Re: Turncoat McAvoy Again Slanders Rory

There's an article in the Irish Examiner that just came out today (I think.) Looks to me like McAvoy is doing "damage control" after all his bad-mouthing. I'd put the link in here, but I'm basically a Compu-ramus. I guess if you just pull up "Irish Examiner" Oct. 21 (or maybe it was 20,) it should come up? :roll:

I read the article Mark, it is fairly inoffensive, just an interview, nothing I saw even controversial. Granted I just skimmed it, but it seems pretty neutral to me. I'm not a big McAvoy fan, but the article is pretty bland. I only posted it because it seemed noteworthy.

Photofinish, this thread was intended, before being derailed, as a heartfelt tribute to Gerry. For what it was worth. Peace.

:D It's the other thread that Photofinish was upset about I think, but I'll fix it when I get home to my own PC.

Yes, I understand that. I meant that this later thread addressed what Photofinish was looking for, a pro Gerry thread. Anyway.

Didn't mean to start up a brouhaha - just thought the article sought to vindicate McAvoy against some of the bad remarks he allegedly made about Rory. He was with Rory for a lot of years and is a fine bassist. If Rory didn't think so, would he have kept working with Gerry for such a long time? I think it best to take everything one reads that claims to be a "Quote" with a grain of salt. Just because it's in print or on the Internet doesn't make it true.
I say, McAvoy's a joy and Rory's a glory!
