As a professional cameraman at WDR, Rudi Gerlach met Rory the first time in Köln (Cologne) during the recording of Rory`s first Rockpalast 6. Okt. 1976 at WDR Studio L. From this time on they met every time Rory was near by, and talked by phone several hours from Cologne to London in the meantime.
Rudi told me very personal stories about Rory, and he sent some sheets handwritten by Rory.
