The Gary Moore Collection Part II
Gary Moore (1952 – 2011) - Born in Belfast, Gary Moore is considered to be one of the greatest blues rock guitarists of all time. With a career spanning four decades, starting with Skid Row in 1968, alongside a young Philip Lynott, with whom he was to go on to play with in a number of Thin Lizzy line-ups, during the 1970’s. The years 1975 – 1978 saw a move to British jazz-rock band Colosseum II, before a brief return to Thin Lizzy.
After which, he focused on a varied solo career, gaining momentum throughout the 1970s and 80’s, peaking in 1990 with his multi-million selling album, Still Got the Blues.
