Thin Lizzy's Gary Moore - short excerpt from Live in Sydney 1978

Sad news for guitar-loving hard rock fans everywhere. Northern Ireland's Gary Moore, who played guitar intermittently with Thin Lizzy as well as enjoying his own successful solo career, died yesterday at age 58. So far no confirmation of cause of death. Growing up in Ireland as fan of hard rock from a young age, I was fortunate to have seen Moore play with both the Dublin Ireland band Skid Row (with Brush Shiels) and later with Thin Lizzy -- with whom he was guitarist in three different stages during their career. Rest in peace, Gary Moore.
