Mirror.co.uk has issued the following report from Greig Box-Turnbull, Daily Mirror:
Guitar hero GARY MOORE died of a suspected heart attack, a postmortem revealed yesterday. The former THIN LIZZY star, 58, was on holiday with his girlfriend and died in his sleep.
Forensic experts have ordered further tissue tests on his body ahead of a report, an inquiry heard.
Relatives including Gary’s brother, Cliff, are in the Costa del Sol, Spain, to make preparations to fly his body back home.
Moore, of Belfast, died at the five-star Kempinski Resort Hotel, in Estepona, at the weekend. Paramedics were called at 4 AM on Sunday after his girlfriend raised the alarm.
The pair had earlier eaten a burger and a sandwich, washed down with champagne and brandy.
A police spokesman said yesterday: “His death is not in any way suspicious. An inquiry has been opened to find the exact cause.”
GARY MOORE: 1952 – 2011
Eagle Rock Entertainment have been deeply saddened by the news of the death of Gary Moore, the consummate musician acknowledged as one of the finest guitarists that the British Isles has ever produced. In a career that dates back to the 1960s, there are few musical genres that he has not turned his adroit musical hand to, and on top of his acclaimed solo work he has graced the line-ups of several notable rock bands, Thin Lizzy, Colosseum II and Skid Row to name but three.
Eagle Rock Entertainment were privileged to work with Gary Moore and his team on many projects over the past few years – releasing his three most recent studio albums, a live box set album, three DVDs and a Blu-ray. It was a relationship that began in 2004 and was cherished by all those at the label.
Lindsay Brown of Eagle Rock Entertainment commented, “Gary Moore was truly a giant of contemporary guitarists. We feel honored to have worked with him, released his amazing music and indeed to have called him a friend. He will be sorely missed by all those who knew him, and all fans of original guitar music, and leaves a gap that simply cannot be filled.”
Mike Carden, President of Operations for Eagle Rock in North America, adds “It isn’t often you get the opportunity to work with a legend who is also a gentlemen. Gary Moore was such a legend and he will be sorely missed.”

According to The Sun, GARY MOORE – who died in Estepona, Spain yesterday (February 6th) at the age of 58 – choked on his vomit after knocking back champagne and brandy.
The 58-year-old ex-THIN LIZZY star was discovered just before 4am by his girlfriend, unconscious in their Spanish hotel room.
Medics found him lying lifeless on his back wearing just his underpants.
An ambulance source said: “We believe the deceased had been drinking heavily.”
A source at The Kempinski hotel on Spain’s Costa del Sol – where suites cost up to £3,500 a night – said: “There were definite signs of alcohol in the room.
“His girlfriend was very distraught, in floods of tears.”
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 membership with the Irish rock band Thin Lizzy on three separate occasions. Moore 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), as well as having a successful solo career.
Moore collaborated with a broad range of artists including GEORGE HARRISON, TRILOK GURTU, DR. STRANGELY STRANGE, COLOSSEUM II, ALBERT COLLINS, JIMMY NAIL, MO FOSTER, GINGER BAKER, JACK BRUCE, JIM CAPALDI, VICKI BROWN, COZY POWELL, THE BEACH BOYS, OZZY OSBOURNE and ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER on the composer’s Variations (album) in 1977. He experimented with many musical genres, including rock, jazz, blues, country, electric blues, hard rock and heavy metal, according to Wikipedia.
SWEDENROCK FESTIVAL 2010
MARKO SYRJÄLÄ, ARTO LEHTINEN, PATRICK CLEMENT
Jävlä Swedenrock, här kommer vi igen. The annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metalâ€‘Rules.Com team is already the tenth time in a row. The 2010 lineâ€‘up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Therefore, over 70 bands offered nothing but an utter blast and a helluv an experience for the attendees to enjoy metal and rock. Swedenrock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economomic situation worldwide. As mentioned in the first sentence, this is the tenth time in a row when Sweden Rock has been featured on Metalâ€‘Rules.com, so it is quite logical for us to give a real inâ€‘depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock. The weather wasn’t ideal compared to previous years. It either rained or was windy with a little sunshine. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party. We are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Enjoy or die !!!

After putting out three records as a trio, THIN LIZZY reinvented itself, to great success, as a four-piece featuring now the twin guitar leads of the American Scott Gorham and Scottish Brian Robertson. From that point on, Scott Gorham along with drummer Brian Downey, stuck with mastermind Phil Lynott until the band’s dissolution in 1983. Together they recorded nine classic studio albums (Nightlife in 1974, FIGHTING in 1975, JAILBREAK and JOHNNY THE FOX in 1976, BAD REPUTATION in 1977, BLACK ROSE in 1979, CHINATOWN in 1980, RENEGADE in 1981 and THUNDER AND LIGHTNING in 1983) and two live ones (LIVE AND DANGEROUS in 1978 and LIVE LIFE in 1983). Over the years, in addition to Robertson, Scott played alongside Gary Moore, Snowy White and finally John Sykes. Today, in tribute to their fallen comrade Phil Lynott, Gorham and Sykes continue to keep the THIN LIZZY name alive, touring all over world with legendary drummer Tommy Aldridge and bassist Francesco DiCosmo now completing the lineup. In between playing with THIN LIZZY Scott has, among other things, played with his own band 21 GUNS. Read on for Scott’s take on the different stages of his career!

Legendary drummer Eric Singer first rose to fame playing drums on Lita Ford’s DANCIN’ ON THE EDGE tour back in 1984. Subsequently he joined up with Tony Iommi and played on two classic Black Sabbath albums, SEVENTH STAR in 1986 and THE ETERNAL IDOL the following year. Thereupon he toured the world with Gary Moore before reuniting with his old Black Sabbath colleague Ray Gillen in Badlands. In quick succession he hooked up with Alice Cooper for some touring before stepping in to replace the ailing Eric Carr in KISS and proceeding to record the classic REVENGE album in 1992 and the follow up CARNIVAL OF SOULS in 1997 as well as the live albums ALIVE III in 1993 and MTV UNPLUGGED in 1996. More recently he has, in addition to touring with both KISS and Alice Cooper, appeared on Alice’s BRUTAL PLANET album in 2000 and THE EYES OF ALICE COOPER album in 2003. He has also toured and put out albums with ESP (Eric Singer Project) and worked with Tobias Sammet’s Avantasia, Gilby Clarke and that’s not all… read all about it in this forthright interview.
