    Anyone else think he is a perfect blend of Hendrix and Clapton with the accuracy of Joe Walsh?

    Watching him do Red House live on YouTube. I’m stunned.

    No. His shredding ability far exceeds any of the artists you listed. Very, very different.

    Gary was the perfect Gary.
    He was different, that's why I love his playing.

    Yeah, I don't hear any of those guys in his playing.

    I will say I approached his Hendrix covers/tribute sets with trepidation, but he did a great job with that material.

    I have never related his playing to any of those guys.

    Gary Moore was into fusion at one point.

    I hear more Peter Green and Jeff Beck than anything else, perhaps even a little Albert Collins.

    The last thing I hear is Clapton or Hendrix.

    If he plays Red House he might intentionally imitate Hendrix a little for that particular song, but that's where it stops.

    Love Gary, but accuracy of Joe Walsh? Nothing against Joe, but he doesn't compare to Gary in any form to me. I really wouldn't compare Gary to Hendrix or Clapton either and in my mind, his version of Red House is just mindless wankery. Not all his playing, most of it is great, but I'm not feeling his Red House at all.

    If you like his blues, this is way better IMHO.

    Accuracy? What does that mean? And how is Joe Walsh "accurate?"

    Overheard a Gary Moore soundcheck before a gig in town. Was ridiculous - you would have swore a needle was being dropped on records: when he played some Jeff Beck, it was Jeff; same for Knopfler; same for Greenie; etc. Gary was an incredibly versatile and curious player, very aggressive but musical. Total one-off. Lesser known credits include The Travelling Wilburys, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Greg Lake, Colosseum II, Cozy Powell, etc.

    Yeah, agreed... Green maybe more for tone, Beck for overall style.

    I’d rather listen to Joe Walsh any day.

    He's a very unrated vocalist and song writer imo...

    I don't know about the Andrew Lloyd Weber stuff or the Traveling Wilburys involvement. Let's hear more.

    Gary is one of my fav guitar players. i love Hendrix as well. don't really see then as all that similar. Gary can do a Hendrix tune justice and there is a whole concert recording to prove that. he still sounded like Gary Moore playing Jimi though. agree that Gary was a very versatile player which is a big reason he is one of my favs. i don't hear Clapton in him at all though. he was friends with Peter Green and certainly soaked up more than a little of his playing style when it comes to blues.
