Guitarist Gary Moore Dies

Spain’s Interior Ministry says police will await the outcome of an autopsy on late Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore before deciding if an investigation is needed.

Moore, a former member of the influential Irish band, died early Sunday at a hotel in the southern Spanish town of Estepona, where he was vacationing.

A ministry spokeswoman in nearby Malaga city said Monday there were no signs of foul play.

She spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with ministry regulations.

She says the autopsy will be carried out in Malaga but it was not known when the result would be released.

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1952, Moore joined Thin Lizzy in the 1970s and had hits with songs like “The Boys are Back in Town” and “Whiskey in the Jar.”
