RORY FANS & Friends
Thank YOU so much! This morning I asked you on FB to vote for RORY and he was at No. 39 in this chart below.
You've sure put RORY more where he deserves to be now. Just like he was 40 years ago in THE TOP 3 Melody Maker World Guitarists..

Unfortunately at the moment it's in reverse order of same guitarist as in 1972 Page [ 61 votes ] Clapton [ 47 votes ] Rory [ 37 and closing ]

Let's make it a repeat of 1972 where Rory was number one. So Rory fans keep voting please ;)

Funny how Rory goes from no.1 in 72 to no.5 in 73. I read somewhere I think in Marcus Connaughton's book he didn't attend the awards because he was in America and they may have seen it as a snub?
