Moore tore it up. His amazing facial expressions and tone will be missed. RIP

I love his tone as well. His blues stuff to me is amazing. Great touch and delivery. I always felt that he deserved more recognition than he got.

Gary Moore was the most powerful electric guitarist that I've ever seen. So much conviction in each note he played.

Luckily, I got to see him with Thin Lizzy, in '77, when they opened for Queen...we both share the same birthday with Muddy Waters...such incredible tone, bridging the blues & hard rock...sorely missed!

My heart sunk when I heard it, It actually hurt me when my wife told me he died.
That guy was just it! Vibrato to die for, grabbed a note and took it for a ride. I have yet to see another player like him. No one will ever fill those shoes.

I have to agree with all above. He was my guitar idol. Low Bottom E had it right on, Gary would bridge rock and blues fabulously.

One of my biggest heros!

What a loss to the guitar world-one of my biggest influences-just a heck of a player,singer and songwriter

I met him twice and he only lived a few mins away too.. saw him at the dome and at some guitar shows too..
Amazing player. I still hate the fact I'll see him play 'Still got the blues' or 'Parisienne walkways' or 'Walking by myself' or some of his great later stuff like 'Holding on' ... ever again.
He had such a soulful and good singing voice too. His playing was unmatched, for that powerful blues sound.. vibrato too.. such an adept player.
A musician, largely overlooked and underrated. Not by me! ;)

Gary passed on two years ago this month... And the missing continues... the missing presence, the missing influence, and the missing music...
I'm still inspired by what was done in too short a time...
If you have netflix streaming, check out the Tribute to Phil Lynott.
Just watched it a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it.

Love the expressions!

If you don't want to listen to it all, go to around 5:50 simply awesome.
Although, my vote would be for "in Memory" to be restricted to posters and not influencers, no matter how worthy.

Gary was an incredibly emotional guitar player that played every note with a purpose. I never got to see him live but I do own a dvd of him at the Montreaux Jazz festival; just incredible. I too will greatly miss him. R.I.P Gary.
