With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“But here in my heart, there’s an empty space” February 6, 2011


It has just been reported that former Thin Lizzy guitarist and superbly talented solo artist Gary Moore has died. There is no news as to the cause of death, his manager confirmed that he was found dead in a Spanish hotel room this morning.He had been on holiday in Spain. His talent crossed many genres; rock, blues and metal. He first came to prominence in the Irish band Skid Row, who he joined aged just 16 in 1969.

He joined Thin Lizzy as  replacement for another Irish guitarist, Eric Bell, he had previously played in secondary school bands with Phil Lynott and another Lizzy guitarist Brian Downey. His partnership with Phil Lynott went beyond Thin Lizzy including hits such as “Parisienne Walkways” He has also played with many artists from BB King to the Travelling Wilburys. He provided a guitar solo on the Wilbury’s track “She’s My Baby”

Read the BBC report here. I am sure that his family, friends and fans around the world will miss him. RIP Gary Moore …… Rock On!
