    Gary Moore

    I don't know much about him other than the track he did with Phil that's been poorly covered by a bunch of power metal bands (Primal Fear, Sonata Artica, Riot, Supreme Majesty, et. al.).

    Watching this, though, makes me want to check out some more. Got any recommendations?

    Shamefully, I own a Best Of cd of his from way back when, Out In The Fields. Various live versions of Parisien Walkways and Still Got The Blues are probably his most famous tunes. Good stuff, if you're coming from a blues rock angle. If you can live with the shame of buying a best of, it's a good collection.

    Empty Rooms is a great pop rock track. Classic stuff. Should be a bigger hit than it was.

    He became somewhat of a blues purist later in life.

    And of course, this is probably his most famous track complete with famous "infinite sustain" moments.

    My fave Gary Moore (solo/out of Thin Lizzy) song, already posted, but here is a late but fantastic live version:

    For solo albums, "Corridors of Power" "Victims of the Future" and "Run for Cover" (especially "Out In the Fields" and "Military Man", both with Lynott) are his best work, IMO. "Back On the Streets" would probably be fourth, and of course it has "Parisienne Walkways" on it.

    He's on my favorite non-live Thin Lizzy album - "Black Rose - A Rock Legend", which is loaded with awesome playing.

    His tone is beautiful. His phrasing is tasteful. I have the Best Of CD as well. Before that I really wasn't familiar with him other than "Still Got the Blues," which I really like, but the CD is a good sampling of his playing and is also one of the few CDs that my wife and I both find enjoyable.

    Oh, and his blues stuff is OK, but never really floored me. He plays fine, I just didn't think the songs were anything special.
