SUN UK: Gary Moore’s Death Involved Alcohol – So the SUN UK is reporting that there are indications Gary Moore might have died a la John Bonham & Bon Scott, i.e. choking on his own vomit. Horrible news – wasn’t bad enough that we lost one of the most under-rated guitarists in rock, but now he’ll be known for dying after an apparent drinking binge.

As a long time fan of his work, I’d like to focus on his music & not his premature death. Let the media vultures fight over the morbid details, only the worthy organizations will speak of his tremendous talent. Check out this live footage from 1984, performing a guitar solo I consider every bit as amazing & pivotal as Eddie Van Halen’s ‘Eruption’. The fact that he could so effortlessly reproduce the song live makes him the epitome of the Rock Guitar God. RIP Gary.
