As previously reported, a Gary Moore tribute titled Moore Blues For Gary, and featuring artists such as Steve Lukather, Danny Bowes, Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner, Steve Morse, John Sykes, Neil Carter, Doug Aldrich, Eric Singer and more, will be released on October 26th.
The song Still Got The Blues (For You) featuring Danny Bowes (vocals), John Sykes (guitar), Don Airey (keyboards), Bob Daisley (bass), Rob Grosser (drums), can be streamed below.
Moore Blues For Gary is the brainchild of Bob Daisley (Rainbow, Ozzy Osbourne), who had played bass with Moore since the early Eighties.
“In my opinion, Gary was one of the best guitarists who ever lived,” Bob Daisley said in a statement. “It was an honor for me to have worked with him and to have known him so well.”
Daisley continued, “When Gary passed away in 2011, the world lost one of the all-time greats. I don’t think that enough was said or done at the time to acknowledge the loss of such a great player so I took it upon myself to pay personal tribute to the man and record some new versions of his music, mostly from his blues catalog.
I asked many members of the Gary Moore family tree, and some other great players, to contribute to the project. The response was not only encouraging but very moving. It seems that the name Gary Moore is also synonymous with the words ‘respect,’ ‘honor’ and ‘greatness.’
I didn’t set out to recreate anything that Gary had done, or to compete in any way. These arrangements and performances represent a ‘hats off’ to Gary and nothing more.
Long live the memory of Robert William Gary Moore. Yes, he was another ‘Bob’ — something that I wasn’t aware of for all of those years that I worked with him.
I feel such gratitude towards the people who contributed to this album and I’m honored to have worked with them all.”
