Airey in tribute to Gary Moore

Will Wallner & Vivien Vain “The Battle Of Clyst Heath” cover art

Don ‘played with everybody and his dog’ Airey teamed up with his Gary Moore’s band mate Neil Murray, along with Vinny Appice, contributing to a cover of Gary’s track The Loner. The track will appear on Will Wallner and Vivien Vain new album The Battle Of Clyst Heath. Press blurb also mentions that the album “draws heavily from British hard rock influences such as Rainbow, Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple”.

You can preview another track from the album, The Wars Of The Roses, and judge said influences for yourself:

The Battle Of Clyst Heath is due out tomorrow, November 11, via Wormhole Death Records.

    Perhaps it is their own tribute, since it’s “Carry On Jon’ by Blackmore’s Night. 🙂

    Shouldn’t that be, contributing to a cover of the track that Gary Moore covered, “The Loner’ or, contributing to the instrumental ‘The Loner’, a track once covered by Gary Moore? How many times???? Cheers.

    This guy’s super enthusiastic description to experiencing the Late Great Gary Moore is exactly how I feel about the guy. What a loss and way too soon. He had lots more to offer and was getting ready to do another Hard Rock album at the time of his demise.

    Hey,

    I couldn’t have said it better. Plus, I remember the Gary Moore TV Show too. You must be around my age. You mentioned Lakeland, Florida. Been through there many times as I grew up in Miami and traveled to our family vacation cabin in North Florida a couple of times a year. I presume you are from around there too?

    There will never be anyone who could play The Loner like Gary, but this version actually comes close. Will Wallner is excellent.
