Don’t Stop Believing – with so many friends of mine going through rough financial times in today’s turbulent economy, I can’t help but think of the 80′s Pop hit, “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey.
In times of adversity, Greatness stands up and out. Never give up or give in. #SSG
And now I give you with the Amazing Journey song that has inspired millions and hopefully inspires you to NEVER give up!
Song of the Day: Edwyn Collins “A Girl Like You” I remember when this song came out. It’s recording style was not only unique but very creative. Edwyn’s step into the past brought Us into the present with a 60s themed Pop song that was simply, addictive. Brilliant.
Edwyn is an amazing and inspiring artist. Especially with his struggles and a long road to recovery after a double cerebral hemorrhage in 2005. Here’s Edwyn and the Band from a French TV Show in 1996 performing “A Girl Like You” Live. Enjoy
Gary Moore – Amazing guitarist was one of the greatest Rock n’ Roll, Blues and Heavy Metal guitarists of all Time. I am shocked and saddened with the news of the sudden passing of Gary Moore. He was a multi-talented and versatile master of his instrument who playing was technically far beyond that of most artists and especially of today’s most popular artists. He was fast, fierce, raw, loud, had incredible guitar tone, amazing vibrato, he could sing, he was an incredible songwriter who not only wrote about the struggles in his homeland of Belfast but also could write touching and moving ballads.
Check out Empty Rooms, Always Gonna Love You and especially Parisienne Walkways to name a few. Gary just blew you out of the water.

His 1982 LP Corridors of Power was a lightning rod for the rock n’ roll and Heavy Metal movement just check out Gary’s version of “Shapes of Things.”
Sadly, amazing artist’s like Gary Moore have gone virtually unnoticed in the United States due to a heavy over commercialization of the music industry.
Gary played the guitar with such an intense passion that at times it seemed he was attacking his instrument with a fierce determination and vigor. And for that, we loved him. And so rightly as one of the titles of his Live LP proclaimed, “We want Moore.”
Gary Moore – We Want Moore!
All of Us die-hard fans and guitarists in the United States never got enough. We were always wanting Moore but learned to live with less. Thank God for YouTube where we could always checked out live videos posted from European concerts.
Gary was one of the rare musicians who always brought the noise and was “switched on” show after show, night after night. It truly was amazing. Sadly, he rarely toured the United States, I think I only saw him once in Los Angeles, but his passion and tenacity never waivered. Even with low record sales and a long series of unknown LPs here in the United States Gary continued to kick ass. All the while Gary was huge in his home of Ireland, United Kingdom, Europe and Japan.
Although those LPs are almost unknown in the States they are filled with a lot of awesome guitar shredding and some amazingly well crafted songs. Gary played with the greatest musicians in the world during those LPs, Phil Lynott, Bob Daisley (who played bass with Randy Rhoads and Ozzy), Cozy Powell on drums (who has sadly passed), Ian Paice (from Deep Purple), Glenn Hughes, the list goes on and on.
It’s a sad day, Gary Moore will truly be missed. Maybe now with his death people will come to know, respect and enjoy his huge body of work here in the States. Finally, there will a Gary Moore and Phil Lynott reunion concert. Although this time, it’s in heaven.
Thank you Gary for sharing your incredible music and enriching all of our lives. You had a huge impact on my life as a musician. Below is my tribute of a few of his countless awesome songs for you to checkout and enjoy. A Few of my favorite Gary Moore LPs to check out: Corridors of Power, Victims of the Future, Run for Cover, We Want Moore!, Wild Frontier, After the War and Still Got the Blues.
RIP Gary Moore.
