I loved Gary Moore - he was technically excellent. His guitar work always paid respect to the great blues players but he was also innovative!
Eric Bell was/is no slouch either. His work on his final Lizzy album, “Vagabonds of the Western World”, really shows what that band lost when they lost him. They had the big hits with Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson, but neither of those players seemed to embrace the slide playing that Bell was capable of (although Moore did).
