Gary Moore RIP

Guitarist, singer, rocker and bluesman Gary Moore died suddenly today in Spain. He was 59 years old. Originally from Belfast, Moore, was best known as a solo guitarist and singer. His ability to switch from a Peter Green styled intensity to a slashing Stevie Ray Vaughan lick came across effortlessly in his music.
Moore played with Thin Lizzy in the early 70s and performed with some of the greatest Blues acts of the last thirty years. He released twenty solo albums and toured off and on with Thin Lizzy starting in the 1970s, and later in 2006.

In 2001 Moore released Back to the Blues. The disc featured a cover of T-Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday", and the Yardbirds' gem "I Ain't Got You". A couple Moore originals, the atmspheric "Pictures Of The Moon" and the instrumental song "The Prophet".
From Back to the Blues, this is "Looking Back".

And the haunting "Stormy Monday"

Back to the Blues
