very sad, Gary moore, such a great guitarist. Just played "Still got the blues for you album, all the way thru...fanstastic! Playing with such greats as Albert King and Albert Collins. Gary had such a great blues voice.

He will live on for a long time at my abode.

Over here the news have linked Moore's death to a very heavy night of drinking, but in the end, it doesn't matter now, we all know the result.

RIP, Mr. Moore!

Might I just add that one can fret about how he died, too much to drink...whatever, its his private business and we must repect that. At 58 hes not old but hes not young either and you cannot do what you did when you were young at 58. (I am 59 so I should know!)
