In many ways, my love of Gary Moore's beautiful guitar playing - especially on Thin Lizzy's incomparable "Black Rose" album - gave me a career. If I never fell in love with that amazing work, I might not have ended up as a music book publisher. Some of the earliest independent writing I ever produced was about this man's work with Thin Lizzy. As I complete work on an upcoming book chapter devoted to "Black Rose," it shatters me to know I must now add this painful postscript.
My deepest condolences to Bob Daisley and other mutual friends who worked with Gary in creating the magic that went into a Gary Moore album and live performance.
Listen to Gary Moore's music today, and let it move you. A special man's momentum has ceased, a legend has left our world.
Rest in peace, Gary. And thank you.
