Gary Moore - Best Of / Total Time: 72,54 / Pop Classic / Euroton Audio CD / EUCD-0099
Robert William Gary Moore (4 April 1952 – 6 February 2011) was a Northern Irish musician and singer-songwriter. Over the course of his career, Moore played in various groups and performed many different styles of music, including blues, hard rock, heavy metal and jazz fusion.
Moore began his career in the late 1960s when he joined Skid Row, with whom he released two albums. After Moore left the group, he joined Thin Lizzy, which featured his former Skid Row bandmate and frequent collaborator Phil Lynott. Moore began his solo career in the 1970s, achieving his first major success with 1978's "Parisienne Walkways", which is considered his signature song. During the 1980s, Moore transitioned into playing hard rock and heavy metal with varying degrees of success around the world. By the decade's end, however, he had grown tired of his own music and decided to return to his roots with 1990's Still Got the Blues, which became the most successful album of his career. He continued to release new music throughout the rest of his career, as well as collaborate with other artists from time to time. Moore died on 6 February 2011 from a heart attack while on holiday in Spain.
Influenced by Peter Green and Eric Clapton, Moore was often described as a virtuoso and was himself a major influence on many other guitarists. He was voted one of the greatest guitarists of all time on respective lists by Total Guitar and Louder. Irish singer-songwriter Bob Geldof said that "without question, [Moore] was one of the great Irish bluesmen." For most of his career, Moore was also heavily associated with Peter Green's famed 1959 Gibson Les Paul guitar. Moore was later honored by Gibson and Fender with several signature model guitars of his own.
