    I can literally name two "Moore" you should check out ...

    Try Gary Moore (from Thin Lizzy ... just about anything solo) and Ian Moore (try Muddy Jesus). You may also like Jon Butcher Axis (try If Wishes Were Horses). You might like Eric Johnson, especially appearences on Austin City Limits. You need to give the bluesier Rolling Stones tunes a chance as well. Early Fleetwood Mac with Peter Greene might entice you (try Oh Well). Try The Animals (House of the Rising Sun is required ... also We Got To Get Out of this Place, When I Was Young, etc). You probably already know about Blind Faith (with Clapton ... try Can't Find My Way Home). Also anything with Steve Windwood, such as Spencer Davis Group (try Gimmee Some Lovin, I'm A Man, etc).

    You'd also like early AC/DC (Night Prowler and Ride On) which were heavy blues rock inspired as well as Rush's first album (Before and After, Working Man, Finding My Way, etc). Early Aerosmith was very bluesy ... try their remake of Train Kept a Rollin' (Yardbirds). It rocks!

    Almost forgot Mountain and Leslie West! Mississippi Queen, Nantucket Sleigh Ride and Young Girls are classics.

    You might also like George Thoroughgood & the Destroyers (Bad to the Bone, Blue Highway, I Drink Alone, etc). Joe Walsh and/or James Gang (Walk Away, Life's Been Good to Me, Rocky Mountain Way, etc). And if you like Jimi and CCR, don't forget about Janis (Joplin), try Move it on Over, Cry Baby, Take a Little Piece of My Heart and her standards.

    I keep coming back to edit this as ideas pop in my head (sorry). You should definitely try out Carlos Santana (and "Santana"). Black Magic Woman is a must hear. Also, you might like early Journey and Neil Schon was a young guitar prodigy that left Santana for Journey. Even when Steve Perry joined the band, they kept a bluesy feel for a while (Lights, Walks Like a Woman, Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin', City of the Angels, etc).

    Well, you already listen to a load of great bands, I saw Black Spiders at Sonisphere and they're about the best hard rock band to come out in a while of course they do the blues rock thing, but give them a try.

    look up Guthrie Govan, Larry Carlton, and Robben Ford. great blues guitarists that bring in some fusion.
