Gary Moore Died From A Heart Attack
Didn’t I tell you to take yesterday’s report about Gary Moore choking on his own vomit with a grain of salt?
According to the more reliable but still no bastion of journalistic integrity, The Daily Mirror, influential Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore died of a suspected heart attack — this, according to the findings of an autopsy conducted over the weekend.
Moore died in his sleep Sunday morning, hours after the rocker checked into the five-star Kempinski Hotel in Estepona on the Costa del Sol, Spain. He was accompanied by an unnamed female friend, and was 58 years old at the time of his death.
The Mirror further reports that while forensic experts are satisfied that Moore died from natural causes, they requested additional testing on tissue samples taken from his body ahead of a final report.
A Spanish police spokesman told the Mirror, “Mr. Moore died of natural causes and his death is not in any way suspicious. An investigating magistrate has opened a standard inquiry to determine the exact cause of death.”
