RORY WINS Classic Rock " INSPIRATION AWARD "

Nice to see RORY is still honored and getting awards after all these years :)

WINNER: Tommy Vance Inspiration, sponsored by Spinefarm Records – RORY GALLAGHER

One of the most acclaimed, energetic and best-selling blues-rock guitarists of all time, Gallagher’s passing in 1995 hasn’t done anything to reduce appreciation of the legacy he left. Just this month a unique collaboration album entitled Continental Op was released, including a novella written by crimes author and fan Ian Rankin. His battered old Fender Strat, on display this evening, has been played by Joe Bonamassa and many others, and it’s true to say that Rory will remain alive as long as his catalogue does. Two former members of his band, Gerry McAvoy and Ted McKenna, just won the European Blues Award for Band Of The Year. Fittingly they’re on tour in Ireland this very moment.

Rory’s brother Donal accepts the award on his behalf: “Ideally Rory should be here himself. It’s sad he isn’t, particularly since he played a couple of great gigs here. Thanks everyone for flying the Rory flag. This one’s for the fans.”

PS. For those outside of the UK that are not familiar with the name. Well Tommy Vance was a top BBC Rock DJ of his time. Who passed away unfortunately a few years back. I remember recording a cassette tape of his BBC Radio 1 Friday Night Rock show. He played a RORY track and afterwards. He stated..

" If this guy does not go down in history as one of the greats, there is no justice "

Rock On for Rory
Slainte, Jay Jay
