My new avatar of you-know-who ... the usual suspect on this site ... was taken in 1976. The summer of 1976 was a scorcher and it went on for over 3 months ... This is how I choose to remember him, although I hadn't met him then, but I have very fond memories of him later on, sitting in a bar or pub, with a pint just shooting the breeze :D :lol: :lol: :lol:

I really enjoyed the interview on my Blackberry. Its interesting writers are said to be frustrated rock musicians! ;) No I look forward this new book. I can't really discuss the books Rory loved because i never read them. My genre being the Supernatural. I have read CAPO by Peter Watson and I loved that. Ian Rankin is right in the fact that writers observe a lot and I do see things differently from other folk and your mind is always making up storylines - thats what attracts me and I love using the power of imagination since I was a little girl. Interesting about the hotel incident and all those police. Hope Donal and Ian were ok.

When I heard about Rory trunk of books that use to travel with him that what got my interest! Talk about my love of books. :lol: :lol: This would have been a treasure trove for me!!! I would have been the first to grab the trunk of books!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: What would have Rory thought? :roll: :lol: :lol:

No on a serious note I would have love to have sat with him in London outside an old pub and talked to him about books and literature in general. I especially love poetry and writer cafes and there are always writers around. Perhaps he could have joined us for coffee and we could have all discussed books. Yeah that would have been nice!

Yes Flamenca that avatar is nice. Very handsome looking man there indeed! ;) :D :D :D

In 1976 I was two - just learning how to walk and Susie was just born. :D

Crime novels are really big now and I went to a Crime Writers Evening on the 30/08/2013. Historical crime is very popular. My friend Leigh Russell Crime Books have made her into a famous author! I really don't have the desire to write crime even though I did work for the Serious Fraud Office, CPS and Magistrates at the beginning of the Millenium before my life changing experiences. Anyway I better read the Millenium series of Stieg Larsson's books cos I know my cousin Anjan will start to grill me "Have you read it yet?" "Er ....well no" and then we will start bickering. Family eh? :roll: One good advice that one of the crime writers told us was "Write a book worth writing and worth reading". Also crime novels always have something to offer readers - how the crime is solved. I do love Agatha Christie and Ruth Rendalls books. The history of detective stories exhibition at the British Library that I went to for my birthday was really good. Rory would have loved it! Subrata. x

Why don't we start a unique thread and discuss the books RG loved? x

That might be an interesting thread- sort of like Oprah's book club, only a Rory's reading list sort of thing- but

1. Where would we get a definitive list of Rory's books, and

2. Some of those books can be a bit gruesome. I'm kinda used to it, I grew up reading horror, mystery, sci fi, and crime stuff. I think Rory's focus was more on crime and espionage, but what I mean is- some of that stuff is not everyone's cup of tea.

I mean, true crime stories like In Cold Blood, and the graphic stuff that used to be printed in the true crime magazines like the Black Dahlia murder and the Keddie Murders could be very descriptive (in retrospect I'm surprised my mom let me read some of that stuff- but that was what she had in her collection), but if you're up for it, I'd be willing-

As far as a list goes, on page 142 of Jean-Noel Coghe's Book "Rory Gallagher: A Biography", is a photo of a couple of shelves of Rory's bookcase. But except for Peter Watson's "Capo", the rest appear to be all music books and biographies. Maybe someone with a sharper set of eyes can make out the titles. As a aside, although this biography is much criticized, it always had a certain charm for me. Anyway.
