I said to Mike Ball at work the other day, “These things come in threes. I wonder who it’s gonna be next.” I then conjectured about the terrible possibility that someone we liked would no longer be with us, which was met with, “SHHHH! You’re gonna regret it!”
So I get home from playing all day at church to see that Gary Moore has passed on. While he’s best known for his work with Irish rock outfit Thin Lizzy, Moore was also a commanding solo artist marked not only his dynamic control of the guitar, but also his tone, which was at times mellow and soft and alternately searing and tremulous. He will be missed. Here’s a link to the story at Barefoot Music News.
Okay, so nobody else. Fun’s over. We’ve had enough news this week.
