Surely not … Gary Moore has died


Surely not …

This seems completely unreal. I’m shocked to hear tonight that Gary Moore has died.

What a wonderful player he was. It does not seem possible this is in the past. Well, his recordings will testify forever. But … live … he was a demon.

I know, because we toured with Thin Lizzy all around the States, many years ago. Gary was awesome every night … and the nicest guy you could imagine.

I have many memories – of visiting him in the studio, meeting him backstage, being staggered by his virtuosity in his solo gigs.

Well, lost for words. Bless ya Gary, wherever you’re bound. To Rock Heaven, I hope. 58? You were just a boy. Unbelievable. This is too sad.

RIP Gary Moore.
