Sad news arrives tonight with the death of Gary Moore, one of the great rock/blues guitarists of his generation. He was 58. Moore was one of the first gigs I went to see as a slightly greasy, head banging teenager (hard to imagine, I know). Sometime in the show - I'd like to think it was near the end - he climbed the theatrical scaffolding at the back of the stage, stood in front of a bright spotlight and his guitar practically sang us the following track.
To the mercy of God, then, Gary.
