• Gary Moore Dies at 58

      BBC news has confirmed the death of legendary rock and blues guitarist Gary Moore. Adam Parsons, manager of Thin Lizzy, told BBC that Mr Moore had died early Sunday morning.

      Mr Moore was originally drafted into Thin Lizzy by its singer Phil Lynott. He later gained acclaim for his solo work and was a former member of the Irish group Skid Row.

      The Northern Ireland guitarist was only 16 when he moved from Belfast to Dublin in 1969, to join Skid Row, which featured Lynott as lead vocalist.

      He was later brought into Thin Lizzy by Lynott to replace the departing Eric Bell, another guitarist from Northern Ireland.
