Gary Moore

Robert William Gary Moore (4 April 1952[3] – 6 February 2011) was a Northern Irish guitarist and singer-songwriter. According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Moore had a “restless career trajectory—taking in blues, rock, heavy metal, jazz-fusion and other styles over four and a half decades”.[2] He is often described as a virtuoso guitarist.[1][4][5][6]

Born and raised in Belfast, Moore played in the line-ups of several local bands during his teenage years, before moving to Dublin, after having been asked to join the Irish band Skid Row before the departure of lead singer Phil Lynott. Moore later played with Lynott in Thin Lizzy and joined the British jazz-rock band Colosseum II. He also had a successful solo career with eleven UK Top 40 single releases, which included the top ten songs “Parisienne Walkways” and “Out in the Fields” (a collaboration with Lynott),[7] and peaked in popularity with his best-selling album Still Got the Blues in 1990.[8]

Moore shared the stage with blues and rock musicians including B.B. King, Albert King, John Mayall, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Albert Collins, George Harrison and Greg Lake. BluesyGibby


„Těsně před svou náhlou smrtí připravoval Moore další materiál. Tvrdil, že bude rockový s keltskými vlivy. »Moje bluesová alba byla velmi úspěšná, mohu si proto dovolit ten luxus vrátit se k rockovým kořenům,« řekl tehdy novinářům s tím, že vyrůstal především na hudbě Beatles, rád poslouchá také U2, Rolling Stones nebo Kings of Leon. Svůj záměr však již nestihl dotáhnout do konce…“

Gary Moore zemřel ve spánku 6. února 2011 na dovolené ve Španělsku.
