Musical Career

Iron Maiden

Tony Moore's background in the music industry has been eclectic and diverse. The first band he joined in 1977 was (the then unknown) Iron Maiden. A fan of Progressive Rock, Moore was working in the Hi-Fi department of Debenhams store in Bristol, and had just bought a small Korg synthesiser when he saw an advertisement in the Melody Maker for a keyboard player for a London band. This turned out to be Iron Maiden. He contacted Steve Harris, and even though their music was not the kind of thing Moore had played or really listened to before, he auditioned and was invited to join the band. He moved to London to begin rehearsals. At that time members of the band all had day jobs and rehearsed once or twice a week. As this was the height of the Pub Rock era, their first gig with the new line-up was at a pub called The Bridgehouse in Canning Town.

Canning Town is an area of East London, England. ...


In Moore's own words (quoted from the blog on his official Myspace site [1]) :

"The whole gig was a bit of a blur (as live performances often are). The adrenaline, the nerves, the concentration all played their part to produce a misty memory of the event. However, I think it is right to say, everyone felt there was something fundamentally not right in what was happening. For my part, I felt that the whole show felt a little pub rock and amateurish, I didn't think that my contribution was actually enhancing the band. In many ways it was an important bad gig. I think that, had the gig gone well, we may have struggled on with that lineup when, in hindsight, it was so obviously wrong. The following weeks produced a sense of unrest within the band and a feeling that things were unspoken and resentments and frustrations were being suppressed [sic] just below the surface. I remember the last rehearsal I had with the group, in a railway arch midway between Elephant and Castle and Blackfriars Bridge, where things seemed strained and un-natural. I think I realised at that point, that the band didn't really need a keyboard player. No matter how much I liked and respected Steve's dream, and passion and energy, I didn't seem to fit in."

Moore left soon afterwards, and joked later that he left because he believed Iron Maiden would never make it. He then began working with Brian James (from The Damned) releasing a single on RADAR records and touring in support to Black Sabbath and The Stranglers before moving on to join a progressive rock band called England. In the early 1980s he formed his own group called Radio Java and made an album at Abbey Road Studios that spawned a number one hit single in the Netherlands before disbanding after the label closed down.

Cutting Crew

In 1986 Moore was invited to play keyboards with a new band called Cutting Crew who went on to have a world wide hit with "(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight". For two more years he toured the world and recorded with the band, at which point he signed a solo deal with a small independent label in London. He released one single to critical acclaim (including airplay from Bob Harris) before joining forces with Argentine singer/songwriter Marie Claire D'ubaldo. He co-wrote and co-produced tracks for her debut album on Polydor records that sold over 250,000 worldwide. Cutting Crew was a pop/rock band formed in England in 1985. ...

Perfect & Beautiful

In 2005, after several years concentrating on club management, Moore resumed his solo musical career and began recording his own material independently. He announced his intention to produce an album, with almost no budget, no major record company backing and only 9 days to record, mix and master the final product. This resulted in a 13 track solo album entitled Perfect and Beautiful, recorded at Sphere Studios in London, released in July 2005.
