Recorded by SDR 3  at Festival – Reitstadion, Stuttgart, 21, August, 1994, At the time of this concert, Rory was becoming very ill due to liver failure, hence the bloating. He collapsed on stage while performing in Jan ’95, had a liver transplant and died 14 June 1995 after contracting MRSA while still in the hospital recovering.  Regardless of his appearance and ill health, Rory remained the most amazing guitarist that has ever graced this earth.

A fantastic song writer too, who not only played the blues but wrote some of the most fantastic rock songs ever but some how he never really received the rightful recognition that he really deserved. Just listen to “Overnight Bag” or “Brute Force and Ignorance” “Souped Up Ford” the least goes on and on ,
