The Band consists of musicians who played with Rory throughout his career

GERRY McAVOY (Bass Guitar) played with Rory for 20 years; from 1971 to 1991 and because of this has a great insight into the man and his music. Gerry played on every album Rory ever made. He also wrote a book following his career, which was published in 2005. "Riding Shotgun" "On The Road" its German title.

MARCEL SCHERPENZEEL (Guitar) grew up with Rory's music and Gerry is quoted as saying "This is the closest guitarist to Rory you will ever hear"
(Wolfpin)

So as you can see this is not a tribute. This is the BAND

Rory's music reached a massive audience from Norway to Spain, from Japan to the USA. Covering all parts of the globe and producing some of the greatest Rock/blues albums of the 60's, 70's and the 80's.

Sadly we lost Rory on Jun 14th 1995, to his devoted fans and followers, this was the ultimate tragedy.

The Band Of Friends is not a tribute to Rory, more of a celebration of his life and music
