Gary Moore 1952 - 2011

One of my heroes, Irish Blues Rock guitarist and vocalist Gary Moore passed away Sunday February 6th at the age of 58 while on vacation in Spain.

I loved his music. He had the quintessential Gibson Les Paul plugged into a cranked up Marshall amp tone that many seek and few attain. As a guitar player he had an amazing feel, vibrato, and his phrasing was impeccable. He was also capable of incredible speed and precision which when mixed with his sense of melody was breathtaking. Gary was also known for his ballads in which he would simply make the guitar weep beautifully.

Thank you for sharing your gifts with us Gary. You will be greatly missed.
