I saw Gary play at the The Bingley Hall, Birmingham in the 80s before he went into Blues music and he was brilliant ... other than the red boiler suit
thing he was wearing that made him look like a big tomato but musically just awesome.
Not a great fan of Blues but I do like it in moderation , first time I heard " Still Got The Blues" I loved it though , Gary's voice mixed with his
guitar playing are the perfect accompaniment to what is a great song.
Fans of the Blues , Gary Moore or just music in general check this bundle of perfection out , live in Hamburg.
His acoustic sound on that one live was amazing and may have been the most outstanding acoustic guitar SOUND I've ever heard. I believe it was an
Ovation 12 string for that intro. It even sounds awesome on We Want Moore, the live album from that time....well, there were three of them but from
that era of the band lol.
I had never heard a note from him when I saw for that 45 minutes. I just knew he had had stints in Thin Lizzy. Dude blew me away in such a short time
slot. Check out the setlist, it's awesome.
White Knuckles, gods he killed me that night AND it was my first Rush show and THEY are the GODS of RnR so let's just say this was a hallmark moment
for me in my Rock n Roll evolution, a very large jumping step from the boring Zeppelin I was being bombarded with. End Of The World, Murder In The
Skies, so killer.
The next time I saw Rush Steve Morse Band opened. Talk about Rush turning me onto some killer musicians those two are way worth the few bucks I paid
for to see those shows in the early "80's. Although, I have spent a considerable amount of money to buy everything they have done since then so maybe,
it didn't work out monetarily, but I'll stand on the mountains of Gary Moore and Steve Morse and plant a huge flag there.
Steve kept Deep Purple a viable band and a stable one as Ritchie is, well, nuts, and Steve, just ain't. I'll take the Purpundicular album as one of
the top five the band ever did although I'm not sure where on that list it would go. I'd have to think about that.
Here's a good one, the remix of Over The Hills.

You mentiones Ian Paice, please don't let's get started on the DP/Sabbath/Gary Moore/ETC. family tree. That will go on for way too long and it's so
deep, pun intended, that it's just gonna take us down a ridiculous rabbit hole.
I've been down there too long, it hurts. LOL who was the drummer on Gary's Wild Frontier?

A drum machine for the album but Eric Singer played drums on the tour.
All drums on Wild Frontier are sequenced with a drum machine, although the programming is uncredited in the liner notes of the album, electronic
drummer Roland Kerridge, of the band Re-Flex did a lot of the drum tracks, and would appear in the music video for "Over the Hills and Far Away," as
well as early TV promotions for the album. Future Alice Cooper, Kiss and former Black Sabbath drummer Eric Singer played drums for the tour, before
going on to form Badlands. eyesoremerch.com...
