Hi all

Been a Rory fan since secondary school when a pretty girl I fancied told me about this great guitarist who talks to his guitar, I immediately went out and bought Live in Europe and Against the Grain and never looked back!

The last time I saw Rory was in the Olympia in the 80's and he was still rocking the joint.

I found out about this site when I was looking for information on Rory's Eggle signature guitar (having an Eggle Vienna Pro myself), I never knew there was such a wealth of information here about Rory (but not that guitar), my second foray here was when I was having an argument with a mate about whether Jimi actually says that Rory was the best guitarist, I won thanks to Daves post (first time I met Dave was at a Parchman Farm gig where he blew everyone away!).

Anyway, lovely site, nice to be here :)

Thanks for the links to those articles Roberta, I couldn't find them at the time, but I subsequently found the second one and posted a pic of Rory with the guitar, the first link was a very interesting read, thank you very much for that! :)

Thanks for the replies guys :)
