    For a moment there, I thought he was wearing a dress.

    So then I figured, "No wonder he's alone - who would show up to see Gary Moore in a dress? He doesn't have the legs for it."

    But then I thought, "Well I'd still show up, for sure - dress or no dress, he can play guitar a little bit."

    So, uh, I dunno.

    Too 80's for my tastes.

    It's not my favourite Moore instrumental. I love his playing, the man could play the hell out of a guitar, but that track never did much for me. It's trying a bit too hard in an 80s sort of way

    I thought that was Parisienne Walkways? Or, maybe Still got the Screws.

    His impact on guitar and the number of people he has or will influence hasn't even registered yet. What he and Walter Trout have done to blues rock is only rivaled by Johnny Winter, who invented the genre.

    Masterful as always.
    I wonder if some of the "80's" opinions/posts would be different if it was just an audio track and no video?
    Either way, no reason to ever hide from the 80's roots or sounds (just maybe some of the clothes and hair lol).
    Gary was one of the greatest ever.

    It's cold outside.
    The "late to the party" years of Moore. Extra cheese production, and aesthetics that make you cringe. Curly mullet, check. Long leather jacket, check. Jackson Soloist, check.

    But if you can bare through all of that, you get a nice payoff around the 4 minute mark, and one super cool lick where he builds the tension with a repetitive lick, then resolves it with a flurry. No one builds drama like Gary (even if this is not the best example)

    I had Cozy Powell's first solo effort on cassette with the original recorded version of this tune. Clem Clempson on guitar. Max Middleton composition.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm a huge Gary Moore fan, but that production is just screaming "80's".

    This version is much better, mostly due to Cozy on the kit and the production. To be fair, the sound quality of the actual Moore clip was wretched, '80s production notwithstanding.

    Moore is a beast. When I want to listen to some balls to the walls guitar, that is what I put in the cd player.
