Mikael Åkerfeldt, the frontman of Swedish progressive metal favourites Opeth, has commented on the passing of blues rock legend and former Thin Lizzy guitarist, Gary Moore, which was announced earlier today. His statement reads as follows:

"We are devastated to hear about the passing of Gary Moore. Both myself and Fredrik (Åkesson; guitar) are massive fans of his, and we've been listening to his music since we're kids. He was such a integral part of our musical upbringing, so it's with great sadness we have to try and accept these horrible news. One of the very best hard rock lead guitar players EVER! We love you Gary, rest in peace."
