The bassist and singer Glenn Hughes (Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath) said in an interview with Rockin’ Metal Revival (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) that the late guitarist Gary Moore was the best one he ever performed with. He also praised musicians like Joe Bonamassa, Ritchie Blackmore, Joe Satriani, Tony Iommi and Brian May.
“I wanna go on record now. I’m going to list a few for you. I played with Satriani, Bonamassa, Iommi and Blackmore and Pat Thrall and Brian May and Jerry Cantrell and Warren Haynes. I could go on and list them. And Mel Galley and Tommy Bolin. I mean, I could carry on. But my favorite… I really want you to push this one. My dearest old friend — we started working together in 1979, Gary Moore was the best.”
“Now, people, understand me now, Gary and I were very close. We made the album ‘Run For Cover’. When I look back at Gary, and I look back at Gary and I working together and him playing in my studio and sitting in my home on the couch writing songs, that guy was un-be-lie-va-ble. I mean, un-be-lie-va-ble. Again, all those people I spoke about [are] iconic guitar players. I mean, I’ve played with them all, and I’m very proud to say. Bonamassa right now is… I mean, Joe’s incredible. And Ritchie [and] Tony. But Gary Moore…” Glenn Hughes said.
Gary Moore passed away back in February 6, 2011 in Spain victim of a heart attack at the age of 58.
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
