Record Collector

"The man who SWEATED ROCK’N’ROLL

Generations of rockers of every stripe would come together for one event: a Rory Gallagher gig. That ritual is long gone, along with the man himself, but the feeling lingers on for thousands of fans touched by his unfussy, unglittery artistry. Gavin Martin recalls the ultimate tragedy and undying triumph of Ireland’s greatest rock icon Rory Gallagher’s 1961 sunburst Stratocaster is aa prized rock’n’roll relic brought out of storage for special occasions."

A very good and personal article in the latest issue of Record Collector.(July 2011). link to the website (not the full article available)

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

I think I still have original Guitar Player magazine from the '70's with Rory on the cover (have to dig around). Has that already been posted, or should I make the effort??

Will do!

I just found it and will scan it in.....

Should I post it in this thread as attachments or would it be better to post links to it on something like photobucket?

I'll try just posting some attachments direct first - let's see how that goes. I have higher resolution but I reduced these JPGs down a bit to keep the files down to about 500KB each. Even that might be too big to post - or might not be hi-res enough to read, I'm not sure.

I will open a new thread and try posting the article there. Hopefully it will work and you guys will be able to read it as is, or download the JPGs yourself and zoom them on your own PCs.

Take a look at my new thread and let me know how it looks guys....
