Default 'Gary Moore: Blues for Jimi' - High-Def Digest Review

Bryan has reviewed 'Gary Moore: Blues for Jimi.' Video is disappointing, but sound and the show are amazing. Recommended.

Not only does Moore play all of Jimi's songs perfectly, to the point that if you close your eyes and just listen to him play, you most likely couldn't tell the two apart on their guitar skills. Moore also adds his own style to the songs and creates an epic mix of both styles, as to not completely just regurgitate a carbon copy of something we have already heard.
How can Moore:
"Not only does Moore play all of Jimi's songs perfectly, to the point that if you close your eyes and just listen to him play, you most likely couldn't tell the two apart on their guitar skills"
&
"Moore also adds his own style to the songs and creates an epic mix of both styles, as to not completely just regurgitate a carbon copy of something we have already heard."
not possible!

Moore may be able too play Jimi "compliantly" in "his" own style, however it's impossible too play Hendrix "perfectly" & not perfectly "copy" Jimi.

I saw/heard Moore at a Royal Albert Hall concert on cable, he's technically proficient; butt in no way is Moore's sound a perfect match w/Hendrix's.

People should watch/listen too a YouTube video or something of Moore B4 purchasing this thinking their getting perfect Hendrix.

I could not disagree more. Gary Moore is/was one of the finest and most underrated guitarists of the past 30 years and it is unfortunate that you cannot admit that his guitar playing, overall, but specially on this show, was, at least, as good as Hendrix's. "Blues for Jimi" is a hell of a concert. The only way to play tribute to Hendrix is to play something worthy of the man himself, and Gary Moore, well, he was clearly on fire throughout the whole show. Amazing guitar playing, amazing show.

Billy Cox was not an original member of the Experience. The original members were Mitch Mitchell (drums), Noel Redding (bass), and Hendrix. Billy Cox was an army buddy, and they did play together long before Hendrix was famous. Cox did join the Experience late in their career.
