Watch guitarist Danny Young’s tribute to the late Gary Moore, ispired by his birthday on early of April, it would-be 65th birthday (Gary was born on April 4, 1952). Danny perform the tune on his Epiphone Les Paul Standard equipped with Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Greenie pickups , which recreate a very specific Peter Green-style PAF tone and reamp on a Blackstar Series 100.
Recently Danny played with Gary Moore’s son Jack Moore on the tribute to his father on this same guitar for the new song “Phoenix,” written by Danny and Jack theyself.
Born January 1980, Danny first realised he wanted to play the guitar after watching his father Colin Young rehearse regularly in the living room. On his childhood years he suffered several operations on his left elbow due to a fracture a few years earlier had left him without feeling in his left hand. For the rehabilitation he start to take guitar lessons from his father at age 14.
Danny was a top 20 sponsors choice finalist in the world’s largest guitar talent contest Guitar Idol 3 in 2011 which enabled Daniel to go onto work with the Arts Council England to showcase awareness for musicians with Aspergers. Recently, Daniel has been producing product demonstrations for Seymour Duncan pickups which include signature gear demos for artists such as Slash, Yngwie Malmsteen and most recently Jason Beckers Perpetual Burn signature pickup. Daniel has also had the pleasure of helping launch Seymour Duncans new line of professional quality foot pedals.
But now watch Danny playing his tribute to Gary Moore….and enjoy!
