I know Brian has great affection for Rory and he is not alone in this. I attach a picture of his statue in Ballyshannon, Eire. Good health to you all Kieran Connolly

and brian replied:

Ah! very nice to see that lovely statue of Rory ... great picture.

Having been lucky enough to spend a little time with Rory over the years, I think the answer to the question "Why didn't he become a superstar?" is simply that he didn't want to.

Rory was one of that rare breed of pure artists who honestly don't give a monkey's for fame or fortune. Rory loved his music, loved his guitar, loved his audience; and progress for him was finding a new lick, writing a new song, or just moving on to the next town to weave is magic on a new bunch of appreciators. So he did not play the fame game ... you could regard him as epitomising the very opposite of the X-Factor mentality. To Rory, his 'star' status was nothing. His music was everything.

All hail Rory !

brian really understood rory and what he was all about. and he's not only admiring him for being a great musician but also a great human being. on another topic someone said that brian recorded some rory songs after rory passed away, i sent him an email (he replies to the fans, well obviously not all of them cos he's a very busy man) and asked him about that but he didn't reply

as much as I like Brian as a person, and envy his experience greatly.. somehow I can't see Rory digging queens music. Or is that just me?
