To celebrate the Birthday of legendary Irish guitarist Gary Moore, who passed away back in 2011. Gary made his mark in the early part of his career by playing with bands Skid Row and the legendary Irish rock band Thin Lizzy. The latter part of his career, Mr. Moore went back to his original passion, Blues.
Gary Moore recorded collaboration albums, where he invited some of his heroes to play with him. The collaborations built his reputation as a blues guitarist and helped in many ways to relaunch his career. Here we will take a look at some of his best collaborations.

This is a great example how collaboration is all about fitting in the mix, rather than standing out from the crowd. Gary joins John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and his guitar sit in the mix beautifully.
