Mrs.ayh has a Gary Moore video from the 80s called Emerald Aisles Live In Ireland.It's produced by NFL Films.I guess they need something to do in the off season.The narrator is the same dude who does the football highlights every week.

It's full of shreding guitar and bad 80s haircuts(now I remember why I stopped playin electric guitar back then)
Philip makes a couple of appearances.He does unfortunately have a chemical abusers color & bloat goin on.He must have had about a year or so to live

The NFL guy says,"Gary has appeared to have open up a cut over his eye during an agressive guitar move"

Phil ,ever the joker says,"He was using too much treble"

Gary played the solo on Still In Love With You from the Nightlife album, never getting the credit for it. Brian Robertson played the solo on Don't Believe A Word from the Johnny The Fox Album.

I speak the truth, honestly!!

That is a tough damn question. I like all of the lineups, but oddly, I really like Sykes on Thunder and Lightning. That album just really kicks ass. I am the biggest Gary Moore fan in the world too.

I have all of Thin Lizzy's stuff, and really love all of it. But Thunder and Lightning just hits me right on the head.

Chinatown is a close second w/Snowy. Jailbreak is great, but SO OVERPLAYED.

I really felt Gary Moore was best doing his own thing. The first record I heard from Gary was Victims of the Future. Heh heh, that album is still in my top ten of all time.

No sweat, MK, just want to get the facts straight. :)

Hell, if there is an earlier version of DBAW, I for one want to know about it. ;)

Cheers for now

Jailbreak is correct ... Robbo plays the solo on DBaW. Moore plays the solo on the original SiLwY but Robbo's version on Live and Dangerous is the classic rendition. Robbo is the man! :-)

Thanks Dan.

By the way - all Lizzy fans should check out the Rock Legend website: http://www.thin-lizzy.com/

Keep smiling. :)

I think that I mixed it up with another story about robbo playing the solo gary used to do on the slow/fast version during tours later on, and that he didn't want to admit it until recently. I think I read it in a classic rock issue...

Not to wake the thread from the dead...ok maybe. But I just heard Black Rose again on 3WK Radio...I love that album completely, best EQd TL album. But for sentimental reasons Gorham/Robertson will always have that place en mi corazon.

In 76 when Jail came out, my HS band tried to play their stuff. We had the best drummer in the region, but his head was into getting together a normal life, marriage/kids and a TV news anchor job in Abilene.
I miss his talent.

But GM sure smoked on that album. Man what a riffer. I bought Back In The Streets after getting hip to him...shred mang.

Black Rose with Moore is their best sounding record. Moore plays solos that make me want to cry (see title track).


this.

as much as I will always rate the classic lineup above all others, the BR lp has some epic solo work by GM & Scott too (WFAA)..what an album.

have u guys hear the original/extended version of Waiting For An Alibi ?:

Valentino got nowhere to go
On his own like Romeo
Blow by blow he watches his money go
Now he's oh so low

but i've been scooping up all the deluxe editions & rare live stuff i can find of the classic lineup. at least we got 5 years of the Boys.

question: what phaser did Scott use ? MXR ? all the live YT clips u see/hear Scott on phaser.

actually alot more than i realized at the time..lotta tracks he's pushing phase shift; and to great effect.

what a band.

This band changed my life once. Cheers and am so jealous to anyone who got to see them when they were a band.

I like Robbo, i'm a robbo guy. Loved that slight slap back and the wah sound he got. Also the guy played on IMO the best motorhead album to boot!

I partied with them after the "boys are back in town" tour in Santa Monica, ca

It was the family party, I knew Brad Gorham, cousin to Scott Gorham. many excellent deli meats and cheeses were on the munchie table and it was great getting to know the guys for a short time. Lots of Foster's beer (one of their favorites) were consumed!

They left at like 2am to go to the fan party :shock: , lol....

Asimov:Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
