Rory



[click to enlarge]


Friday afternoon. Slowly feeling my way into/onto larger surfaces. Using different pencils. Listening to Rory Gallagher’s first solo album. Looking out at the rain, and at the neighbor’s flowering plum.

Hey William - RORY G.-Point also is one of my favourites; he was a phantastic LIVE-Musician, saw him in Arbon (CH)-Open-Air end of Eighties it was so furious! And I have almost all of his albums... Your drawing is rocking and I understand now your 'Drawing-movement' a lot better... As a friend in Rory's paradise rocking greetings from Austria!

Rudhi, that’s great — I’m not surprised you know Rory’s music; but here, back in the day when he was active, especially in the Seventies, we never really heard of him. And so he was a more recent discovery for me. Be sure to look up his 1974 “A Million Miles Away” Irish tour performance on YouTube. Glad you like the drawing!

Yah, William, Rory's LIVE-Albums are best! Specially with 'A Million Miles away' I feel travelling in spaces into myself...

Went straight to Youtube and got hairstanding memories again with BULLFROG-BLUES at a concert in France 1980; that's Rory like a moonrocket...

William Michaelian said...

I feel the same way. His genius is uproryous....

The same to you, Aleksandra. I’m glad you like the story. Thank you — I know Grandpa will be safe in your care.
