Late Music Icon Gary Moore's Guitars To Be Auctioned

(Classic Rock) A selection of guitars owned by the late Gary Moore will go up for auction in the coming months. The Belfast-born musician and former Thin Lizzy member died of a heart attack in 2011, leaving behind a selection of instruments, amps, cabinets and pedals. And his longtime guitar tech Graham Lilley plans to put some of the items under the hammer later this year.

He tells Guitar magazine (via the Belfast Telegraph): "A chunk of it will be retained by the estate for the time being. But there's a lot of stuff left and it's made to be played, to make a noise with, so somebody should make a noise with it.

"It's just trying to find the best way to do it. Some of it might find its way to auction websites, so anybody can bid on it, fans for example, and get a little piece of that heritage." Read more and see a promo video here.
