According to BBC News, renowned rock guitarist Gary Moore has died in a hotel room in Spain. He was 58 years old.

Adam Parsons, who manages THIN LIZZY, told the BBC that Moore had died in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Moore was reportedly found dead in his luxury hotel room in the Costa del Sol. He was said to be on holiday at the time of his death.

A postmortem is due to be carried out later in nearby Malaga.

In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with artists including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey as early as his secondary school days, leading him to a membership twice with the Irish rock band THIN LIZZY.

Moore was brought into THIN LIZZY by Lynott to replace the departing Eric Bell, another guitarist from Northern Ireland.

Bell told the BBC on Sunday he was still “in shock” at Moore’s death.

“I still can’t believe it,” he said. “He was so robust, he wasn’t a rock casualty, he was a healthy guy. He was a superb player and a dedicated musician.”

Moore has shared the stage with such blues and rock luminaries as B.B. King, Albert King, COLOSSEUM II, Greg Lake and SKID ROW (not to be confused with the glam metal band of the same name), and has had a successful solo career.

Moore had a string of hits in the 1970s and 1980s, including “Parisienne Walkways” in 1979 and “Out In The Fields” in 1985.

** On a personal note, Gary was one of my biggest influences and favorite guitar players alive and this is a terrible loss at such a young age. The good ones always die young. RIP Gary and I Still Got the Blues For You…….
