Hello to all Gary Moore fans!

Pleased to report that after three years work, the book is finished. All that remains is to finalise the publishing arrangements and then the book can go into production. The current target publication date is February next year. Sad to note though that recently we have lost Jack Bruce and Craig Gruber who were both very cooperative on the book.

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.
