A.U.N.T.Y. Anon 's
Lumberjack shirt version tribute for any fan by a fan
this year I was contacted by a fan who prefers to remain anonymous.
We'll call her Aunty Anon to give her a name.
(she says it has nothing to do with the old TV series "Man from
In a her first email, Aunty Anon wrote
" Hard as it is
to imagine, 2010 marks the 15th year of Rory's passing. Towards the end of 2009
I was laid low for some months, and if it wasn't for your Website ... well, it
sure helped the recuperation process and, of all things in the
world, before long I was immersed in a Rory Project."
result of this 'Rory project' was an amazing CD-R full of material
ranging from enhanced photos from various sources to some beautiful,
information packed PDF presentations. I've been a little
slow getting this posted to RoryON!! because of space
problems and a busy summer. Not that I've settled some of
the issues and have more time, I'll be posting various segment of the
CD-R to RoryON!!
Rather than describe this masterpiece, check out the Presentation. See the link to the PDF below
Aunty Anon's description of "Right Here With You To The End, Rory"
PDF is a bold attempt at a rough all-in-one Rory biography, from
Fontana to-and-post his passing; of text (article snippets,
discography, some lyrics, quotes, time line, accolades, etc.), with
many photos, and footage grabs ~ all credited where due so as not to
infringe on that pesky encircled "c". However, each image was lovingly
edited, repaired, and enhanced (restored*)"
"My goal was to offer "something for everybody". Apart from pics
arranged to complement each other and flow visually, there's data about
Rory's instruments, his sound, where he got it from, and an abridged
re-write about bottlenecks, etc. Then, enough food for wannabe's or
those who are forever in "air-guitar-in-the-shower" mode, eye candy for
the ladies, humour quips to lighten up the more sombre facts quoted,
and most importantly, his faithful team are also mentioned, right down
to his secretary. I had hoped to find pics of all of his various band
members, but didn't have the time (or budget) to hang around on the WWW
that long! However, they're noted 'n quoted, etc., and that includes
the tribute muso's, too, as well as celeb condolences, and gleanings
from regular fans and forums."
