Rory is Touring the Web

Postby dimi » 03 May 2016, 06:22

As a new member i was reading all the posts and comments in this forum trying to catch up.
I notice new members like me asking about other places to read more about Rory
and others to be disappointed that most of the photos in " photo finish " are not available any more.
i thought i could do something about it.
So i start this topic where members can share links with information's links with photos or even stories and interviews in other languages( than English )that someone want to translate and post.
For example i found some stories about Rory in Greek that i found nowhere else in the web and i will try to translate and post .
Everybody that wants to share a link is welcome but
PLEASE
If you want to make a comment about a link or a story
you can start a new topic or send a PM for questions.

Wow that's quite a job you've given yourself Dimi. Thank you for the links. I didn't know a couple of them. I could help translate from French or German as long as it's not pages and pages.

Ailish thank you for your willing to support this topic.
I really appreciate it.
I hope some other members open their treasure chests and post too.
As i promise this is the first story and i translate memories of

Joseph Avramoglou ( Event Manager and Journalist)

In early 1981 I went to Rory's and Donal Gallagher house in London,
to talk about all the details of the two concerts in Greece
and to get a Rory's interview for the magazine "Musical Express",
which i was D / Editorial Director.
After we agreed , Donal signed the contract.
We did the interview and Rory played a couple of new songs with his acoustic guitar .
Late in the afternoon i told them that I had to leave because I had another appointment .. .
When they asked me what appointment I told them that EMI London had scheduled
a faces to face exclusive interview with George Martin, producer of the famous Beatles ... just
to hear both to burst out laughing ...ha, ha, ha you will not go on George Martin they said
what are you going to do there ?
But ...I said is the producer of the Beatles, and moreover it is not right to stood up the man ...
You are not going anywhere they said
We will make something to eat now ...aren't you hungry?
And so they insisted i stay and din t let me go.
Donal went to the kitchen and made spaghetti.
We all ate with white wine.
I really loved the company but on the other hand i was thinking how exposed I was not shown at a scheduled interview
with such producer and that this would not look good in Greece.
Anyway i could not do otherwise because of the upcoming concerts Rory in Greece ... and this was more important!


Here is the interview in Greek

In the picture Rory ,me and my fried Aliki Ashman who previously did vocals in the Airforce of Ginger Bakers and was yearning to know Rory and so I d get along.

PS
I really don't know why Joseph said that.
As i find out Aliki and Rory have meet before as
the first thing she did as a vocalist was in 1968,a Studio Audition and recording with Taste.
There´s an unreleased acetate from that session.

Thank you Dimi. I can't get into that link because it's a facebook link and I don't have facebook (yet!). I would so love to see that photo.
At the moment I'm in Birmingham and using my cell phone for internet access. It doesn't always work. I won't be postingvagain until I'm back home on Sunday :)

Thank you dimi. I was able to see it this time. I have done a partial translation of the Austrian tv documentary interview with Rory called 'Ohne Maulkorb' for a friend. It's like 35 minutes long! As soon as I've finished it, I'll post it on here.
