A rare footage taken during a session in 2001 on VH1 network who saw Gary Moore perform 5 tracks from his album Back to the Blues, released on that same year, and at the end of show he perform his 1978’s hit Parisienne Walkways, written with his friend and former bandmate Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy) and released for his debut solo album Back On The Street with Lynott on vocals. That was a beautiful and intensive version, and you know Gary was extremley gifted, he never played half hearted, he always played in a free vibe of improvisation and his musical phrasing was always perfect.
Parisienne Walkways was one of Moore’s greatest hits and established him as one of the greatest composers of guitar ballads.
I don’t know where and when exactly it was filmed but I assure you it is really worth.
This is an amazing short video from YouTube user Davie504, where he’s playing “Money” by Pink Floyd using money as pick for the bass guitar and as backing track (except for the cymbals).
Davie504 is a bass player from Savona, Italy, who love do different challenges involving on his bass guitar. He’s extremely creative when it comes to playing the bass in alternative ways. His videos on YouTube channel typically get a large number of views.
I hope you enjoy!

The band come from Poland, it is called “Łukasz Gorczyca Band” and featuring Gary Moore’s son Jack Moore on lead guitar. Jack began playing the guitar at the age 15 under the influence of the legendary father. His father Gary, born in Belfast in 1952, picked up the guitar when he was 8, inspired by Elvis Presley and the Beatles, as well as by British blues guitarists Peter Green and Eric Clapton.
Here below you can hear and watch Jack Moore’s version of “Parisienne Walkways” from two differents show. The first was recorded at an unknown pub in Białystok, Poland, on February 12, 2017, and other video was recorded on the same month, two days before, on stage in the Radio Kraków’s studio, in Kraków, Poland. The original song was written by Gary and his long time friend and leader of the Irish rock band Thin Lizzy, the late Phil Lynott, and was released in 1978 by Gary for his first solo album “Back On The Streets” (1973’s Grinding Stone album being credited to “The Gary Moore Band”).
I show you these video just for a simple curiosity and because I know how much Gary fans love the young Jack. It’s hard to be the son of a legend, it’s also hard not to compare Jack with the great father, but and I’m not going to do it, and you know why!
