Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy guitarist, found dead in hotel room in Spain

Around the Next DreamGary Moore, Thin Lizzy guitarist, found dead in hotel room in Spain: "Rock legend Gary Moore was found dead Sunday in a hotel room in Spain, where he had been vacationing. The Thin Lizzy guitarist was 58.

The rocker was found laying unconscious in the lavish Kempinski hotel on Spain's Costa del Sol by his girlfriend and later pronounced dead, according to several reports.

Considered one of the greatest blues-based rock guitarists of the '70s, an era that also boasted the likes of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton, Moore joined Thin Lizzy in the mid-1970s and later enjoyed a successful solo career.

'I still can't believe it,' ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell told the Belfast News. 'He was so robust, he wasn't a rock casualty; he was a healthy guy. He was a superb player and a dedicated musician.'

Though an official cause of death had not been released, London's The Sun reported that Moore was a casualty of a rock 'n' roll lifestyle, having choked on his vomit after a drinking binge."
