Additional information about this Gary Moore vinyl art.

Gary Moore – The Artist

Robert William Gary Moore, better known as Gary Moore (1952 – 2011) was a Northern Irish rock guitarist and singer-songwriter. Starting his career in the 1960s, Moore played with Phil Lynott and Brian Downey during his teenage years, leading him to memberships of the Irish bands Skid Row and Thin Lizzy, and British band Colosseum II. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock musicians as B.B. King, Albert King, John Mayall, Jack Bruce, Albert Collins, George Harrison, and Greg Lake, as well as having a solo career.

Parisienne Walkways – The Song

Parisienne Walkways is a song by guitarist Gary Moore that reached number 8 in the UK Singles Chart in May 1979. The song is featured on Moore’s album Back on the Streets and features a vocal from Thin Lizzy frontman, Phil Lynott, who co-wrote the song with Moore. Lynott also played bass guitar on the track, alongside Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey, thus reuniting the short-lived 1974 Thin Lizzy line-up which had recorded “Still in Love with You” and the single “Little Darling”. The melody of “Parisienne Walkways” is based on the jazz standard “Blue Bossa” by Kenny Dorham. It was Gary Moore’s signature song.

Les Paul Guitar – The Shape

The Gibson Les Paul is a solid body electric guitar that was first sold by the Gibson Guitar Corporation in 1952. The Les Paul was designed by Gibson president Ted McCarty, factory manager John Huis and their team, along with guitarist/inventor Les Paul. Its design typically comprises a solid mahogany body with a carved maple top and a single cutaway, a mahogany set-in neck with a rosewood fretboard, two pickups with independent volume and tone controls, and a stoptail bridge, although variants exist. It was the signature guitar of rock / blues guitarist Gary Moore
