On October 25, 2007, guitarist Gary Moore took the stage at London's Hippodrome to tackle a host of classic tunes by Jimi Hendrix. Eagle Rock Entertainment will release that performance -- dubbed Blues for Jimi -- September 25 on CD, DVD and Blu-ray.
When it comes to rock and roll bloodlines, you'd be hard pressed to find an active artist with a more impressive pedigree than bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, who fronts British/American supergroup Black Country Communion. Hughes, who was born in 1951 in Staffordshire, England, came to prominence in the early '70s as a member of British funk-rock pioneers Trapeze. That led to a career-making spot in the Mk. III and IV lineups of Deep Purple in the mid-'70s, when he replaced Roger Glover and evolved into one of the band's main songwriters, co-penning "Holy Man," "You Keep On Moving" and "The Gypsy."
Earlier this year, the world lost a guitar legend in the late Gary Moore. In memory of the guitar great, Eagle Rock just released Live At Montreux 2010, a DVD that catalogs Gary's final show, and are now offering a free download of the video for "Oh Wild One" at Moore's official website, or from the widget below.
Gary Moore is busy storming the stages of Europe as we put this [September 1987] issue to bed, yet his technically experimental and rousingly adventurous new album, Wild Frontier (Virgin), is beginning to crash upon American airwaves like a gathering typhoon.
