gary moore



After joining the group Skid Row with Noel Bridgeman and Brendan "Brush" Shiels, in mid 1968, cutting a number of singles and an album, released in 1970, Skid Row then went on to play shows across Europe and the USA, opening for a number of high profile bands. It was with this group that Gary Moore earned a reputation in the music industry, and his association with Phil Lynott began. Moore left the band in December 1971.

He served as an artillery officer in the Army before becoming a senior vice-president of investments at Paine Webber in the 1980s. Gary considered attending seminary.

He also founded his own investment firm, Gary Moore & Company, to serve as “counsel to ethical and spiritual investors.” As a result, he has advised some of America’s most well-known ministries, churches, banks, and individual investors. He has also authored many articles about integrating religion, or spirituality, and ethics with personal financial management and political economy.Gary has served in the following capacities: as a trustee of Robert Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral, chairing the church’s endowment committee; as a trustee on the investment committee of Messiah College; as a board member of the John Templeton Foundation; as a board advisor to Bill Bennett and Jack Kemp in Enpower America; as a lay leader of both Lutheran and the Episcopal churches; and as a financial commentator for UPI Radio and Skylight Radio Network.

Gary and Sherry’s son, Garrett, was more recently made a squire in the Order.Gary and his family reside in Sarasota, Florida.

Moore picked up a battered acoustic guitar at the age of ten. He started performing at a young age, making his live debut in a school band, during the intermission of one of his father's promoted shows. Before getting his first quality guitar (a Fender Telecaster) at the age of 14, and learning to play the right-handed instrument in the standard way, despite being left-handed.

Iako je prvi samostalni album Grinding Stone snimio 1973., odlaskom iz sastava Thin Lizzy (1978.) zapravo počinje njegova samostalna karijera. Pravi uspjeh (kako glazbeni, tako i komercijalni) postiže albumom Still Got the Blues na kojem su sudjelovali B. B. King, Albert King te Albert Collins. Album je označio odmak od rocka prema bluesu, što je bilo znakovito i na albumima izdanima nakon ovoga.

No traces of any illegal drugs were found in his body. Former Thin Lizzy guitarist Moore died at the Kempinski Resort Hotel in Estepona hours after starting a six-day holiday with his new partner. Hours earlier the pair were seen washing down a snack at the hotel bar with champagne and brandy. His girlfriend raised the alarm around 4am on February 6 last year. An initial post-mortem revealed he had died of a heart attack. Chemical and toxicology studies were carried out at a lab in Seville along with an examination of the musician's cells and tissue samples. Police confirmed at the time the 58-year-old rocker died they were not treating it as suspicious. An investigating magistrate who opened a standard inquiry to determine the exact cause of death is now expected to close the probe and pave the way for an inquest in the UK where Moore was living. The acclaimed Belfast-born musician, rated as one of the finest guitarists of his generation, was best known for his time in Thin Lizzy. He played on their chart hits Waiting For An Alibi and Do Anything You Want To. He also teamed up with Thin Lizzy frontman and fellow Irishman Phil Lynott for the top ten solo hits Parisienne Walkways and Out In The Fields. Lynott died in 1986 after battling drink and drug problems. In recent years Gary Moore forged a new career as a blues musician, releasing critically-acclaimed albums and performing with legends BB King and Bob Dylan. Bob Geldof described him after his death as "one of the greatest blues players of all time." Thin Lizzy founding member Brian Downey said at the time: "He will always be in my thoughts and prayers."

Robert William Gary Moore (Belfast, 4. travnja 1952. - Estepona, 6. veljače 2011.) bio je britanski glazbenik, pjevač, gitarist i tekstopisac. Kasnih šezdesetih i početkom sedamdesetih godina 20. stoljeća bio je članom sastava Skid Row (u kojem je i započeo karijeru) te Thin Lizzy i Colosseum II.

During a relationship in the late 60´s while he was with Skid Row, his eldest daughter, Saoirse was born. He was married from 1985 to 1993 and had two sons, Jack and Gus.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Moore's fatal heart attack was brought on by a massive amount of alcohol he had consumed the evening of his death. Moore had 380 mg of alcohol per decilitre (100 millilitres) of blood (0.38%) in his system, which meant he was five times the legal drink driving limit. Blood alcohol content from 0.40% to 0.50% is considered to be lethal.

A non-profit organization, The Financial Seminary has a purpose of “transforming hearts, souls, and minds over money.” The Financial Seminary does this by reintegration of spirit and ethics, regardless of religious orientation, into political-economy and personal finances.

Moore grew up on Castleview Road opposite Stormont Parliament Buildings, off the Upper Newtownards Road in east Belfast, as one of five children of Bobby, a promoter, and Winnie, a housewife. He left the city as a teenager, because of troubles in his family – his parents parted a year later – just as The Troubles were starting in Northern Ireland.

Prior to the recording of Corridors of Power, Gary had joined Greg Lake to help finish the recording of his first solo record Greg Lake after the demise of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Gary toured with the Greg Lake band and recorded a second Greg Lake solo record, but didn't tour it. A number of hard rock albums were released during the 1980s, with which Gary became disillusioned with after the release of After the War , prompting the recording of the album,Still Got the Blues , in 1990.

In 1968, after performing with a number of Belfast-based bands, Gary Moore, at the age of 16, was "headhunted" as the replacement guitarist in the Dublin-based band Skid Row and he moved to Dublin. Moore's greatest influence in the early days was English guitarist Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac who was a mentor to Moore when performing in Dublin.

In July 1979, he left Thin Lizzy permanently to focus on a possible solo career, but went on to form the short lived band G-Force recording an album for Jet Records. A couple of other albums were made at this time, but not released until after Gary had signed to, and found some success with Virgin Records in 1982, and had released the album Corridors of Power.

Released in March 1990, Still Got the Blues, with contributions from Albert King, Albert Collins, and George Harrison, saw Gary Moore returning to the musical form that had inspired him in his early days in Belfast. The album was well received by fans and was certified Gold in the U.S. Peter Green's continued influence on Moore was repaid as a tribute to Green on his 1995 album Blues for Greeny, an album consisting entirely of Green compositions. On this tribute album, Moore played Green's 1959 Les Paul Standard guitar that Green had lent to Moore after leaving Fleetwood Mac. Moore ultimately purchased the guitar, at Green's request, so that "it would have a good home". Moore stayed with the blues format until 1997. He returned to rock, but with a softer, more pop and ballad-oriented sound on Dark Days in Paradise, followed with another change of direction in 1999, when he decided to experiment with modern dance beats on A Different Beat; this left many fans, as well as the music press, confused.

Gary Moore died of a heart attack in his sleep at the age of 58 during the early hours of 6 February 2011. At the time, he was on holiday with his girlfriend at the Kempinski Hotel in Estepona, Spain. After a quiet dinner, they went for a walk on the beach before going up to their room. His girlfriend raised the alarm at 4:00 am, and tried to give him a heart massage. His death was confirmed by Thin Lizzy's manager, Adam Parsons.

Jack Moore performed a tribute on his guitar, that had belonged to his father, alongside Danny Young in the form of a music video around the anniversary of his father's birthday, in April 2017. The song was named Phoenix, which was written and performed by both Jack Moore and Danny Young.

The musician suffered a heart attack brought on by the massive amount of booze he knocked back at the start of a sunshine holiday, the studies showed. He had 380mg of alcohol per decilitre of blood in his system, more than 30mg the amount associated with fatalities and just short of the 416mg Amy Winehouse had in her body when she died surrounded by three empty vodka bottles. The legal limit for driving in the UK is 80mg of alcohol per decilitre of blood. In most European countries including Spain where drink-drink limits are lower, he would have been nearly eight times over the permitted amount to drive. The tests also revealed father-of-three Moore, found dead in bed at a luxury Costa del Sol hotel last February, had abused alcohol for years.

On February 6th, 2011, musician Gary Moore passed away. He was acknowledged as one of the finest guitarists that the British Isles has ever produced.Gary Moore, 1952 - 2011

Gary Moore's eldest son Jack, alongside his uncle Cliff Moore, performed the traditional song "Danny Boy" at his father's funeral. This was reported in the Belfast Telegraph as a flawless tribute at which some mourners in the church wept openly.

Other early musical influences were artists such as Albert King, Elvis Presley, The Shadows, Buddy Guy and The Beatles. Later, having seen Jimi Hendrix and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers in his home town of Belfast, his own style was developing into a blues-rock sound that would be the dominant form of his career in music.

Since 1997, he was living with his partner, an artist named Jo, and their daughter Lily (b. 1998). In 2003, he had bought a five-bedroom detached Edwardian house in Hove, just west of Brighton, Sussex, to be near his sons. At the time of his death, his residence was reported to be on Vallance Gardens in Hove, East Sussex.

Also associated with a 1961 Fender Stratocaster, which was purchased by Gary Moore in 1981. The guitar was almost sold to Greg Lake ex of Emerson, Lake and Palmer who was originally viewing the guitar, but Gary Moore had tried it out and liked the sound of the guitar acoustically. Gary had his fingers crossed and thinking ‘please don’t buy it, please don’t buy it!’ Greg passed on the guitar as it was not in pristine condition, and so Gary made a deal and the guitar was his. The Red Strat also known as the Pink Strat was extensively used by Gary on Corridors of Power along with many other recording sessions, over the years. The Red Strat was seen on many live performances, most notably at the Fender 50th Anniversary show held at Wembley Arena, north London, in 2004. When Gary performed Red House, by Jimi Hendrix. The neck pickup was rewound by well known pickup maker Seymour Duncan in 1998. Fender Guitars launched a custom shop tribute replica of the Red Strat, in 2016, which was undertaken by Fender master builder John Cruz.

Gary began an informal study regarding management of world wealth and later founded The Financial Seminary to build bridges between the financial and moral communities. He also founded his own investment firm, Gary Moore & Company, to serve as “counsel to ethical and spiritual investors.” As a result, he has advised some of America’s most well-known ministries, churches, banks, and individual investors. He has also authored many articles about integrating religion, or spirituality, and ethics with personal financial management and political economy.

Gary Moore was associated with many guitar brands over his career but the guitar Gary was most associated with was the Gibson Les Paul. Gary Moore's 1959 Les Paul Standard guitar was famed for its distinctive out-of-phase sound attributed to a possible pickup repair, where by the magnet in the neck pickup had been flipped, causing the out of phase sound when combined with the bridge pickup. The guitar was originally owned by Peter Green. Green sold the guitar to his younger friend Gary Moore in 1974 for the price that Gary got from selling a Gibson SG, his main guitar at that time. Gary used the guitar over the next 30 plus years, on hits such as Parisienne Walkways, which was his best-known song. The guitar is now owned by Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett who purchased the guitar, a number of years after Gary had sold it, for an undisclosed amount.
