I found the quote you refer to, but can't find The Word article. You have me interested! From Ross' diary
London to Los Angeles today. Flew United 935 to Los Angeles. Read an old copy of The Word which had a great feature on Rory Gallagher and Glen Hughes. Rory I knew fairly well from around 1971 onwards. I'd worked in a guitar shop and even sold him his Moserite Twin Neck Guitar (for £160). He was, and I mean this, the NICEST most humble musican I have ever known. I read the Word article and got upset. Maybe it was the Percodan and wine which did it BUT Rory Gallagher was so great he should be cannonised. Really people love Lady Gaga - I love Rory Gallagher...
