There's an article in the Irish Examiner that just came out today (I think.) Looks to me like McAvoy is doing "damage control" after all his bad-mouthing. I'd put the link in here, but I'm basically a Compu-ramus. I guess if you just pull up "Irish Examiner" Oct. 21 (or maybe it was 20,) it should come up? :roll:

I read the article Mark, it is fairly inoffensive, just an interview, nothing I saw even controversial. Granted I just skimmed it, but it seems pretty neutral to me. I'm not a big McAvoy fan, but the article is pretty bland. I only posted it because it seemed noteworthy.

Photofinish, this thread was intended, before being derailed, as a heartfelt tribute to Gerry. For what it was worth. Peace.

:D It's the other thread that Photofinish was upset about I think, but I'll fix it when I get home to my own PC.

Yes, I understand that. I meant that this later thread addressed what Photofinish was looking for, a pro Gerry thread. Anyway.

Didn't mean to start up a brouhaha - just thought the article sought to vindicate McAvoy against some of the bad remarks he allegedly made about Rory. He was with Rory for a lot of years and is a fine bassist. If Rory didn't think so, would he have kept working with Gerry for such a long time? I think it best to take everything one reads that claims to be a "Quote" with a grain of salt. Just because it's in print or on the Internet doesn't make it true.
I say, McAvoy's a joy and Rory's a glory!
