When Page was reminded that Gallagher had beaten him in a poll of best guitarists in the world in Melody Maker 40 years ago, Page replied: "I really liked Rory and I had the pleasure of meeting him at Peter Grant (Led Zeppelin manager) our old manager’s office in the early days".

"He came up to reception with Peter Grant and we had a good chat"

"I liked Rory, he was fine guitarist and singer and lovely man and I know how loved he was in Co. Cork"
