This was the day 41 years ago. Least we forget. That Rory was voted the best guitarist of them all :)

I'm sure Rory's win was announced (possibly informally) way before the end of September per the date on that image. The reason I say that is because of the celebratory gala concert at Liverpool Stadium on 14th June 1972 with Nazareth and Roxy Music supporting. I remember that gig very clearly. It pains me deeply to think that at the time, no-one had any idea of what would follow exactly 23 years later ... Here's a picture from that gala concert to celebrate Rory's win ...

That's when Rory was on top of the world. That's how I remember him, and IMO it's the way he wants to be remembered. It never occurred to me, to any of us, that Rory would go through so much later in life. But it doesn't take much for me to see that young, vibrant artist even within the older man on the stage all those years later. The beauty in his spirit, his soul, was still there and very easy to see. That's how I will always remember him. :D
