DIGGING DEEP...

The late, great Gary Moore (sadly he passed away in 2011 much too young at 58) is probably Northern Ireland's most legendary guitar slinger son. Make that definitely. Born a Belfast boy in 1952 he became something of a musical prodigy, playing a mean axe from the age of 14 on. His career flourished locally since he was a childhood friend of Phil Lynott and Brian Downey and his apprenticeship served he delighted audiences with his flamboyant style and immaculate taste in Skid Row and Thin Lizzy. As his reputation spread Moore found himself sharing space with other notables, including the blues masters B.B. King and Albert King (heroes of his), Colosseum 11, Greg Lake and his latter-day friend George Harrison. Moore's legacy lies primarily within a sterling collection of albums, now available for your perusal and delight but just as he was influenced by Peter Green he has informed the work of many other players in his own wake - admirers on record include Ozzy Osbourne, Kirk Hammett, Glenn Hughes, Bryan Adams, Tony Iommi, Brian May and Bob Geldof. Very much a musician's musician Gary was an enormously popular live drawer, as will be seen by a slew of on stage albums in our catalogue and he had enormous success in Europe as well as at home and in America.
