Continuing with my A to Z of some of my favourite Rock bands/singers/ musicians.
Probably one of the most talented guitarists I have ever seen or listened to is Gary Moore who sadly is no longer with us.
Gary was born in Belfast and was a member of Thin Lizzy, Colloseum 11, Grand Slam and his own band and other collaborations.
I never saw him in Thin Lizzy but I have seen them (Lizzy) and I saw Gary Moore at the Garden Party in Milton Keynes Bowl in 1986. It was a gorgeous summers day and it was a great day of Rock music with the likes of Mamas Boys, Magnum, Gary Moore's band, Jethro Tull and Marillion playing.
Gary Moore was a brilliant Blues and Heavy Rock guitarist. Here's Gary and other Thin Lizzy members playing ' Black Rose'. Such a great rock song full of Irish folklore and you will recognise a few ballads tunes all entwined in Black Rose: "Where the mountains of Mourne come down to the sea".... Enjoy.
