Rock/blues legend Gary Moore was found dead early sunday morning, in his hotel room in Costa Del Sol while on holiday in Spain. The cause of death is not known.

For more than 40 years, Gary Moore consistently enjoyed a distinuished career as a guitarist in bands and as a solo performer, even though his profile was not always high. Although his time with thin Lizzy was brief, he is probably best known as member of that band. Ironically, his most widely known song as a solo performer is “Pariesienne Walkways”, which features ex Thin Lizzy bandmates Phil Lynott and Brian Downey on vocals and drums respectively. Moore and Lynott co-wrote the song. Gary Moore’s playing on “Pariesienne Walkways” is simply one of the most beautiful and soulful performances ever recorded.
