R.I.P. Gary Moore

Yet another sad day for music…

Robert William Gary Moore (4 April 1952 – 6 February 2011), known simply as Gary Moore, was a musician best recognized as a blues rock guitarist and singer from Belfast, Northern Ireland.

In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with artists including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey as early as his secondary school days, leading him to membership with the Irish rock band Thin Lizzy on three separate occasions. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock luminaries as B.B. King, Albert King, Colosseum II, Greg Lake and Skid Row (not to be confused with the glam metal band of the same name), as well as having a successful solo career. He guested on a number of albums recorded by high profile musicians, including a cameo appearance playing the lead guitar solo on “She’s My Baby” from Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3.

  1. Whoa! i’ am really down… GM was on my “bucket list” for the UK this or next year. and he was younger than me. yikes! Did NOT like ThinLizzy – discovered him about 6 months ago and his music saved my life..i mean it. His Live at Montreux box set has the finest blues covers and originals out there in the past 20 years. I am so sorry I have to wait to get to heaven to hear him now.
