I can't even begin to tell you how incredible it was to see Rory Gallagher live. Absolutely brilliant.
It is Rory's birthday today. He would have been 60 years old. And probably still playing strong.
If you've never seen or heard him play, check this out. Even if you have seen and heard Rory, check this out. It's from a really great documentary that my now friend Tony Palmer did called Rory Gallagher - Irish Tour 1974. I bought it and watched while I was putting the book together. It's an emotional film. And, yes, I cried. You can pick it up on Amazon for less than $13. Trust me...it's well worth it.
