Eagle Rock Entertainment saddened by the loss of Gary Moore

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 honoured 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.

Gary Moore 1952 ? 2011.
