One of rock's more underrated guitarists, Gary Moore's eclectic career traversed blues, heavy metal, progressive rock, and jazz fusion and, in addition to finding success as a solo act, he was associated with numerous different bands, most notably Thin Lizzy. A native of Belfast, Moore came up in the same Northern Irish scene as Phil Lynott and he served as Thin Lizzy's guitarist several times during the band's original run in the 1970s and early '80s. As a solo artist, he scored a surprise hit with 1978's bluesy "Parisienne Walkways" before transitioning into heavy metal and hard rock throughout the '80s. Moore's success never translated to the U.S., though he earned a significant fan base, particularly in Europe. Tiring of the commercial demands of hard rock, he reconnected with his blues roots on the 1990 standout Still Got the Blues.
