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
