Journalist: Jimi, what’s it like to be the GREATEST guitarist in the world?
Hendrix: I don’t know, ask RORY GALLAGHER.
And this man lived in Cork! And Cork entirely expresses his spirit. It feels like in a rock gig, really, you hear rock music by the buildings, by the river Lee, by people’s faces, by the air. Cork has a rebellious spirit, he is free, he is different, he is the rock music itself.
I wouldn’t say it’s a gorgeous city, it’s very industrial, it has no splendid buildings or art works. There are some great street art and a couple of churches and historical places, but they definitely don’t blow your mind away. What does blow is its super rocky atmosphere. Cork rocks for Rory!
