An address from President Michael D. Higgins was always going to be a highlight of The Music Show and the one-time Hot Press columnist didn’t disappoint.
It was a moment to savour. Hot Press editor Niall Stokes presented President Michael D. Higgins with a framed photograph of Philip Lynott and Rory Gallagher, the only shot taken of the two seminal rockers together, signed by Colm Henry. One could imagine this iconic photograph, taken at a gig promoted by Hot Press back in 1982, on the walls of Áras an Uachtaráin, as the President held it symbolically above his head, in a gesture of solidarity.
