The members of THIN LIZZY have released the following statement regarding the sudden death of the band's former guitarist Gary Moore:"It is with great sadness we hear of the passing of Gary Moore. Our thoughts go out to Gary's family at this time and our memories of Gary and his contribution to THIN LIZZY and music in general will live on forever." Commented THIN LIZZY drummer Brian Downey: "I am in total shock. I have known Gary since 1967 when he was in PLATFORM THREE and he's been an amazing friend ever since. It was a pleasure to play with Gary again in 2006 after his days with LIZZY. He will always be in my thoughts and prayers and I just can't believe he is gone." Added THIN LIZZY guitarist Scott Gorham: "Playing with Gary during the 'Black Rose' era was a great experience, he was a great player and a great guy. I will miss him."
