Slightly off-topic but of interest I'm sure. This from BBC web site:

Rock guitarist Gary Moore dies
Gary Moore was a guitarist with Thin Lizzy and was also acclaimed for his solo work The renowned rock guitarist Gary Moore has died, the BBC has learned.

Mr Moore, 58, was, originally from Belfast, and was a former member of the legendary Irish group Thin Lizzy.

Adam Parsons, who manages Thin Lizzy, told the BBC that Mr Moore had died in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Mr Moore was originally drafted into Thin Lizzy by its singer Phil Lynott. He later gained acclaim for his solo work and was a former member of the Irish group Skid Row.

What terrible news, I last saw Gary at the London Hippodrome in 2007 at the launch of the Monterey dvd where he played a superb hour long set of nothing but Jimi covers, accompanied by Mitch and Billy Cox among others. He always said Jimi was one of his major influences and recorded "Fire" on an album. To die at only 58 is tragic.

Tragic at such an age.
I saw Gary early in his career, with Lizzy. No Hendrix covers but the influence was clear that our man had had upon him.
RIP Gary
