Just thought I would get a feel of any Gary Moore fans out here. I got hooked on him in the early 80's when he was in his hard rock phase. I was really suprised, I think it was in 1991, when his first all blues cd came out. I was pretty impressed with it and thought it was very good.
I love Gary and his guitar work, I feel he is up there with the best, but I think some of his blues stuff is kinda abrasive, almost to much of a harder edge... hard rock style infused into some of his blues songs and I find it kinda difficult to listen to. It is not bad by any means, just kinda hard for me to listen to a blues song when the guitar sounds like it belongs in a heavy metal/hard rock song.Just my opinion.
I hope he will do another straight ahead rocker one of these days.

If your not familiar with the work he did with Thin Lizzy, I strongly suggest you check it out. One tune in particular to check out is "Still in love with you" where he duets with Phil Lynott.

been a long time fan since i first heard him with colosseum II. i love his blues stuff and his stuff with lizzy. his 80's heavy metal phase was kind of hit or miss for me however. i do wish he would do another jazz/fusion lp like the colosseum stuff - it's been way too long since he's explored that side of his musical history.


gary with ex thin lizzy members and phil lynott's mother philomena at the unveiling of the statue of phil lynott in dublin in august of 2005.

The tone he gets on that song rips my heart out everytime I hear it! I'm glad I didn't go through a break up while that song was first released because it would really give ya the blues whenever you heard that song being played. I have the "Black Rose" album with Lizzy but I don't have any of his solo work anymore. I use to own "Victims of the Fury" on vinyl, that was a really good album from what I remember.

Sure thing Better still i may tape it. Pete, an old bandmate and friend of my dad's is Gary's bassplayer , so there's a chance i could get a slightly better experience than other folks

Saw him once before - when he screws up his face when soloing is priceless

A friend of mine had the album he did with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker and I remember it was pretty cool. Not quite the same as Cream but close.

Wish I had that ...

Like Gary Moore-he seems to be an ornery guy, & it sort of reflects his music. He has that hard edge to it, and it oozes into his blues as well.

Read something where Moore was complaining about Bruce & Ginger during the BBM tenure.

Always like Gary Moore a lot. especially in the eighties (hard rock era) and also liked
the stuff he did in the seventies (solo records, Lizzy and Skid Row). Was also pleasantly surprised with his "Still Got The Blues" album but wished he would have returned to the hard rock with an occasional side step to the blues. during the mid eighties the continuing blues output made me less interested. The reason why was perfectly decribed by jszfunk.
Although i usually love bluesy hardrock his hardrock infused blues sometimes puts me off.

Love that early "Grinding Stone" album which GM himself apparantly didn't like much himself (which he told journalists repeatingly).

Seen him more than a dozen times live (since the mid eighties). I loved that first blues tour in 1990 (Larry McCray supporting) but in the following years i more and more started longing for his hardrock years (Still In Love With You, Parriesene Walkaways, The Loner and Empty Rooms were fantastic ballads and his harder hitting stuff was great too:
Murders In The Sky, Victims Of The future, Military Man, Out In The Fields, Over The Hills And Far Away just to name a few).

Saw him again this summer at the Bospop Festival in the Netherlands ( in between Paul Rodgers and John Fogerty) and liked the performance only partly. He leaned to much on the "Still Got The Blues" album and to many songs played in the same tempo. His son jack joined him on stage on rhytym guitar. The rather mediocre performance (for Gary Moore
standards at least) got a brilliant sequel. 30 minutes later he joined John Mayall And The Bluesbreakers on the second stage halfway the set and stayed with them for the next 35 minutes including encores. He smoked!! Played great but in a classy and humble way: without stepping on John's toes. That was very cool!

I love the "Still Got the Blues" album and song as well. Its the only album I have of his but always enjoy listening to it. I had no idea he was Irish until I was doing some research on him one day, it surprised me. Great stuff though.
