Gary Moore 1952-2011

'It was great being around him [George Harrison] and playing all those Beatle guitars that were all hanging up on the wall in his home studio, like being a child in a toy shop. He was a great guy, and I had some great times with him. I also had some embarrassing moments, like the time he played me the opening chord to "A Hard Day's Night". It wasn't the way I had played it all those years. I said, "Is that right?" [Laughing] "Are you sure that's right, George?" He looked at me and went, "Yes, Gary. It's right." [Both Laughing]' Gary Moore - All Out Guitar July 17, 2007
