Well I'm here and will defend Joe B.
He is from upstate New york, Utica which is one very depressing place to be. I have family from there. It is a city from the past with little future. They are losing remington Arms next in Ilion, a little town outside Utica. What a sad state of affairs. a place for a real bluesman to learn his trade.
I saw Joe B solo and w Black Country Communion. Both great shows. Really liked the BCC show at a little club in Jersey, not far from Rorys last show in that state.
We are all individuals and don't know why people do what they do. I love hearing Joe do Cradle Rock personally. I hope more take up the cause , for my own selfish sake, lol.

I was thinking about how, early in his career, Rory got burned pretty much by his management, and quickly learned to take the reigns of his own career, make his own decisions and accept what came of them, for better or worse, since they were his decisions-



not Rory's lyrics, but the sentiment and independence in the lyrics made me think of him ;)

Great song! Thank you Cynthia! Never heard before.
It's reminds me a style of an old JF' song "Someday Never Comes"..

I was watching YouTube (Insomnia gives me extra TV time ;) ) and was watching Rory playing that Gretsch Corvette that Donal had gotten him in California. Such a pretty little guitar. I watch Rory play it, and I think about the story Donal told, about finding it in an L.A. pawnshop while Rory was in a music store across the street checking out the wares (I've noticed, a music store is to a musician what a toy store is to a 5-year-old, they can't resist going in one and looking at the new toys). I'm from Los Angeles, and there are some parts of L.A., in Hollywood and the West Side in particular, where there are pawn shops and music stores practically next to each other, like a garment district, but for musical instruments).

Donal has related the story before, but he found the Gretsch almost by accident, got it for a song while Rory was in a music store, Rory came back empty-handed, but Donal had bought the little Gretsch for him. I see Rory play it on YouTube and I always wonder, before it was Rory's, was it sitting in some teenage boy's room in the suburbs, perhaps used to play a few surfing riffs, or noodle around before its owner decided to sell it? I wonder what its original owner would say, seeing it in the master's hands, being put through its paces?



The song that brought it to mind was Prince's Little Red Corvette, but YouTube doesn't have permission for it's use. No matter, I'd rather see Rory play it than hear Prince sing about it.

Roberta do you refer to this clip ?


Musicians on a music store are worst than children at a toy store, they may forget even than the plane for the next gig doesn't wait for them :lol:

Heard this one today, and immediately thought about Rory, and his decision to move forward with his music, his way- 8-) Simple tune, but very direct and to the point. Made me think of Rory, although, what he could do with a simple tune like that, if he wanted to :shock: :roll: could almost be a topic for another thread....

I heard this Dylan song this morning when I was getting ready for work. I thought about the lyrics, and about Rory at such a young age, going out on his own to play music, determined to roam the world, and play music. And what did he see in those explosive years?

I think the picture that these words paint suits him and his vocation.

(here's a link to it, if it works)
