the 80-s there was a long period between Rory's concerts. Sometimes for a few months. Who knows, where he lived as he didn't live in his flat in London?

Hi Olav, Rory lived near Ghent in Belgium for around 18 months I think it was?

And a lot of hotels, I think, that he and his band was able to find around.

As far as I know members of his band were living at their homes with girlfriends or wives. If you look at Rory's timeline there are 3 or 4 months between some concerts in 1980 - 1990. That's why I am interested because Rory didn't live in his London appartments. Thank you Jay Jay about Belgium, but maybe it was in the 70-s?

I think you'll find that this house is his home in County Cork. Look at the German Macroom film of 1978 and you'll see Rory sitting at the piano in the front room after the show ... I have another picture of him in this room on the sofa surrounded by many guitars ... but it's on my work computer and I'm at home at the moment ... also this house looks Irish in terms of the style of architecture ... not Belgian ...

Hi Flamenca, what does the inscription on the photo say? It's written in red on a photo with lots of red overtones and I can't quite make it out. . . the photo looks to be from the '70's. Did he spend much time in Ireland in the '80's? Seems he would have been a little less stressed if he was staying near his home at that time- I got the impression in the late 80's-90's he was away from Ireland more than anything?

That photo of the house was taken from Japanese journalist who came to Cork to take intervew with Rory. It was in 1976 or 1977, don't remember exactly, but I will check the article. It was his mother's house where he was spending time and had there some of his guitars. But "his private life was in Belgium" as it was written by this journalist. But it was in the 70-s. Rory spent time in Belgium because of the tax. And he was touring much that time. But it the 80-s he had long beaks between concerts. Still I wonder - where? Because I want to visit that places so much.
