Glenn is one of my ultimate heroes, but I have as well grown bit tired with him by his output in recent years, starting with a solo album a year at the beginning of the millenium and then BCC, which I am not a fan of very much. Contrived vintage sound with a Glenn trying too hard, IMO. Glenn's golden years for me were 85-86 with the Phenomena debut, Gary Moore's Run for cover and Sabbath's Se

It is a sad state of affairs with BJ. JBJ is done as a singer. The show here in Stockholm just recently were slaughtered in the press and on social media. And without Sambora - no. He is irreplacable for this band. I will treasure my memories from the 1985 Farenheit tour. Saw them at a 1500 capacity theatre - being very short at that time the guards let me stand first row and in centre, de

Rest in peace dear Lady! Your generousity with your son's fans will never be forgotten. I'm sure Phil has arranged for a lovely welcome dinner at the other side.

Great move by the band and Neil. Makes me warm inside. Unfortunately I can not make it to their final Swedish gig, at Sweden Rock, but I'll be there in spirit. Two losses for the MSG/UFO extended family this year, first Ted McKenna and now Paul Raymond.

Well we have Joe Bonamassa - he is a guitar 'star' that has blossomed past the millenium. They are far and few between these days though. As regards Bonamassa, I find him quite a bit overrated if you put him next to Gary, Jeff Beck or another fantastic classic player (also in the blues vein): Dave Meniketti.

Y&T Triumph - probability: above zero, as they recorded together on Rik's last album project Iron Maiden - but only if serious effort is put in into the song writing department (has been lacking on past few albums and especially on the last one). Van Hagar - probability: zero AC/DC Aerosmith Deep Purple - as the last one was surprisingly good Ratt - with Warren Rainbow - with JLT as

Thanks for sharing! I knew of Jeff Kollman through the Glenn Hughes connection but I didn't know of this tribute. Agreed, Jeff Kollman is great. As is the french guy Fred Chappelier I posted a link to. Competitive environment for guitarists if guys like these are not more high profile than they are.

Gary was certainly as proficient blues player in 1988 (at age 36) as he was in 1990 (age 38). Blues was his bread and butter music style. His main influences growing up were Eric Clapton while with John Mayall's Blues Breakers and Peter Green (the original guitarist for Fleetwood Mac - very much a blues player who Gary even did a blues tribute album to). Bob Daisley witnesses on how the two o

The Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker + Southern harmony musical companion. Very usual suspect though.

As for southern sounding, guitar driven stuff: Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas flood + Can't stop the weather. Essential, but perhaps I'm mister obvious here.

Speaking of Gary Moore and his signature sound. Have you Gary Moore fans out there heard this tribute? 'Gary's gone' by frech guitarist Fred Chapellier: https://open.spotify.com/track/4jAjhpnWbgbCpDzW3hBQow Simply amazing! The playing and the song writing. So 'Gary' it makes me smile :-) On par with John Sykes' brilliant version of Still got the blues from last year's tribute album

Hm.. This could very well be Gary playing on that track - just listened to it for the first time since 1988. The effortless virtousity, the vibrato and the feel of it. Gary Moore is my musical hero #1 and has been for 35 years or so. He does not give himself away easily by using some of his signature tricks on this track (yes, assuming it is him playing). Being the guitarist of Cinderella it

The Fly from Achtung Baby. Makes sense in retrorespect, as a way to introduce a new sound, but upon release it came across as a strange song. Having said that the singles to follow from the album (One, Mysterious ways, Who's gonna ride your horses, Even better than the real thing) all were more of single material.
