    Always liked Thin Lizzy and I like a lot of Gary Moore's solo stuff too.

    Saw him live in Germany in the 80's, during a Monsters of Rock concert. He rocked.

    Oops, double post. I thought I looked but it appears George D. beat me to it.

    Bummer! Lost Rafferty and now Gary Moore. We all gotta go sometime, but at 58.

    RIP Gary Moore.

    From the offical website of Brian May (Queen)....

    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.

    Brian
