I don’t remember what came first “Green Onions” or “The Messiah Will Come Again” but I do know that I sure fell in love with Roy Buchanan’s music and guitar playing at that time. Having seen Roy many times before he passed I have heard The Messiah Will Come Again live a few times as well as the studio version but the version that Gary Moore does on the “Gary Moore & The Midnight Blues – Live at Montreux 1990 DVD” is amazing.
The first time I saw Gary Moore was during one of his short stints with Thin Lizzy. Gary’s mostly known for his blues hit Still Got the Blues but if you have never heard his version of Roy’s “Messiah” you need to check it out. Here are Roy’s studio version and a live version by Roy.
