Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore found dead in holiday hotel
Monday 07 February 2011
The rock guitarist Gary Moore, famed for his fretwork with the legendary Irish band Thin Lizzy, died yesterday while on holiday on the Costa del Sol.
Scott Gorham, another guitarist with Thin Lizzy, said it had been a pleasure to play with Moore, 58. "Playing with Gary during the Black Rose era was a great experience, he was a great player and a great guy," he said. While Moore's renown indisputably derives primarily from his various spells with Thin Lizzy, these were sporadic, short-lived and formed only one aspect of a long career. He also played in the bands Skid Row and Colosseum II, and released many blues-based solo albums.
