Gary Moore is gone, but certainly will always be remembered as an absolute Guitar God. Not long ago, I perused a music magazine list of the top 100 guitarists of all time. I knew the list was off when Buddy Guy was ranked only #40! Yes 40th! And Stevie Ray Vaughn not being top ten was eyebrow raising. But, the most moronic omission was Gary Moore not making the list at all. SERIOUSLY?
I understand that tastes vary, we can argue the best ever, but leaving Gary Moore off the top 100?
One of the greatest albums ever was released
Here is just one song from that great album
Music suffered a massive loss when Lynyrd Skynyrd’s plane went down
This was a massive loss for rock music, the bands survivors would reunite in 1987, and were still excellent. Ronnie Van Zant’s little brother Johnny would take Ronnie’s place behind the mic, and original members guitarists Ed King, Gary Rossington, drummer Artimus Pyle, bassist Leon Wilkerson, and keyboardist Billy Powell returned. Original guitarist Allen Collins had been paralyzed in an auto accident years before.
One of the greatest guitar players ever. The argument over who is the “best” ever? It will go on forever but Moore is on a very short list for that honor
Stevie Ray Vaughan was one of the best guitarists ever, he left us in 1990, but his legend lives on
