Three years in the making, I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow is the official Gary Moore biography written by acclaimed music writer Harry Shapiro, who was given exclusive access to Gary’s family, friends and musicians. Spanning Gary’s five decades as a professional musician, the story begins with his early, troubled life in Belfast which he dealt with by honing his extraordinary Three years in the making, I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow is the official Gary Moore biography written by acclaimed music writer Harry Shapiro, who was given exclusive access to Gary’s family, friends and musicians. Spanning Gary’s five decades as a professional musician, the story begins with his early, troubled life in Belfast which he dealt with by honing his extraordinary talent in private, becoming recognised as one of the city’s best guitarists even while still at school. Leaving home at 16, the guitar prodigy began a tumultuous career first in Skid Row then, aged only 19, an abortive attempt at running his own band and then on through the Seventies switching with consummate ease between the hard rock of Thin Lizzy and the complex jazz rock of Jon Hiseman’s Colosseum II.· But even as a kid, Gary was telling his friends that he always wanted to be the frontman, never a guitar for hire. His solo career finally took off in 1979 with the chart single “Parisienne Walkways”. Throughout the 1980s, Gary moved up the rock hierarchy, but turned his back on what he regarded as the empty flash of metal and reverted to his heart music – the blues – where ironically he scored his biggest commercial success with the 1990 album, Still Got The Blues, selling over 3 million copies worldwide. As well as running his own bands, Gary mixed with the best that rock and blues could offer, playing live and on record with George Harrison, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Greg Lake, Cozy Powell, B.B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins and many others. Gary was the guitarist many looked up to not just for the terrifying speed of his fretwork, but for the passion, fire and honesty in his playing. Yet Gary never found life easy. He had demons to battle, could be his own worst enemy and made quite a few extra ones on the way. But when he suddenly died in 2011, the outpourings of admiration and grief from fellow musicians and fans around the world was heartfelt. As Harry Shapiro says “I would never have written a simpering hagiography. Hopefully this account will come across as honest as the man himself”.

    I really enjoyed this book, lots of good info regarding the players involved and songwriting for every one of Gary Moore albums. The only disappointing thing for me was that the author skipped over the story about the infamous Peter Green Les Paul. Die hard fans know the story about how Gary obtained the guitar but it still would have been nice if it was included in this book. I can certainly relate to the perfectionist Gary was and how the smallest thing can send a performance off the rails and I really enjoyed this book, lots of good info regarding the players involved and songwriting for every one of Gary Moore albums.

I can certainly relate to the perfectionist Gary was and how the smallest thing can send a performance off the rails and also like me there are many factors that affected his confidence throughout his life, i totally get that. And the biggest thing is he truly was a victim of his own success and he could have been just as big or bigger as say Page, Hendrix, Clapton, etc had he not turned down so many huge gig/tour/recording offers, but I understand that sometimes saying yes to things like that means you give up some control and lose the ability to do what you want when you want which was very important to him

    Excellent insight into one of the finest guitarists the world has ever heard and the complex man behind the guitar. The only drawback for me was the many typos and spelling mistakes littered throughout the book. Definitely would've benefitted from a proofreader Excellent insight into one of the finest guitarists the world has ever heard and the complex man behind the guitar.

    Excellent insight into one of my favourite guitarists, just a shame nobody proof-read it before it went to the publishers as it's full of spelling mistakes, typos, missing words etc. Excellent insight into one of my favourite guitarists, just a shame nobody proof-read it before it went to the publishers as it's full of spelling mistakes, typos, missing words etc.
