Bassist Geezer Butler (BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL) has issued the following statement regarding the passing of legendary guitarist Gary Moore:
"I was very saddened to hear of the passing of one of the greatest guitarists of all time — Gary Moore. His 'Still Got The Blues' album was one of the great albums, certainly one of my favorites. His way of playing cannot be learned — it comes from the soul.
Gary Moore died early this morning in a hotel room in Spain. He was 58 years old.
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.
