Read about this earlier on BBC news. Such a shame, all it said was he was found dead in his hotel room. The cause of death has not been announced from the net search i did on it. Such a shame. Monster player, awesome tone, now he will get to jam with Phil Lynott once more. RIP Gary!.

Yeah I've read this a few hours ago and still can't believe it, such a great loss, I wonder how this happened....he was the first guitar player I ever really listened to....I played the VHS of his concert at Isstadion like a thousand times...just
a sad sad day.

On slovenian news there was little more. It said that the cause of death was heart failure.

I did notice he has gained some weight the last few years, maybe that had something to do with it, still, very sad for a such good guy to go at 58..

Listening to Wild Frontier record right now... great stuff!!!
I also read somewhere that in interview in Guitar mag, Steve once named Gary as his favourite soloist...

Sad loss indeed. After passed long periode of time without listening Gary Moore, last week, don't know why, started to listen the "We Want More" and "Live In Japan" and bring back to me some memories.
Never got the chance to see him live, unfortunately in 1987 when I was serving the army he played here in my town but the concert was canceled...

Here's something that I have in a old VHS and found on YouTube. Gary mother and father gaving their testemony and a live perfomance of the extended version of "Shape Of Things" a great solo in a great song: :guitar

And... I still don't believe... But now he can play this song with Phil...

Indeed it's hard to believe, so unexpected. I remember getting the "We Want Moore" cassette many years ago, that was the first thing I heard from Gary. And Anibal, the solo on "Shapes of Things" is very close to be my favorite on that live album. Truly Exploding. May he rest in peace.

Yeah, great song and solo! I have that VHS also, I remember there's a lot of footage from Belfast Ireland which was a pretty rough place at that time and Gary coming back there to play a show...
I love the Live at Isstadium VHS even more, that is a fantastic concert, I used to watch that at least once a week as kid...too bad that has never been re-released on dvd, at least it's all on youtube...
This video is from that tape:

I saw Gary on that tour (Is Stadium) but in Gothenburg instead of Stockholm.
It rocked..........
I mean, "Thunder Rising" was just unbelievable!

When I first started to play guitar, I was all into the guitar players for the wrong reason.
You know, the guys that "looked cool".
Then a friend of mine insisted that I take a listen to the "Run For "Cover" album, and my eyes opened.
This guy didn't look cool, he didn't have cool hair, and not a cool guitar in sight (I really loved that BC Rich Warlock that all the metal guys played!).
But he sure knew how to play, and the songs totally rocked.
Changed my outlook on guitar.
The following year, my ears came across that guy Vai, and he changed my outlook on music in general....

All good things must pass.
Gary made some great music while he was with us ('Blood of Emeralds' was one of my favourites, being a fellow Irishman)
