9 years. Time sure flies. I had seen VH several times and EVH was the most technically advanced electric guitar player I had seen. Indeed after Jimi Hendrix died, Carlos Santana and Jeff Beck seemed to be THE technical wizards in the guitar rags on rock guitar until EVH came along and suddenly he was all most talked about.
Then I saw DLR with Steve Via and suddenly realised there is another who can play electric guitar solos with all that speed, technically advanced and whammy bar gone wild.
I had never heard of Gary Moore. Saw him once in the 1980s when Gary was still hard rock, Fender Stratocaster and whammy bar gone wild. I was so stunned and surprised. I caught Gary on a night when he was blazingly fast, scary clean, whammy bar doing Hendrix type things. What was clear was EVH and Steve Vai in the 1980's couldn't come close to blowing Gary More off the stage . Gary was simply amazing if you like heavy rock, shredding at lightening speed and whammy bar gone crazy guitar playing.
I'm not in the mood for that kind of playing everyday. But when I am, Gary Moore is as good as anyone else you can name.

A new cd/lp has just been released. It's a recording from a live performance from Dec. 2009. You can listen to some samples and make a purchase from the Gary Moore website.....

Gary doing a short instrumental. Freddie King's Stumple.
Great humbucker Les Paul tone. Energy, power and squeaking CLEAN!!
No other electric guitar player could play this any better. None.

Only had time for two of these this morning and first I opted for Jimi's I Don't Live Today. Off the hook. Interesting that Gary changed guitars in mid-tune.
Then I watched Over The Hills and Far Away thinking for sure it was going to be a cover of the Zeppelin tune. Man, was I ever wrong. Sounds like a cover of an old Irish folk tune complete with a four or five piece string section backing up Gary and his band. Impressive that he could pull this off, and pull it off he did!
