I was saddened to hear that Gary Moore passed away yesterday at age 58. I found guitar inspiration from Gary both as a solo performer and as a member of Thin Lizzy. The Guardian has a detailed obituary.
Here are two great tunes from Thin Lizzy - "The Boys are Back in Town" and "Jailbreak"
and a solo cover of The Yardbirds' "Shapes of Things".
Rest in peace, Gary.
