I really liked that article. And I've seen clips of Rory wearing the white Levi jacket, it's so nice to know the story behind it.

I saw Rory play at the Starwood, and it was the year that Tattoo was released. I wish I could remember the exact date, but I remember the night itself. It's funny, you think you'll never forget times like that, but the details, the dates, they get all jumbled up in memories so so easily.

Rory, Rock Goes to College- Does he appear to be wearing a white Levi jacket there? :D

Yeah lovely Rory story there John. Thanks for putting it up here on LT :)
Think I'm gonna have to get my white-ish Levis jacket out of the wardrobe, now the warm spring - summer weather is coming hopefully :)

Rock On for Rory

How nice to see a new Rory interview, and such a lovely one at that! Goes to show there are still more stories to be told. :D Isn't it amazing the effect that Rory had on the people he met, however briefly? He was so much more than a brilliant musician, he was a genuinely good man. The world could certainly use a few more like Rory right now.

This story made me cry a little. It's so lovely. He was so happy with a white levi jacket. What a great experience that was for the interviewer. Rory really was very special :)
I'd love to have a pin like that. I wonder what happened to the other pins in the box?

I was thinking the same thing, what Did happen to those other pins? Some lucky friends and fans have them safely tucked away no doubt. 8-)

If you read the comments below the article, there's actually one from Donal. He mentions the pins were made my a jeweler. I imagine they were a fairly limited supply.
