PORTRAITS OF RORY (Book Bundle - Number 1 of both editions)
THIS IS FOR NUMBER 1 OF BOTH EDITIONS, PRESENTED AS A COLLECTORS BUNDLE. ONLY 1 COPY AVAILABLE.
Portraits of Rory features the legendary Irish singer, songwriter and guitarist Rory Gallagher. The “People’s Guitar Hero” who revelled in his anti-star status to become an outstanding writer, player and live performer and whom Joe Bonamassa has described as “the Rocky Balboa of guitarists”. Rory Gallagher truly came alive on stage and this new, coffee table book captures Rory as his best through the lens of some of rock’s greatest photographers.
Featuring hundreds of classic and unseen, carefully restored, black and white images of Rory rehearsing, recording and of course, playing live at a series of stunning, unforgettable shows. Legendary guitarist Bernie Marsden has written a personal essay on his thoughts of Rory, and the book is a love letter to one of Rock’s most enduring spirits.
