Gary Moore 1952-2011

Sad news that legendry blues guitarist Gary Moore died yesterday while on holiday in Spain. Moore played with some great bands, including Thin Lizzy and Colosseum II, and collaborated with a whole host of other top artists. He had a prolific solo career and was a genuine guitarist’s guitarist. Moore’s signature sound from his Gibson Les Paul was a screaming slow blues with a sustain that went on and on.Yet, he was as adept at light, fluid jazz as well as hard core rock. Another great Northern Ireland guitarist leaves the stage.

Here's some Colosseum II from 1978
