Rory.

I'm still in the process of rediscovering Rory. I got a few of his albums on vinyl when they first came out, but they've been in storage for over 25  years now. I just received his Irish Tour '74 and European Tour (took two months to arrive from England) CDs. His live playing was insane!

There is a deluxe edition on CD, hope you got that one.👍

 I wish I had, but it was not offered on amazon.

 

I have it on my external hard drive where all my music is. I never knew how good he was till I saw a  performance of him on one of those Montreaux Jazz Festival DVD's.  He made me want to stop playing immediately.

As luck would have it, our bassist posted this new interview up this morning. Its mostly about Rory being approached to replace Mick Taylor in Rolling Stones.

I have to admit, I just knew the name before I started going on international guitar forums -didn't really know his work. 

I don't understand why he wasn't bigger in the US.  His playing is brilliant (IMO) and I really like his vocals.  The clip in OP reminds me of Jimmy Page - which makes me wonder if Mr Page "borrowed" a few things from Rory.
