Hi Folks!

Postby Carrierway » 23 Mar 2011, 14:37

Hi Folks!
I registered on here today after visiting this site many times.
As an aging rock,blues and Stratocaster fan I was speechless when, in about July 1995 I sat down to watch a re-run of “The Old Grey Whistle Test”, aired as a tribute to Rory Gallagher, who had died a month before.
Speechless because I, who grew up with Marvin, Greeny, Clapton, Beck, Blackmore and Moore, had never even heard of Rory!
I was amazed at his obvious natural talent and thought “my God how have I not seen this before” and “what have I missed?”
After reading some of the posts on here I find that I’m not alone in discovering Rory late in life. I just regret that it was too late to see him on stage.
I would like to thank all concerned for keeping his music alive.
Best wishes to all, - Dennis

Many thanks Guys,
to add to my previous post, I have made up for it since, collecting anything audio or video.
In fact Rory has been my favourite guitarist for some time now.
His raw talent and technical ability were outstanding, and as a strat player I marvel at the sounds and tones he extracted from the strat, without much in the way of effects. What a sad loss.
Regards, Dennis

Hi Dennis!

Glad to meet you here. It's never too late to discover Rory--or as you will read many times in her, to RE-discover him.
