Gary Moore

Sad to hear of Gary Moore's death yesterday, aged 58.

17 year old lead guitar player with Irish rockers Skid Row, then stardom with Thin Lizzy, and a stellar solo career. I wasn't a huge fan in as much as, surprisingly, I have little of his work, but I was always in awe of his guitar playing: the virtuosity which included the phenomenal control of volume and feedback. A true, international guitar great.
