RORY ~ The Beatles ~ Lennon or McCartney?

Postby Jay Jay » 06 Apr 2012, 12:57

With the newly discovered recordings and pictures of young Rory..
Someone suggested the passport picture of Rory looked like John Lennon.
Personally I think Rory looked more like Paul McCartney of The Beatles.
Which one do you guys and girls think he looks like or not??

Agreed absolutely Grace
but Rory at sixteen was doing what I was doing in my teens. When I first saw Rory and still to a point now .. Check shirt and jeans lol :lol:
Copying the way our musical hero's dress. Like he does in the photo above. White shirt tie with jacket Beatle-ish..
Until he rebelled from the Showbands and made his own impression and iconic image with Taste :)

Nice one Jim :)

Don't forget, just 3 or 4 years after that young Rory picture above. John Lennon was admiring Rory with Taste at the Marquee Club in London :)

Yes, there was so much happening in the music scene in such a short amount of time. Says a lot about Rory that he rose so fast. I can actually Imagine Rory and John doing a record together, since they both dug very deep into the heart for a lot of their material. A buddy of mine and i once did a "Rory style" version of imagine, with mandolin and harmonica. Lots of fun.

Regards,
Richard
