Gary Moore: the last great guitar hero

Gary Moore has delighted entire generations with his passionate guitar playing driving rock with Thin Lizzy, fusion with Colosseum II in the seventies, heavy metal in the eighties and blues rock in the nineties.
Yet the real Gary Moore was hidden in plain sight. In interviews he gave little away. But featuring exclusive interviews with close family, friends and musicians, acclaimed rock biographer Harry Shapiro takes the reader on an exciting journey which begins with Gary as a guitar prodigy in war torn Ireland and on through the many highs and lows that Gary endured as he carved his own place in rock history.
Despite his early death in 2011, Gary Moore still has legions of devoted fans across the world who will be enthralled by this unique insight into the life of a guitar genius who did it his way and whose music lives on.

Harry Shapiro set standards for rock literature with his Jimi Hendrix biography Electric Gypsy alongside widely praised biographies of Eric Clapton, Alexis Korner, Graham Bond and Jack Bruce.
