I'll start from the top of the list with ..

John Lennon:
He first saw Rory with Taste at the Marquee Club in London. I believe he said something on the lines of " He was a fan and that Rory and the band had a great future "

Comedian Bill Hicks:
"He'd listen to KISS and Rory Gallagher until his mother called him down to dinner. He played Gallagher's Deuce so much he wore it out and had to buy a new one."

Not sure whether this should go here or under the review section ;) - I don't normally follow Twitter but in the course of googling something else Rory related, I found that Slash has tweeted his enthusiasm for Notes from San Francisco. So he's obviously still helping to spread the word.
