G-Force is a 1980 album by the namesake UK-American band led by Irish guitarist, Gary Moore. Moore was on an American tour with Thin Lizzy and left the band mid-tour. He went to Los Angeles in an attempt to make a solo rock presence. With the opportunity to tour America in support of Van Halen, Moore recruited bassist Tony Newton (Motown session player and ex-Tony Williams Lifetime), vocalist Willie Dee (born Willy Daffern; ex-Captain Beyond/Pipedream) and percussionist Mark Nauseef (formerly with the Ian Gillan Band and Elf) and the band was formed as G-Force. The tour was a success, and the band supported Whitesnake on their 1980 Ready an' Willing trek. However, the band was short lived, only producing the one eponymous album and re-mixed by Dennis Mackay. The album consisted of more conventional hard rock radio oriented music than Moore's previous efforts. "Trust Your Lovin'" (Newton, Dee) is a non album track, only released on the 7" single "You". Soon after the album was released, G-Force disbanded and Moore joined with Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake & Palmer fame, on a new venture.
