Gary Moore

I have written a tribute to Gary which I hope you will read. It will in time be added to.

GARY MOORE - A PERSONAL TRIBUTE

Gary Moore

Dear Neil,

my deepest sympathies go to you and Gary's family. Only one person is missing & the whole world is empty. Nothing refills the wide gap the death of a beloved one leave to us. An important piece of my youth is gone. Oh my goodness, Gary opened my door to rockmusic. I was a little girl about 13/14 years (born in 1976) when i first saw the VHS "Emerald Isles - Live in Ireland". I still love it. It's so funny to see Gary and Phill laughing during the interviews. I love Gary's guitar play, the profound lyrics, the irish influences, his warm voice. At most of his music i love his rocksongs.

I was so lucky when i read that he wanted to record a new rock album. Unfortunately i never saw Gary live in concert.......know it is to late. So sad........

Gary Moore

 Neil i would personally like to express my sorrow and to be honest disbelief at the loss of your friend Gary Moore . I have been a huge fan of Gary's since i was 12 years old (im now 42 ) . I must say it left me totally empty , and completely gutted . Words cannot describe what a loss this is to the guitar world . Heaven only knows , what it must be like for yourself as a friend and musical partner . For me Gary Moore was the greatest british guitarist of my generation , and can never be replaced . I simply can't believe it . Im sure everyone else on your website thinks so too .    

ufo , an opportunity missed or the great decline

Hi Neil , i must says its great to see you playing again . Ive seen you on stage with both UFO and Gary Moore over the years , and im looking forward to seeing you onstage in the UK soon . 

A question i would like to ask you is , one thing that has always been levelled at UFO is that they never achieved perhaps what they could have . When you joined the band , was there a feeling that they could have still hit the hights of perhaps AC/DC , RUSH , or IRON MAIDEN , or do you think the band was very much on the decline . I have read Martin Popoff's book , and i have to say its a bit unclear as to who the band hold responsible for perhaps shall we say mis-management .

And here we go................

Back on the 'road', a very bumpy one here as the roads are somewhat unpredictable. We are receiving a very warm response from the Ukraine concert go'ers and they have responded well to the old and new material. Only Odessa to go then on to Russia! I must wrap up!

Ukraine/Russia

This seems to be approaching fast now! I look forward to playing for Gary's fans in this new part of the world for me and am staggered by the distances involved.......what an adventure to be sure!

Rest.....................!

I am now having a well earned rest after all the madness. We have Pinkpop Classic on the 14th in Holland which should be a giggle and that is the last of this run of shows. Then back to 'normal' for a while....what a strange life I lead!

And....more!

Saturday is High Voltage...looking forward to this, the first gig I have done in the UK since 1989! We then go to Italy then Mala Skala in the Czech Republic to round this month off. What a time it has been and how excellent the response to this new/old venture for Gary.

Goodness me...............

And this last week.........surreal or what! I have gone from the glamour of Montreux (names, names, names) to examining in Sidcup! But strangely, I am really enjoying both equally! We had a very good gig in Norway on Friday last week...really up to speed so hopefully all bodes well for 'High Voltage' on the 24th. I have a busy week this week and then on Saturday it's Nice then Bucharest........OMG!

And.............

I am currently in Andover examining ahead of a small run of gigs with Gary Moore. I am looking forward to revisiting Montreux...............I shall pay my respects at Fred's statue!
