    I always listened to "Still got the blues" on the radio without knowing who sings it. It's one of those songs that touch everyone's heart. Had no idea about this guy but somehow I feel weird.

    Not a big fan either but I always thought he could play his ass off. He sounds absolutely huge in this clip



    He must have been using some big strings and really beating the shit out of them to get those sounds.

    I've seen him a few times,including an excellent show with Thin Lizzie.I think his best playing was on the "We want Moore" tour,right after "Corridoors of power" and "Victims of the future".He did an awesome cover of the Yardbirds song "Shapes of things". This clip is from the Gary Moore documentry.He's probably the best Guitar player at those stacatto downstroke artificial pinch harmonics,that Srat has a haunting sound to it.Speaking of harmonics,here's "End of the world "with a crazy solo intro from the same show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40OR-...eature=related
