As you probably know already it was recorded at Hippodrome in London on 25th October 2007. Gary Moore, Darrin Mooney and Dave Bronze have played a great set of Jimi Hendirx classics, and Hendrix' old band mates, Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell are also joined to Gary in the finale to play together three of the biggest Jimi Hendrix songs. Both discs will contain the same material, all the 12 songs as listed below. The release date is 6th October 2014. This CD+DVD set will be out on a lower price, so now you can get both of the discs on the price of the previously released DVD version.

The missing piece: The Prisoner

Click here for larger imageI've just discovered it by accident, but gladly sharing this interesting video with all of you. For long years I've just heard about it as an existing, but still missing item. Then the CD reissue of the Dr. Strangely Strange album, "Heavy Petting" finally gave us some excerpts from the music (which was recorded in September 1983), but still wasn't that much chance to see the original animated film with the complete soundtrack featuring Gary Moore on acoustic and electric lead guitar.  ...or maybe we've been trying to reach it from the wrong direction. Probably it wasn't that rare for those who are interested in the animted short films and its history. Anyway, around a year ago, Tim Booth (the singer and guitarist of Dr. Strangely Strange) uploaded his film to a video sharing page, so now as I was updating the discography/session pages of our website, I've made some quick research for Dr. Strangely Strange materials as well, and found it!

New Gary Moore live album in September!

Click here for larger imageEagle Records will release a new Gary Moore live album this autumn, under the title "Live At Bush Hall 2007". Right before the UK tour the band played a special album launch gig of the Close As You Get record - which was an 'invited-only' concert at the Bush Hall in London on the 17th of May in 2007. The concert was broadcasted by the Planet Rock radio, so you might have the recording of it (the radio broadcast was roughly one hour), but it will be great to have an official CD version of this special concert with a pro sound and with a longer tracklist, including two songs what Gary never played again on the tour after this concert. As Eagle Records confirmed, the scheduled release date is 22nd September.

The Book - Message from the author

Hello to all Gary Moore fans!

As most of you will know by now, I am writing the official biography and Zoli asked me to give you all an update. I have already written biographies of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, Alexis Korner, Graham Bond plus articles for Mojo, Classic Rock and their Blues magazine and other magazines.

After two years of research, I have finally started writing the book. Why has it taken so long to get to this point? Well, I work full time for a UK drugs charity called DrugScope and I have interviewed over 100 people for this book, the most for any of my books apart from Jimi Hendrix. But in that case, I had somebody working with me, who conducted a number of the interviews on my behalf. This time, I am on my own. And of course, I work during the day, musicians work at night and are touring, so you can see how time can fly past trying to set things up. But I have to say that everybody has been very cooperative and happy to share their memories of Gary.
