You're welcome and my pleasure.
I linger on every word of every post you make Emerald. You narratives bring alive again the spirit behind the music, and there are no words befitting both the depth of meaning, and appreciation for what you share...I did send almost all my writing and forum posts about Gary to the biographer with my only interest covering all the bases about Gary. I was on the fence about writing my own appreciation of Gary but now I will!
Are folks here interested in a work by myself about Gary?
Sorry if you go back in the thread it says that they have already accepted all my questions and we have to wait for the book to come out.Emerald,
Late to the party on this one....apologies.
Is there was any chance - could you ask what the specific model was and story behind the Trans-Bac/Cobraburst 59 Quilt top that Gary used - specifically int he "one night and Dublin" concert?
He sold Greeny in 2006,to pay some debt due to a deleted tour after an hand injury turned badDid he still have the Peter Green burst? What will happen to his equipment?
you're absolutely right my friend..his sound could had been very different due to the equipment used (i'm still trying to find what's the amp of montreux 1995),but he is always higly recognizable...Had the pleasure of seeing Gary Moore more than a dozen times, from the Donington Monsters of Rock to the Royal Albert Hall show with the Albert's, actually bumped into him at Fat Ricks (aka Vintage and Rare) in London with Graham Lilley.
One thing was quite obvious, no matter what gear he used, he sounded like Gary Moore. Saw him with Soldano's, Fenders, Marshalls (from Plexi's to JCM 2000's ) playing Les Pauls, PRS's, 335's, Les Paul DC's and no matter what combination, the sound was still him. You could buy a vintage bluesbreaker combo, one of the original Marshall Guv'nor pedals , a '59 Les Paul with Dean Markley 10's..but without his ear, fingers, technique and passion, never going to be the same.
Glauco, I attempted to co-write Gary's autobiography back in 2007 but I am connected with this new biography only by the invitation of Harry Shapiro the official biographer.So..no answer but only in your book?
Thanks for that info.I asked Dave last night about that guitar he did that was destined for Gary. It was a full aged makeover on a Historic that belonged to Ace, owner of Area59/DMC. Ace was going to give the guitar to Gary. After Gary's passing, Dave shipped the guitar back to Ace. From there, it ended up being owned by a guitarist in a Queen tribute band. Dave couldn't remember the guy's name or if the guitarist was in England or Australia.
He still have that red Strat?
He want to sell said red Strat?
Or donate it to a willing player?
And the amp thing as well.
