“I’ve got a 12 string Harmony Sovereign, which I use quite a lot on recordings – I had the neck taken off and put back on to get a better action.”
International Musician and Recording World, December 1976
“When the interview was over, we tried to leave his house, but he came out to the sunny garden with his Harmony 12 string in his hand. It was nice weather day. He had the complete look of one of those guitar freaked-common nice guys, you can find everywhere. When he stood behind the clear blue sky, a bit of lake flavored-sweet air and green glass in his garden, he looked totally different from a rock star who plays hard and energetically on the stage . What in the world gives this quiet, good young man has so much tough energy? …I wondered when I looked at Rory who sat on garden roller, playing a strange freakish instrumental number without any pause.”
“THE HAND BOOK” (Player Corporation) Japan, 1977
