Gary Moore 1952-2011

Gary Moore was a guitarist of many different styles. He played rock and metal but his true love was the blues and in his later years he was primarily a blues musician. I became a fan of Moore a little over a year ago, due to his rock/metal albums of the 80s, but have been wanting to give his blues work a try as well as I’ve read that a number of them are quite amazing.

Sadly, despite a couple of short runs as a member of Thin Lizzy and some solo success in the UK, Moore went virtually unnoticed by the mainstream. He was a talented musician that never achieved the recognition that he deserved. Perhaps, in his death, many will be inspired to listen to his music.

From the handful of Moore albums I have heard, “Victims of the Future” is my favorite song of his and here’s a great live version of it.

  1. Victims of the Future is my favorite Gary Moore album, then it is Run For Cover, I really didn’t get much farther than those two albums but I have been planing on checking mroe of hiss tuff out, too bad he passed away, he was a fantastic musician

  2. I am stunned. I will miss knowing Gary Moore is around and making music. May he rest in peace and bring his guitar magic to Rock ‘N’ Roll Heaven.

  3. His tenure with Thin Lizzy was outstanding! Gary Moore will definitely be missed…cause Blaine says so!
