Gary Moore dies at 58

Guitarist Gary Moore has died in a hotel room in Spain, where he was on holidays, early this Sunday morning at the age of 58. Gary Moore was the former guitarist of the band Thin Lizzy and of the Irish group Skid Row. The members of Thin Lizzy have issued the following statement :

"It is with great sadness we hear of the passing of Gary Moore. Our thoughts go out to Gary's family at this time and our memories of Gary and his contribution to THIN LIZZY and music in general will live on forever."

Added drummer Brian Downey : "I am in total shock. I have known Gary since 1967 when he was in PLATFORM THREE and he's been an amazing friend ever since. It was a pleasure to play with Gary again in 2006 after his days with LIZZY. He will always be in my thoughts and prayers and I just can't believe he is gone.", and guitarist Scott Gorham : "Playing with Gary during the 'Black Rose' era was a great experience, he was a great player and a great guy. I will miss him.".
