Gone but not forgotten......happy birthday Gary Moore! His death last year was so unexpected and so sad. At least we have all his great music and playing to cherish.

Amazing guitar player. He would bend the Hell out of a note and you sometimes wouldn't hear the release, as if his bent notes went on forever. A sad loss indeed.

RIP Gary Moore. One of the greatest, and one of the most underrated.

RIP Gary Moore - "Still Got The Blues For You" is one of the most beautiful - melodic pieces of music that these old ears have ever heard! when I think of tone & melody as far as guitar players go, Dickey Betts & Gary Moore come to mind!

RIP Garry Moore...damn he had tone for daze....never forget the day I bought Still Got the Blues for You...listening to it and looking at cover, I saw a Marshall guv'nor OD pedal sitting on top of his amp...I still love that pedal, ordered it the next day.

Happy Birthday Gary!

Love seeing him get some respect! One of my favorites and always will be. RIP Gary!

Lots of cool Gary stuff has/is being released. Picked up a couple of his latest DVD releases. The last Montereaux show has been in my DVD player for weeks now. Sad to see the weight that Gary had gained but the playing is unreal. Mixture of the blues and rock stuff and almost every song is extended. Slightly more out of control at times than usual but somehow more emotional. Almost as if Gary knew this would be the last DVD that he would put out. Parisienne Walkways jut goes on forever as if he doesn't want it to end. I must have 20-30 versions of it but this version is just intense. Brought tears to my eyes the first time watching.

I completely agree. I have that along with the CD and although I have just about every VHS and DVD he has put out (and the Montreaux CD box set is fantastic) I think it is his best playing. Intense doesn't even begin to do it justice.

So true intense doesn't do it justice at all and yet it definitely is. Not sure I would say it is Gary's best as at times he is perhaps sloppier than usual. But at times it is the looser carefree sloppy moment that makes that show differ. Obviously he doesn't become a different beast but I can't shake the feeling that somehow it was almost a farewell from him.

Hard for me to pick any moment when I think Gary is at his best. Could probably end up with a book after discussing each era and whether or not it might be a career/playing peak. As for video of shows, the Emerald Isle VHS is also pretty tough to beat. Amazed that it hasn't been released on DVD and was discontinued. Definitely gary at the peak of the metal years.

Hell I love them all.

Moore Metal please!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PegOCBkUJNI

I always hoped Gary would have done another metal/hard rock album. I am sure there is some unsed blues and other material. Hopefully it will see the light of day.

You make a great point - there may not be another player that could play metal, rock (Thin Lizzy - I don't consider them metal) and blues with equal facility and as well as the best in all three genres. There was no dropoff in his skill when he played any of those 3. I really can't think of any other player that could do it as well as he did. Most are stuck in one - and MAYBE 2 - styles that they can really master.

BTW, I think most or all of his Virgin solo CDs have been remastered and all have several bonus tracks on them - so far I've only got a couple but the BBM disc with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker is excellent - sounds MUCH better than the original release and it has 4 extra tracks, only one of which is a repeat and it includes a live version of them doing Sittin' On Top Of The World. Very cheap, too.

If any guitar player deserves a career-spanning Box Set, Gary Moore does.

This is nice and thanks for the Gary Moore memorial thread. He was already gone from Thin Lizzy by the time I had discovered him, but I did discover him in early 80s. He was heavy metal hard rock. I moved to blues after hearing Stevie Ray, several years later, along comes Gary playing Still Got the Blues For You, and Pretty Woman (not the Orbison track). Followed him to the end cause he went blues and he was good, but there is one standout metal track which should be recognized; Murder in the Skies. It is about the plane the Russians shot down over the sea of Japan. Look it up.

Murder In The Skies is a live bonus track on Run For Cover:

and it's also on We Want Moore!

http://www.amazon.com/We-Want-Moore-Gary/dp/B000093OU6/ref=pd_sim_m_5

and Victims Of The Future:

http://www.amazon.com/Victims-Future-Gary-Moore/dp/B000093OU5/ref=pd_sim_m_ 3


I also forgot that he played with Colosseum II. So I guess you could add fusion to the many different styles he he mastered. Man, what a player.

Sure would love to have heard him play with Peter Green back in the day when Skid Row opened for Fleetwood Mac.

Gary Moore also guested on The Travelling Willburys second CD release. Not only another sign of his diversity but also a sign of appreciation by fellow musicians.

Prior to his death he was more and more revisiting his hardrock period which made his death even more tragic and premature. Really would have loved him releasing another hardrock CD in the style of "Corridors Of Power", "Victims Of The Future" and "Wild Frontier".

Fortunally saw him live 12-14 times since the mid Eighties but unfortunally not with BBM because those European dates got cancelled. A few years ago he did a festival gig at Bospop Festival in Weert Netherlands. After finishing his concert on the main stage he rushed over to the Tent Stage and joined John Mayall & The Blues Breakers for half of their show. One of my favorite Gary Moore performances of recent years.

Would LOVE to have seen/heard this. Hope it was taped - I'll keep my eye out for it. Thanks for the heads-up.

I wish he would've toured in the US more, I would've loved to have seen him play live. Still Got The Blues & Blues Alive are 2 of his best!!

Nice thread, guys, and a sweet lineup of tunes, CanadianMule.


I think Gary Moore was one of those musicians that was around long enough and toured and played hard enough to be known, and yet somehow was still unknown, except to people who are really into the blues and blues rock, and thus came across him. I recall that it was only because I was a rivet head as well as a blues rock fan in the 70's and 80's who read alot of "Circus" magazine reviews that I just happened to discover Moore's album "Victims of the Future", which was hard rock.
Moore was a very good guitar player that could do anything from heavy metal to straight-up blues, and was of course a killer blues rock guy. He was fast, but fast with feeling. He merged them and did it well. That's why he kicks so much butt on pretty much all his records, regardless of the leaning.

What was cooler still was his obvious appreciation of the older black players, like Albert Collins and Albert King. And they seemed also to love playing with this white kid from Ireland.

You've simply gotta love "If Trouble was Money", with Albert Collins. If it doesn't ring your bell, check the clapper.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uq9fqK8vI-k

And there's this number he did with Albert King, "Oh Pretty Woman" on the "Still Got the Blues Album". This one's live with just Gary, but it contains an intro where the two Alberts (mostly King, with Collins laughing and agreeing) are talking about Gary's playing. If you haven't seen this intro it's a treat. At the close of the vid, Collins speaks a little.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdxLxm5oJGo

Well, you know, that is the ultimate compliment, isn't it?
You're a white guy with two of the towering icons of the blues talking about how good you are. Then you actually record with them, and one says you're so good that he forgot all about the ideas for a jam he brought with him, and was minded to pour some water on your axe 'cause it's so hot, lololol !!!

Yeah...Gary Moore should not be overlooked, or forgotten.
It's that simple.
