Another interesting week finally got my Harley going again , had to get a blue slip as it has been off the road due to my operations etc etc. Went for a ride which was really great fun to do as it has been so long between rides, had an accident which did nothing to the bike that was great, but I shattered my right arm above the elbow. So I am out of action for a period. Back to more rehab.
The good news is that the “MOORE BLUES FOR GARY” is getting closer to the release date 26t Oct. In the meantime the record company has put out an MP3 for people to download or hear on youtube
Here is the link,
This track features Bob Daisley (Ozzy Osbourne, Gary Moore), Danny Bowes (Thin Lizzy), John Sykes )Thin Lizzy, White Snake), Don Airey (Deep Purple, Uriah Heap, Ozzy Osbourne) me on drums
Hope you like it
TRIBUTE TO GARY MOORE by BOB DAISLEY
NEW CD TO BE RELEASED OCT 26TH
"MOORE BLUES FOR GARY"
INFO FROM GUITAR WORLD
A new tribute album dedicated to the late Gary Moore is to be released later this year.
Titled Moore Blues For Gary, the collection was put together by Bob Daisley who invited a range of artists to rework a selection of Moore classics. The 13-track record will launch on October 26 via earMUSIC.
Joining Daisley on the album are artists including Steve Lukather, Danny Bowes, Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner, Steve Morse, John Sykes, Neil Carter, Doug Aldrich, Eric Singer and more.
Bassist and producer Daisley says: “In my opinion, Gary was one of the best guitarists who ever lived. It was an honour for me to have worked with him and to have known him so well.
“When Gary passed away in 2011, the world lost one of the all-time greats. I don’t think that enough was said or done at the time to acknowledge the loss of such a great player, so I took it upon myself to pay personal tribute to the man and record some new versions of his music, mostly from his blues catalogue.
“I asked many members of the Gary Moore family tree, and some other great players, to contribute to the project. The response was not only encouraging, but very moving. It seems that the name Gary Moore is also synonymous with the words ‘respect’, ‘honour’ and ‘greatness’.
“I didn’t set out to recreate anything that Gary had done, or to compete in any way. These arrangements and performances represent a ‘hats off’ to Gary and nothing more.
“Long live the memory of Robert William Gary Moore. I feel such gratitude towards the people who contributed to this album and I’m honoured to have worked with them all.”

NEWS JULY 2018
The last 2 years have been interesting times for my family and me
I had 2 shoulder replacements and the lower part of my back was fused. I was getting a lot of nerve pain which was making it extremely hard to move / as well as reach for anything or even walking. The doctors/specialists were fantastic as all the operations were successful but a lot of time was spent in rehab. The cause of all this according to one specialist was I was playing too much.
One album I had been working on was with good friend BOB DAISLEY, BASS, (OZZY OSBOURNE , GARY MOORE , BLACK SABBATH). BOB was great as he encouraged me to do the album and by playing whenever I felt comfortable strength wise
The album was a dedication to GARY MOORE who Bob had recorded 7 albums plus many tours with him. The album is called “MOORE BLUES FOR GARY” and was a labour of love for BOB
BOB also managed to get his friends on the album that were friends of GARYS or influenced by his playing.
