Gary  Moore, guitarist of the legendary Irish group Thin Lizzy was found dead in a hotel room in Spain early on Sunday.

He was drafted into Thin Lizzy by the band's late frontman Phil Lynott to replace the departing Eric Bell.

Lynott died in 1986 but a new line-up of Thin Lizzy continues to tour.

Bell told the BBC on Sunday he was still "in shock" at Moore's death in the Costa del Sol.

"I still can't believe it," he said.

"He was so robust, he wasn't a rock casualty, he was a healthy guy.
