Actually Rory played on a concert some years after the fall of dictatorship here in Greece and there was riots with the police.
Older people who watched this concert still remember that concert.
Maybe sometime to be on Donegal concert .

You guys are lucky to have had the opportunity to see Rory Gallagher in concert. He's a guitar hero.

But, wait. Didn't he die in June 1995? Or was it Zombie Gallagher? :D

I remember when the album defender came out my older brother who got me into Rory bought it it didn't leave the turn table for a long time . a great introduction is the 4 live album box set lets go to work if you can find it . I bought it about 12 years ago and lost it in the house for a while I was very sad over it then it re appeared . I was delighted to be reunited with my favourite albums I keep going back to it . I have to do some tidying and organising stuff in the house tomorrow I will give AC/DC a bit of a blast haven't played them in a while .

Sorry to be off topic, but I shall be in Athens in late May after my stint in Spain, Morocco, Italy and Tunisia. Is there any weekly/monthly Africa Twin meeting around Athens? if so, any date and address? Is Greek beer any good? ;-)

TIA

I will be there next Wednesday. Currently still in Tunis and embarking to Sicilia on Thursday evening. Shall be in Palermo on Friday morning. Then to Brindisi area and crossing to Albania, then riding down the coast to Athens. Taking it slowly. Therefore, I will be at your weekly meet on Wednesday 25th. One week ahead of schedule.

If somebody could allow me to use their couch for that night, that would be great. Or maybe tell me where to get a cheap room with bike parking.
