But help me pleeeazeee, do you know the song by Gary where he mentions Rory and Phil?

Is this a song with Rory in the lyrics, or a live show where Gary talks about him?

In the BBC Radio 2 biography Gary is saying a Phil ? tried to help when Rorys health was failing .In the background Ghost Blues was playing (had to check on the Fresh
Evidence album).

Yes, it´s a song where Rory and Phil Lynott (?) are mentioned. When the song was playing you could see notepapers and I saw Rorys name in the lyrics. I will look through Garys catalogue on Spotify if I can find it and I will tell you if I do. Sorry if I explane badly. :oops:

I found the song!

Its called "Business as usual" and it is on "Dark days in paradise" from 1997. The lyrics is here:

"Business As Usual"

The pink crucifix with the ivory Jesus I wanted
The man with the blood on his hands as I ran from the river
Kissing my cousin, before they took her to the graveyard
Trembling at night from the violence I heard from my bedroom

These are my memories
These are my memories, coming home

Called up at school `cause my hand wasn`t there to say "present"
Running the gauntlet outside the Club Rado at dawn
Rory and me without a spare string between us
Catching the last bus halfway through "I`m so glad"

These are my memories
These are my memories, coming home

Philip and me and "the brush" riding round in a transit
The Bailey, the Strangley`s, the smoke and the speed and the acid
I lost my virginity to a Tipperary woman
A heart that was broken, but it wasn`t the first or the last time

These are my memories
These are my memories, coming home

Under the wings of the man they called Green, I found freedom
Three children, one wife, a twist of the knife and a scandal
Divorce, separation, some kind of salvation came lately
So many have gone, but I know it`s just business as usual

These are my memories
These are my memories
These are my memories
These are my memories
These are my memories
These are my memories, coming home

These memories keep coming back
These memories keep coming back
All those years ago
All those years ago

Also contains references to Peter Green, Gary's old band Skid Row https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skid_Row_(Irish_band), and the Maritime (Club Rado) [also the title of a short instrumental on IT74]. The Bailey is a bar in Belfast, and I just found out that the Strangelys referred to are an Irish band called Dr. Strangely Strange who were involved in Gary and Phil's early musical careers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Strangely_Strange
