Gary Moore was best recognized as a blues rock guitarist and singer from Belfast, Northern Ireland.
In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with artists including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey during his teens, 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 and Greg Lake , as well as having a successful solo career. Moore died of a suspected heart attack while on holiday in Estepona, Spain, in February 2011.
Moore started performing at a young age. He got his first quality guitar at the age of 14, learning to play the right-handed instrument in the standard way despite being left-handed. He moved to Dublin in 1968 at the age of 16. His early musical influences were artists such as Albert King, Elvis Presley, The Shadows and The Beatles. Later, having seen Jimi Hendrix and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers in his hometown of Belfast, his own style was developing into a blues-rock sound that would be the dominant form of his career in music. Moore experimented with many musical genres, including rock, jazz, blues, country, electric blues, hard rock and heavy metal.
