Gary Moore has been one of my fave guitarists ever since I heard him with Thin Lizzy back in the seventies. I then closely followed his hard-rock/metal solo career in the ’80s, before he got the blues bigtime in 1990.
At one point in the interview I asked him about a story I’d read in Guitar Player about him acquiring the 1959 Les Paul formerly owned by his hero, Peter Green. (Moore ended up selling it for a ton of money many years later, and now it’s in the collection of Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett.)
