New member - and an AC/DC connection...

Postby Timi Hendrix » 01 Apr 2015, 06:20

Hello to the forum...

I'm Tim, in Melbourne Australia.

Currently in my 9th month of listening to Rory to the exclusion of everything else.

The AC/DC connection to Rory is......

I was reading Mark Evans book about his time in AC/DC, and he said that back in '75 he met Malcolm Young & mentioned that he admired Gerry McEvoy's no bullshit bare-bones style of bass playing...Malcolm nodded in agreement, and Mark thinks it struck a chord with him because a few days later offered him the job as bass player for the band.

thanks everyone.

Just listened to Crest of a Wave from Deuce, and finally worked out that the word the Sound Engineer says to Rory at the end of the song is "Flawless" (Rory says he hopes that's the lucky word he always uses)

Did you already know that?

Aah, it was bugging me for ages what he said. Figured it out on the train to work.

Rory's guitar playing at the end of that song is just so beautiful

AC/DC and Rory both performed at the 1976 Reading Rock Festival, although on different days.
