Gary Moore

Still got hte Blues for Mary-Lou

Tuesday 24 April 2001

Hi Guys & Girls

Long time no see.

I went along to see Gary Moore last Tuesday  thinking I had moved on from that particular style of music which I loved  in the 80's but man, it didn't take Gary long to convince me that he is to Blues  guitar  what Paganini was to the violin. Amazing!!!

The sound was one of the best   I have ever heard at the Barrowland and  you regulars will know how good that can be.  The band stayed pretty much in the background and let the "maestro" do his  stuff.

He did some "spicy" BB King, some "mellow" Eric Clapton, some "wild" Jimi  Hendrix and
of course some Thin Lizzy  but his own "Still got the Blues for you" was the highlight of the
evening and probably drew the odd tear from the audience.

There's some who say that soul is the music of "lurve" but I'd like to suggest that it is only the Blues that can put a sexy sway  into peoples hips and take them from foreplay to climax again and again. ;-)

Gary should change his name to "More" and hurry back and not let us wait another 10 years!

Even Gary didn't make the Channel 4 list he'll forever be in my Top 10 Guitarists of all time!
