welcome to the forum, Douglas.
"I may be wrong, but I won't be wrong always" but as I heard he was able to make over 250 gigs per year.
Correct me.

Hi Douglas a very warm welcome to the Rory forum.

Yes Rory was not just known for being one of the greatest guitarists in the world. But also probably the hardest working musician of all time.
You've only got to look at his famous stratocaster to see he played the paint off of it

Here is a timline of his gigs over the years you can count them for yourself
