Just finished watching this, what a great program! Good coverage of Rory too. It makes you realize how much music and Irish musicians influenced the peace.

At youtube already? that's great. anyone else think the Isle of Wright footage looked very clear as if it had been polished up... maybe ready for a dvd release? Or is that just wishful thinking of me?

The Tale Two Cities is a good documentary how the rock/blues/jazz developed roots in Ireland. It was hard to believe the church was so against it. Rory, Van and Lynott were pioneers. I am glad a good segment was devoted to Rory. Also Sinead Conor...what a rebel. I love woman rebels! Yeah! Subrata.x

That's a good point about the church - made me think of Rory being beaten by the monk - that's right, isn't it? A monk teaching at his school beat him for playing a Cliff Richard song onstage?
Sinead did the show in her jogging bottoms and fluffy booties slippers :-D

I had heard it is because they found out he was playing guitar in one of the showbands -

http://www.subba-cultcha.com/features/remembering-rory-gallagher-interview-with-donal-gallagher/

excerpt:

"He got a hard time in Secondary school even though he was a good student, because he was so hell bent on being a musician. He was playing with a professional band by the age of fifteen, going to school and doing his homework (laughs). One night the band he was with were picked on by the audience, as the headliners didn’t turn up. It was almost like the Blues Brothers scenario, they smashed the band’s gear up onstage. It was dreadful for him, he got ill from it. When the school heard about it in the paper… well, a teacher attacked him when he went back to school, saying that he was a liar. Playing the devil’s music was not popular at a religious school! Our mother went in and took him out of there, moved him to somewhere where the headmaster was more accepting of his musical work. The day he completed his exams, the equivalent of A Levels, he boarded a flight to Spain to play in the US airbases. At the age of seventeen! That was his whole thing, getting out there and perfecting your craft."

That they had injured Rory pretty badly by beating him with some sort of thorned switch, and when his leg became infected later, Donal intervened and told their mother what had happened, and she put a stop to that.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b054xp83 This is the link but you need to download BBC i player to watch it. Subrata. Maybe Rory's website could stick a clip on?
