than just 'like'
I always assumed everyone knew his stuff...
...gobsmacked so few out there know about him - or worse, don't 'get' him.
He was amazing. I've watched the '87 Live In Stockholm so many times, and still can't believe how perfect his playing was.
Yeah got 2 of his DVD'S- Live at Montreux and his tribute to Phil Lynott - One Night In Dublin.
Both stellar performances. Great player with feeling.
He was so underrated.. One of the best guitar players in the world !!!
I watch this video all the time...
Been a GM fan for 40+ years. Never get tired of that video, or this one:
I've been a fan since he was in our local civic hall peddling his Still got the blues album. I had just finished school and a friend of a friend brought Bill and Teds over to watch, mentioned that Gary Moore was in town. Must have been 89/90. I had never heard of him. We all caught the train to Guildford a week later.
Guildford Civic Hall was a pretty small venue where all the famous bands since the 60's had played and even made some pretty famous live Albums. Capacity was 1000-1700 so we were close and could see everything without a big screen. Was completely blown away and made me want to learn to play guitar.
Was Gary Moore that inspired me to buy my first Guitar. Didn't do very well since I couldn't afford lessons and the local library books were incomprehensible to me lol. Was 20 years later when I bought my second guitar and WWW existed making learning a lot easier.
Still love Gary Moore's playing today, even if he did sometimes get carried away overdo it. He was phenomenal.
Too good not to quote...
I was only lucky enough to see him once. It was the latter part of the ‘70s when he toured with Thin Lizzy because Robo had hurt his hand (I think it was a tendon?) in a fight before they were supposed to go on tour. When they played “Still In Love With You”, he simply floored me!
There are several respomses to that...
...but this seemed apposite:-
of You, the
videos of Gary
in the studio with Jack Bruce.
Two old pals of mine blowing the cobwebs away big time
Have this on the "Definitive Montreux Collection" DVD. Love every minute of it!:
Lizzy 74 , I liked this lineup , and interesting and very GOOD, what would be transitional lineup
My amps on tour with Moore 10 years ago in Germany . We had a great time .He was really kind to me, knowing how much I idolized Lynott
This is a pretty impressive. The show was called Old Grey Whistle Test and was kind of like a jam night where bands just turned up and played live on TV.
This is a Thin Lizzy video where Gary breaks his low e string. Instead of stopping and changing strings or guitars he just keeps on playing using the rest of the fretboard like there isn't a problem.
Bit of a guitar duel towards the end where everyone goes nuts and seem to be having a great time of it.
And another one. George Harrison's last concert. While my guitar gently weeps featuring Gary Moore. Probably my favourite version of that song.
Massive Gary fan here! (As can be seen in my profile pic)
I've seen him live on the Close As You Get Tour in 2007 in Dublin. He was absolutely on fire! I remember leaving thinking how his live albums (which are arguably some of the best out there, Blues Alive, We Want Moore.....phenomenal) don't do him justice. He absolutely floored me. My guitar teacher got me into him with the Power Of The Blues album and I was literally hooked from then. That album is still in regular rotation. Not my favourite Gary Album but it has a lot of memories attached to it. I only knew some of his bigger hits before this.
I personally thing the Live Blues gig was hands down his best show. I would love to see a Blu Ray/DVD release of that. I had the VHS (again thanks to my guitar teacher) and watched it a million times. Had to dig out the old VCR but it was worth it.
He was literally the total package, great voice, unreal tone, fantastic songwriter and knew when to rip and when to hold back and when to leave space. I try and cop as much of his style as possible. He definitely has aspects that many guitarists would benefit from.
One of a kind that we'll never see the likes of again. Huge loss! And frighteningly underrated.
Not mine either, but a good one nonetheless for sure. I've always been a live vs. studio album guy too, but I can remember the first time I heard his take on "I Can't Quit You Baby"; the first chord he plays almost blew me out of my chair!
