For those of you who have not heard the news: blues rock guitar legend Gary Moore passed away earlier this month in his hotel room in Spain and was buried yesterday in a small graveyard in Brighton, where he’d been living the last fifteen years.
My first encounter with Gary Moore was when I heard the song Parisienne Walkways.
And another one of my favorites used to be The Loner
For me Gary Moore is what making a note is all about, very much like with Santana. And let that be the most important memory be for any guitarist to take along. He was one of those guys that had a voice on his guitar.
This in memoriam would in my view not be complete without the last song: Still Got the Blues, through which he reappeared in the charts. Without a doubt you’ll be able to come up with many more songs but to me these three songs are the Gary Moore that I remember and loved.
In any event I’ll close off with Messiah will come again, what an amazing player. Thanks for all that great music and ongoing inspiration and may you rest in peace.
