What band would Rory support just for a tour?

I read Rory would have liked to join a band just for a tour and then play their
music, if they were in need of help.

What band would have been the best/ most interesting for him to join?

I think The Band would be a good match.

Bob Dylan. Bob was Rory's hero, and once said his dream was to be Bob's "Michael Bloomfield", a la "Highway 61 Revisted", in a studio setting. But Rory would have loved to have been Bob's touring guitarist too, I'm sure.

I've never been partial to Dylan. I like a lot of his stuff, but usually it's when someone else has covered it. Something about his music, as though whatever he creates from his imagination, once it has been born, and someone else takes it, his songs unfold into beautiful creations. But I've never had any desire to see him live.

If Rory would have toured with him, that would be entirely a different matter.

And I think Rory would have loved to have been on the same stage with Bob Dylan. That is another huge plus. To watch Rory play, he radiated happiness when he was playing that guitar, and to watch him play you got to share in that happiness, it was contagious with him. Rory with Dylan would be a treat.

Interesting to think the other suggestion so far on this thread is The Band. The Band, for a time, was practically Dylan's backing band.

Rory, Dylan and The Band. My head just exploded, in a happy way.
