John Sykes accepts award on behalf of Bob Daisley

John was invited to accept an award on behalf of his good friend Bob Daisley and his induction into the Hall of Heavy Metal History. Bob's contribution to the music world is legendary, working with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Gary Moore, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath and even more recently with John himself on a tribute to Gary Moore with 'Still Got The Blues'. The awards show was fronted by John's good friend and Rock radio personality Eddie Trunk.

Facebook Profile

Recently a Facebook user decided to make a profile page under the name of John Sykes and proceed to impersonate John. We can confirm that John DOES NOT have his own personal profile account on social media. The only social media pages linked to John Sykes are the Official Facebook page linked from this website and an associated Twitter page. Both of these pages are run by an admin on behalf of John as a news feed with the occasional message from John himself.

There are many great tribute pages on social media that do a great job at posting John's history and keeping the fans engaged on a daily basis, they do not impersonate John and always clear up any confusion. We encourage you to check these out.

Any recent news or important updates will always come from the official page first and any of John's associated record labels.

John Sykes, Danny Bowes, Bob Daisley & Don Airey cover Gary Moore's 'Still Got The Blues'

Moore Blues for Gary – A Tribute To Gary Moore’ is the brainchild of Bob Daisley, who had played bass with Gary since the early eighties. Bob says "When Gary passed away in 2011 the world lost one of the all-time greats. I don’t think that enough was said or done at the time to acknowledge the loss of such a great player so I took it upon myself to pay personal tribute to the man and record some new versions of his music. I asked many members of the Gary Moore family tree, and some other great players, to contribute to the project. The response was not only encouraging, but very moving."
