Ah wow man,Gary Moore played guitar !!
you're right he did.
In fact he was one of the greats.Along with Peter Green he is,to my mind,the best blues guitarist to come from the UK.
Before someone points to Thin Lizzy I know he was more hard rock at first.I discovered GM in the mid 80's when he was releasing reak good Hard Rock
albums like Nowhere to Run and After the War.He was acclaimed as a great player then,which he was but it's when he released Still Got The Blues in
1990 that i truly realised how great he was.
I heard the song 'Pretty Woman' and had to get thd album as soon as it was released.
He's got that kind of explosive yet fluent and seamless attack to the blues not heard since Jimi Hendrix,more so than SRV to my mind.
I know my opinion will be contreversial but when I include Page as being blues player though I do Clapton.lol.
Peter Green and GM had there own unique individual blues style,as did Rory Gallagher I thosmd three though rated aren't rated anywhere as high as the
Some peoples death just shocks and saddens you more than you expected it would.
Gary Moore's hit me hard.
It also mean's I'll never see him play live now,thought there was a lifetime to do that.
