Rocksmith Remastered DLC 8/13/2019 – Gary Moore

Hello Rocksmith fans!

This week’s DLC is a THREE song pack from @gmooreofficial! Over the weekend we learned that the pack will include both The Loner (Wild Frontier – 1987)and the title track off Still Got The Blues (1990). Today we can confirm (via Xbox NZ) the obvious inclusion of Gary Moore’s Over The Hills and Far Away (Wild Frontier).

It’s definitely a good start for fans of the legendary Irish guitarist!

During his teenage years in the 1960’s, Moore played in the line up of a number of local Belfast based bands, before a move to DublinIreland, after being asked to join the Irish band Skid Row, whose soon to depart lead singer, was one Phil Lynott. Later on, Moore could be seen playing in the likes of Thin Lizzy and British jazz-rock fusion band Colosseum II, as well as having his own, highly successful solo career split between the genres of heavy metal and blues. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock musicians as B.B. KingAlbert KingJohn MayallJack BruceGinger BakerAlbert CollinsGeorge Harrison, and Greg Lake.

Wikipedia

One of rock’s most underrated guitarists (both from a technical and compositional point of view), Gary Moore remained relatively unknown in the U.S., while his solo work brought him substantial acclaim and commercial success in most other parts of the world — especially in Europe. Born on April 4, 1952, in Belfast, Ireland, Moore became interested in guitar during the ’60s, upon discovering such blues-rock masters as Eric ClaptonJimi Hendrix, and perhaps his biggest influence of all, Fleetwood Mac‘s Peter Green. After relocating to Dublin later in the decade, Moore joined a local rock group called Skid Row, which featured a young singer by the name of Phil Lynott, who would soon after leave the group to double up on bass and form Thin LizzySkid Row persevered, however, eventually opening a show for Moore‘s heroes, Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac, and making such an impression on the veteran group that Green personally requested their manager help secure Skid Row a recording contract with CBS (in addition, Green sold Moore one of his most-used guitars, a maple 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard, which would become Moore‘s primary instrument).

Gary Moore – $7.99 / Steam

Bassists gotta tune at least once this week!

UPDATE: 

Still Got The Blues is indeed the SINGLE version, so be warned before purchase if this is going to disappoint you.

 


There you have it, THREE tracks from @gmooreofficial that barely scratches the surface of the legendary guitarist. Are you happy with this first pack, or are you already hitting the request app with your Parisienne Walkways requests? Let us know!

Rather have had Parisienne Walkways over Loner, but you can’t have everything. Maybe we’ll see a single soon.

“in addition, Green sold Moore one of his most-used guitars, a maple 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard, which would become Moore‘s primary instrument”

which has since been bought by some dude name Kirk Hammet, for a rumoured sum of an even USD$1 million.

Here’s a more accurate description of Gary Moore’s career than the wikipedia and Allmusic description

Famous for: Astonishing guitar work in just about every electric genre. Owning Peter Green’s 1959 Bluesbreaker Les Paul. Being the player’s player, while remaining unknown to the masses. Unfortunately for us rockers, Gary’s most famous for being a blues player. Many of his current fans are completely unaware that he was a true rock/metal GOD before he ditched rock music and the fans who supported his early career.

Infamous For: Joining Thin Lizzy. Leaving Thin Lizzy. Being difficult to work with. A serious case of Guitar Face. Being a superstar in Europe and Japan and totally unknown in the U.S. Joining Thin Lizzy. Leaving Thin Lizzy. Alienating his rock fans with his blues career. Alienating his blues fans with a sub-par attempt at recapturing his rock days. Joining Thin Lizzy. Leaving Thin Lizzy. Losing his will to rock. Having to sell Peter Green’s 1959 Bluesbreaker Les Paul. Joining Thin Lizzy. Leaving Thin Lizzy

“remained relatively unknown in the U.S.”, that makes more sense.

Yea I’d be happy with any of those, but I’m really happy that we finally got some Gary Moore.

It’s either off the wall stuff that not one person asked for, WWE. Or, it’s stuff that you had to be born in the 50’s to have a clue who it is.

I think this is a good pack because it’s niche, but the niche is people who like guitar. That said I don’t much like it myself, Over the HIlls sounds a lot like Thin Lizzy, which we have a lot of, I’d still prefer any of the songs off of Black Rose. The other two have not aged well, they have a very adult-contemporary feel to them. If they’re going to do 80s blues, well it seems like if we were ever going to get Stevie Ray Vaughan or Robert Cray it would have happened years ago, so there’s definitely an audience for this. I’d prefer more Freddie King but I don’t think we’ll get that either.

It’s been a long time since I’ve bought anything but there have plenty of things that make sense to me and I hope this one does well for them.

There was a Stevie Ray Vaughn Pack. Quite a few songs if I remember rightly

You’re not wrong. Would much rather have some of the tracks from his blues albums.

I even bought it, I’m a dummy. I don’t know what I was thinking.
