Unfortunately Eagle Rock has blocked the video here in the US.

I hadn't seen this article before, thanks for posting M.Felix. There do seem to be some inaccuracies in the interview, perhaps due to the translation from Dutch. For example, I've never seen Rory quoted anywhere about starting out on mandolin, he always said it was a ukulele. We all know Rory didn't pass away a day after contracting the staph infection, that he was in a coma for several days and Mark Feltham played harmonica at his bedside in hopes of bringing him round. It was an interesting read nonetheless.

Tom, have a look at the Rockpalast 1990 gig. Listen to his voice. It's brilliant here.

I apologize for being sloppy with my dates. Rockpalats 1990 was OK. But it was not quite the voice he had in 1982 for example.
His appearances during his last years were painful to listen to.

It would be interesting to see an analysis and verdict from a professional vocal pedagogue. I so much like all he did during cirka twenty years, but I'm not blind to the decline in his last years.
