Bob Daisley Releases Gary Moore Tribute Album

Bob Daisley: Moore Blues for GaryBob Daisley has just released a new tribute album to guitarist Gary Moore, with whom he had worked for many years. Moore Blues for Gary features a host of incredible guitarists and vocalists paying respects to Moore with Daisley laying down the bass all along the way.

“In my opinion, Gary was one of the best guitarists who ever lived. It was an honor for me to have worked with him and to have known him so well,” Daisley states. “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.”

Moore Blues For Gary is filled out by the likes of Steve Morse, Ricky Warwick, Doug Aldrich, Steve Lukather, Jeff Watson, Damon Johnson, Don Airey, Glenn Hughes, Eric Singer, and more.

It’s no wonder so many came to play on the album. Moore was an influential musician that played in bands from Thin Lizzy to Colosseum II as well as his own solo project that garnered hits with “Parisienne Walkways” and “Out In The Fields.” Daisley, who also famously played with Ozzy Osbourne and Rainbow, talked about working with Moore and the new project in this clip:
