Gary Moore - Rest In Peace

The BBC is reporting that guitarist Gary Moore passed away this morning. Gary Moore was a member of Thin Lizzy in the late '70's and a solo artist playing first hard rock and then concentrating on the blues since the early 90's. Simply put he is one of the best players I have ever heard. He will be missed.

  1. In the 1990s Gary played too briefly with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker and in my humble opinion, out claptoned Clapton, leaving no one in the audience wanting Slowhand to replace him. Few people in the USA recognized the genius of Moore and how he had an almost Jeff beck-ish versatility to him, while remaining firmly in the rock tradition. Americans, give him a shot.
