Shocked to hear of this awful news. In the 80's, Gary Moore was God as far as I was concerned. Mainstream media never gave him his proper due, and I'm sure they'll continue that trend. He was more about the music than leaping into the spotlight, or hogging publicity. I just about fell off my chair when I saw the news on Thin Lizzy's page on Facebook; it actually took a few seconds to register that his date of birth to date of death was the heading. Totally out of the blue.

Very shocking news. I thought Gary was still going strong, releasing albums fairly regularly.

'Empty Rooms' is one of my all time favourite songs but I love quite a bit of his old music. 'Military Man', 'Over the Hills and Far Away' - all great songs.

RIP Gary.

More sad news... we have lost some great ones recently. Next to M.Schenker, Gary Moore is the guitarist I respected most.
