Thin Lizzy Guitarist Gary Moore Dead At 58

LONDON

Bandmates say rock guitarist Gary Moore, a former member of influential Irish band Thin Lizzy, has died. He was 58.

Manager Adam Parsons told the BBC that Moore was found dead Sunday at a hotel on Spain’s Costa del Sol, where he was on holiday. The cause of death was not immediately known.

Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey said Moore’s death was a “total shock,” and guitarist Scott Gorham said he was “a great player and a great guy.”

Thin Lizzy had global hits in the 1970s with songs like “The Boys are Back in Town” and “Whiskey in the Jar.” Frontman Phil Lynott died in 1986, but with a different lineup the band continues to tour today.
