How Gary Moore came to own Peter Green’s iconic Les Paul, Greeny

by GuitarDomain

It’s not every day that you find yourself being offered a Les Paul for next to nothing, but that’s exactly what happened to Gary Moore at the dawn of the 1970s. “Peter was such a generous person,” Gary told Guitarist back in 1995. “If you admired something, he’d give it to you.

“He had this amazing coat you may have seen in photographs: full length wool coat with a very faint red check through it. I don’t think I ever said anything about it, but he said, ‘Do you like my long coat?’ It’s like he read my mind. He said, ‘I’m getting rid of all this stuff…’ and he gave me this beautiful coat.”
