May the man R.I.P.

I have never been a huge fan of him, especially not Still Got The Blues and forward.. And the hard rock stuff just sounds dated to me these days..

Anyway, his first band was great, Skid Row:

This link was posted in another section on the forum. It suggests that his death was alcohol related, but it comes from The Sun newspaper which isn't exactly a reliable source. He may have had a heart attack or stroke. Anyway, it's still sad news...

If that's the case, that he choked on his own vomit, it's even more tragic..

Thanks for the link Magic.

Apparently, according to that article, Gary Moore died the same way Hendrix died all those years ago! I find that to be a bit of a creepy coincidence! :unsure:

Now, I read something which I didn't find suprising at all. It seems that fans of Gary Moore are questioning the credibility of "The Sun".

You can read about that here : http://www.examiner....ath-speculation

The truth is that Gary Moore died because of a heart attack. This is what the post-mortem examination has revealed. Also, forensic experts in Spain have revealed that Moore died of "natural causes".

I got all the info from an article in the "Belfast Telegraph".

Here's the link :

Eventhough, I am not a fan of Gary Moore, I can't help feeling angry that "The Sun" has gone all out to sensationalise his death by saying that it was alcohol related! Anyway, that's another reason not to trust a fuckin' rag! :angry:

Anyway, sad day for his fans! Poor chap! :(

He had 380mg of alcohol per decilitre of blood in his system, more than 30mg the amount associated with fatalities and just short of the 416mg Amy Winehouse had in her body when she died surrounded by three empty vodka bottles.
