    I wonder if the boys will be back in town for his funeral. If any are doing time I suggest a jailbreak. Just get together and pass around the whiskey in the jar.

    I always liked his work. What did he die from? The report doesn't say.

    I never knew until now that he was in the band Thin Lizzy, i only know of him as a Blues guitarist, and a great one.

    He was a great rock guitarist, one of my favorites. His solo album "Wild Frontier" is excellent, very Thin Lizzy like. I was disappointed when he went blues, there are too many blues guitarists already. I really want to know how he died.

    I think there are to many SRV wanna be's, they all have the same sound. Most of the great blues guitarists have died off.

    Lets just say GM was a great guitarist period. And i wouldn't be surprised if he died of a Heart Attack, and not one induced by drug consumption.
