This is astonishing guitar play. Take sincerity and virtuosity to new heights. One of the greatest solos of all time. So much passion and it didn’t have to be a crazy solo. You have to love Gary Moore …he always gives everything he’s got. It takes a few minutes for this song to get fully going but it’s worth it.
Gary Moore started playing the guitar as an eight-year-old. He got his first professional instrument at the age of 14. It was a right-hand guitar – and he was left-handed! It did not disturb him in any way. His style evolved over the years from rock to blues-rock, which has already defined his musical career to the end.
In 1969, 16-year-old Gary put everything on one card. He crossed the border dividing Ireland, settled in Dublin and began playing in the local band Skid Row. The bassist and vocalist was there Phil Lynott, who later left to found Thin Lizzy.
Moore’s star did not shine until he made his solo recordings. Although his debut solo album appeared in the early 1970s, he launched the first real hit in 1978. It was a ballad “Parisienne Walkways”, where his friend Lynott sang as his guest.
Moore’s last commercial success was the album “Still Got The Blues” from 1990. On it, you can hear that the musician return to the more classical, blues-rock repertoire, which remained faithful for the next two decades.
