Name That Baby
My late husband worked for a sound & light company, TFA Electra
sound, therefore we use to get VIP guest passes to concerts that
came to the city where we lived in Southampton, Hampshire, England.
We went to see Rory play at
the then Gaumont Theatre in 1980 there & afterwards met him.
Not really knowing of Rory or his band history in the 60´s as I
was a bit young then ! we got talking, we talked about lots of
different things and I remember finding him to be so interesting &
very down to earth. He noticed that I was heavily pregnant & asked
if I wanted a boy or a girl, I said, I just know it is a boy (
then they wouldn´t tell you what it was) He asked me if I had a
name for ´him´ I replied that I had just decided on the
perfect name & it would fit perfectly as my late husband was also
Irish, Rory of course. He said that he was honoured & that we
should stay in touch so he could catch up with how he was doing.
So my 24 year old son has an
unusual name & which is after a great performer, that I can say I
knew personally all be it for a short while as we never got
together again after that.
