‘Whatever I did, at least I meant it . . .’ Gary Moore
White Knuckles chronicles the personal and professional journey of one of rock’s most influential musicians: Gary Moore. Born in Belfast and rising to conquer some of the world’s biggest stages, the guitarist-singer-songwriter enjoyed spells with the likes of rock giants Thin Lizzy before becoming a successful solo artist in his own right.
Moore’s solo career spanned three decades and millions of album sales until his untimely passing in 2011. Balancing biography with a critical analysis of Moore’s songs and guitar style, White Knuckles explores the evolution of Gary Moore’s music, from progressive rock and jazz fusion to metal and pure blues.
It also examines his friendships and artistic collaborations with the likes of George Harrison, Philip Lynott, Peter Green, Rory Gallagher, Cream’s Jack Bruce and many more. Based on interviews with Moore’s friends, colleagues and fellow musicians, this definitive work catalogues the life and oeuvre of a true legend.
