Jimmy Bain

I am remiss not putting this on at the time but I was very sad to hear of Jimmy's passing. He was a true character and I am forever indebted to him and Brian for introducing me to the world of R&R! It might not have always been the easiest ride but it was never dull!

Craig Gruber

Very sad to hear of the death of dear Craig earlier this month. He was a nice fellow and a solid player, racking up a good 'pedigree' along the way. There is a rather poignant picture of the 1984 Gary Moore band featuring Craig and Bobby Chouinard that was on Facebook.....sadly I am now the only one still around. A great pity to see these fine musicians passing.

Classic Rock

Quite an interesting article in April's Classic Rock mag about UFO. Nice to read our different 'takes' on events! Bless them!!

Guitar sale!

Hi everyone!

I have decided to sell a couple of my guitars, ones that were recent purchases and that will no longer be needed for obvious and very sad reasons. I am (for those that may worry!) keeping the 'special' ones, my black Les Paul and the Gretch White Falcon Gary gave me as a present last year, but there is no reason to hold on to anything else.

I will post more details soon with some pictures. Any interested parties can contact me through the site once I have sorted it all out.

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

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!
