    Man, we lost a good guy today...long time club owner on the Houston blues scene with the Local Charm Club on infamous Telephone Road....a huge booster of the Musician's Benevolent Society......

    But above all that......my friend.

    A strong stout guy with a ready smile and a bear hug, if he was at your side or better yet, behind you, at a packed Continental Club show...you didn't have to worry about being blind side 'bumped' or someone walking on your feet....

    Lost to cancer, at far too early an age.......I'll miss him.

    One of those guys you'd know you'd see, at any significant show...touring artists like Buddy Guy, local talent like the Road Kings, Jerry Lightfoot playing "Mr. Blister" his guitar...Rory was always there, if only for a little while...."checking the ties that bind' as Robert Earl Keen would say....

    Man, I'll see him for the rest of my days, out of the corner of my eye..only to turn and find he's not really there.

    I dreamed I was chatting with him last night, and strangely....remembered it after waking this morning..

    Godspeed my brudda......who's gonna watch my back now?????

    *tear falls, down my cheek*

    Sorry for the loss of your friend Allen, thats a bad one. My father passed away due to cancer 6 years ago. Its not fun. If you want to meet up at the Continental for some drinks some time let me know, I've been there a few times and dig it. Once again, sorry for the loss.
