Earlier today, Irish blues and rock guitarist and vocalist Gary Moore was found dead in his hotel room in Spain. His inspiring, emotional playing style made him into one of rock's guitar gods and his influence can be heard in all kinds of blues, rock and metal music. He was known for participating in several projects and bands such as Skid Row (the Irish band in the 70s) and Thin Lizzy, as well as for his own, highly successful solo career. Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell: "I still can't believe it, he was so robust, he wasn't a rock casualty, he was a healthy guy."
So far, no information about the actual reason for the death has been reported. We will keep you updated. In the meantime, here is Gary performing his biggest hit "Still Got The Blues":
