Well of course Rory is being beaten badly. No surprise there, considering this sites core readership. Guess I'm an old fuddy duddy, but all this shredding and technical brilliance has no soul or emotion to me. Its all noise and speed. Rory can break my heart with one bent note. To each is own I guess. Peace.

Sorry, but you asked . . . it's a pet peeve, and has annoyed me for years.

It is a great shame, but even in England If I mention Rory alot of people have never heard of him.

Excellent choice, I love his playing on that. It's almost too sad for me to listen to it though, but it is beautiful.

I must equally be an old fuddy-duddy, but that unfunny guy doesn't even deserve to share that name with Rory! And, trying to compare two guitarists with diametrically oppsosed styles - just not happening (and you all know who I voted for.) ;)

Don´t even know who Dimbag Darell is.

Just returned from Dubai and in my favourite bookstore I found a book named "Irish are comming". Dont remember the writer. I quickly Went through the chapter of artist, musicians etc. Where was Rory? First I tought nowhere but then I found his name in the last sentence in the same chapter. It was something like "Maybe I should have mentioned Rory Gallagher. He moved to London i 1970 and toured Ireland every Christmas...."

Nope, didn´t buy that book....

It's absurd to try and compare Dimebag with Rory. Dimebag was a great player, but he was a metal guitarist. It's like comparing Elvis Presley to Placido Domingo.

I know nothing of Kanye West, but I heard on a satellite radio station that on a recent recording he had Paul McCartney playing piano.
Apparently West's fans were tweeting about this McCartney guy that West discovered!! Kanye gonna make him a big star!!

sic.......
Thanks!! ss
