It was 1 year ago today, 11/21/10 that I discovered Tom and wrote about his work here on TheGuitarBuzz.com.
I check on Tom’s web site every so often and when I looked on Sunday I was amazed to learn that he has “the late Gary Moore” on his canvas and “in the works” right now. I always have been and always will be a fan of Gary Moore and will eternally regret that I never saw him play in person.
In honor of the “soon to be released” print, I am announcing a Gary Moore CD/DVD Giveaway contest right here on TheGuitarBuzz. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment to this post about Gary Moore.
I have 2 CDs and 1 DVD of “Gary Moore Live in Montreaux 2010” that I will give away FREE to 3 winners via random drawing from the comments left to this post. The contest will end at 12:00noon MST on the day after Tom Noll notifies me that the Gary Moore print is ready to ship.
After decades of monster guitar work on his own albums and with Thin Lizzy, Cozy Powell, Rod Argent, Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and others, Moore dug deep into blues before returning to rock in 2010.
Sadly, he died suddenly in early 2011; this 2010 Montreux set was his last filmed concert. He’s got energy to spare here, playing classics plus new songs: Over the Hills and Far Away; Blood of Emeralds; So Far Away/Empty Rooms; Military Man; Parisienne Walkways; Oh Wild One and more…
After years of blues explorations, this performance marked a return to hard-charging rock for Moore. In fact, the former Thin Lizzy guitarist was working on a new rock album at the time of his death.
Providing a hint of what might’ve been, Moore performed three brand new songs that night at Montreux – all of which are included here. “Days of Heroes” is a strident, stomping rocker with Moore belting a furious vocal. “Where Are You Now” leans into a slow, insistent beat.
