rory re-discovered

Postby john » 07 Jul 2011, 20:15

Hi to you all, dont know where to start and dont want to be long winded but here goes anyway. I had an accident many years ago and had forgotten so much about music and who were my idols. a fortnight ago my mate was banging the hell outa my door at shouting "get up you lazy bastard and put sky arts on". I let him in and rory's irish tour was on, to say I was stunned would be puttin it mildly, I had been a fan of rory many years ago but had never seen him live or even any footage of him and as I said memory aint great. I watched this film of rory and I dont think i'll ever be the same again!. I wont use all the superlatives as I'm sure you know them all, enough to say, "rory,thank you from the bottom of my heart,the hour I spent watchin you play was spellbinding". I just sat there with my jaw dropping ever wider, my mate who is from lisdoonvarna county clare had tears ( I saw them,he denies it ) running down his face. Have tried to buy the dvd from this site but it wont accept my card, no probs though as I will get it from somewhere very soon.
R.I.P. Rory, you really were the best.

Warm welcome to the forum, John.
Thank you for sharing your story with us.

To re-discover Rory...I hope this never be happen to me in future. Once, when I started interesting of Rory and when I've got a lot of his DVDs ...I tried to watch them all during the day... and I've got "rory's overdoze"... and about 2 months I couldn't hear or stand any of his music...
