Bonamassa and Moore play bluesy rock things Floral Gary Moore Back the blues shirt that speaks similarly, lyrically, to the things Blues addresses. But the music is clearly not real Blues. It is Blues Rock, which is rock and roll with a blues attitude, sort of. Don’t get me wrong. I like Moore and Bonamassa. I’m not their biggest fan, but I do like some things they do. They do them very well. And the writing is often very good as well. But please, do not call it Blues when it is Blues Rock. Real Blues needs to be preserved as an art form, as a real genre. Blurring the lines and making people believe it is still Blues does a disservice to the Blues, and to Rock. Because they are very different art forms. So many notes take away from the FEELING one note can have, which those long flurries of notes just cannot express fully as that one note. That is part of why Blues purists really hate when people think Moore and Bonamassa are Blues players. They are, not as a rule.

Best Floral Gary Moore Back the blues shirt
All that being said, yes, Gary Moore was easily better Floral Gary Moore Back the blues shirt than 15 of those guitarists, if not 50 of them. But I am not at all surprised to see him absent, given the source. The booklet says “Cover concept: Gary Moore” and “Photography: Gered Mankowitz”, which sort of leads me to suspect that both covers were staged and photographed by Mr. Mankowitz. If the front cover had been original there would have been a separate credit to Gary’s mum or so. He acted like he had a bit of a “buzz”, which he likely did. But my band toured with him 4 times and he was always ready to talk guitar, especially blues. He was a very charming person and one of the greatest modern blues guitarists. Almost every night he would come to my room ready to chat guitar, which usually turned into acoustic jams. He always complimented me, but he could SCREAM on acoustic as well as electric. He was also very knowledgeable about music and how to make an acoustic sound awesome.
