oh yes I see what you mean about the psoriasis on his arms. That would have been due to his liver problems. The liver doesn't function properly and it is a reaction to unfiltered toxins in the body. I've seen it many times in chronic alcoholics. It's quite a painful condition and as you can imagine it would have been itching like hell! Poor Rory.
As for the Reitstadion, Stuttgart concert in 1994, I know what you mean. I often think there was something wrong with his head here. He did suffer from paranoia towards the end. It's not untypical for people with some kind of organ failure. He still played a good gig though.

I like to watch the latest shows Rory I really like, even though their health problems, I can not feel bad, seeing her struggle to keep doing what you love, it's sad on the one hand, but I like to see him sing with all your soul, your rage, your emotion to each end of the show, there are limitations that have been spoken yet like assitir the last Paris show is very good and inspired.

Very sad, but isn't he hallucinating?
A tragedy that he appeared on stage in spite of being that ill!

A later performance, a master at work. Do you think you can sing the blues without living the blues?

Peter Green thought Rory's interpretation of his music was one of the best he's ever heard, and I think it's because Rory did feel those words.
