Remembering Gary Moore

February 6, 2011, can now be noted as one of the saddest day for the guitar society as another legend has passed away on the day giving such a shocking grief towards the music fans. Gary Moore is the maestro that has now left the music world once and for all without giving more chance for us to ever see him performing anymore live shows after the Blues legend reportedly leave the big bad world during his Holiday in Spain.

The Official website of the Blues master release a note with a black background, describing the situation that looms among the people that have been supporting and working with the maestro. Surely, Gary's passing will be a great loss for many Blues music fans who have been enjoying lots of the guitarist' worked for many years now.

"It is with deep sorrow and regret, that we have to announce that Gary Moore passed away while on holiday in Spain last night.

Our thoughts are with his children, family and friends at this sad time.
Gary Moore, RIP
1952-2011" read a statement from Gary's official site.

Certainly more so for the virtuoso's die hard fans, who might even listened to his works since the guitar player's Thin Lizzy's days albeit it was a short stint. Going back further, surely Gary Moore's fans might have also checked out his past career at an Irish band called Skid Row (not to be confused with the popular hair metal group), where the maestro first burst up to the music scene at the tender age of 16.

Being honest, I'm not a big follower of Gary but just as many guitar players that got into the 80's music scene, Gary Moore's "Still Got The Blues" is pretty much the song that I listened, played and remembered till today. The track is one of those that stays in your head for a long period of time and it pretty much showed the legendary status of the artist that played the song, meaning that Gary Moore is surely someone that the music world should give lots of credit for.

As a token of my appreciation here's is the song that stayed in many people's head for years:
