I did say it wasn't a fair comparison. I just chose Gary Moore as one of countless examples of people who can play blues based music in a modern style. I'm not particularly a fan (I have only one Gary Moore album) but he does what he does well.

He sings about Louisiana when he's from Belfast - unforgivable! I for one would never sing a sea shanty, what with me being a clerical worker, and I certainly wouldn't dance the traditional dances of Oxfordshire when I live in Nottinghamshire. Whatever next: folkies in the early 21st century singing songs about the Napoleonic war?
