According to Thin Lizzy’s Facebook Page:
It is with great sadness we hear of the passing of Gary Moore. Our thoughts go out to Gary’s family at this time and our memories of Gary and his contribution to Thin Lizzy and music in general will live on forever.
Brian Downey: ‘I am in total shock. I have known Gary since 1967 when he was in Platform Three and he’s been an amazing friend ever since. It was a pleasure to play with Gary again in 2006 after his days with Lizzy. He will always be in my thoughts and prayers and i just can’t believe he is gone’
Scott Gorham: ‘Playing with Gary during the Black Rose era was a great experience, he was a great player and a great guy. I will miss him.’
I’m extremely saddened by this news. Gary Moore was one of the greatest living guitarists on the face of the earth.
