Scars is a 2002 album by the Gary Moore-led blues rock group called Scars (not to be confused with the seminal Edinburgh post-punk group called Scars).

In 2002 Gary Moore decided to form a band with ex-Skunk Anansie bassist Cass Lewis and Primal Scream drummer Darrin Mooney called Scars. Their studio album "Scars", released on September 2nd on Sanctuary Records, includes compositions reminiscent of the sound of artists like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, in a modern way. (

Firmly blues based... but make no mistake, this is maximum hard rock of the first order. Gary has strapped the Strat back on and has formed a true power trio that owes more to Hendrix, Trower and Stevie Ray than any of the "Kings" (BB, Albert and Freddie). Fans of "Still Got The Blues" hoping for something more in that vein are going to have to wait a bit longer. This disc is raw, blistering, earthy, albeit bluesy rock and roll as only Gary can do it. On "Back To The Blues" you could kind of get an inkling as to where some of this was coming from, but Gary is such an incredible virtuoso that you never really know what direction he's going to head in. This disc takes the seeds of Hendrix's genius to its full fruition by one of the only people on the planet talented enough to pick up on wholly original musical ideas and run with them. My hat is also off to the awesome rhythm section of Cass and Darrin who inject a nice burst of energy to compliment all the guitar pyrotechnics.
