Lots of tributes posted from guitarists great and small, here is a selection that I have gathered, no real order to the list, just as I found them.
RIP Gary Moore. You were a big influence on me. Your mix of passion, soul and technique was incredible! I played your intro solo to End of the World in High School. I will post it some day.

Bad day! : (, we went ... Gary Moore
On the death of the great Belfast, as well as sadness for the loss of a guitarist monumental anger is always thinking about all the shit you should die or be (meglio!) already dead for a while and do not never crack .. . World of shit ... We'll keep the blues for you Gary!
I can't believe Gary Moore has died at just 58. He has always been a huge inspiration to me with his wicked left hand vibrato and killer chops. It's a sad day for Blues Rock.
R.I.P. Gary Moore, Tonight we play discs with old Gary saw it reverberate. First up for me, Still Got the Blues, later classics such as Victims of the Future, Dirty Fingers, Corridors of Power, and many, many more.
We will miss you Gary Moore...
"He was too young to go,"
"It is with great sadness that I acknowledge Gary Moore in this way. His passing has come as a sad and terrible shock and I have difficulty believing that he's gone. I have many fond memories of our years together, both in the workplace of music and as friends. "I have love and respect for Gary as a musician and as a person; he was one of the greatest. "Farewell and rest in peace, Gary, my friend."
"I was very saddened to hear of the passing of one of the greatest guitarists of all time — Gary Moore. His 'Still Got The Blues' album was one of the great albums, certainly one of my favorites. His way of playing cannot be learned — it comes from the soul. R.I.P., Gary."
"Truly shocked and terribly saddened by the news. Our thoughts are with Gary Moore's family, friends and all of his fans. What a sad loss."
"Man, I can't believe it was 24 years ago I saw Gary Moore for the first time. "One word says it all today... shocked!! "Gary Moore left us far too soon. He just played an amazing hard rock set last year and many of us were pleased he might have been doing that again so we could see it once again. "Gary did things with a guitar that most guitar players can only dream about. His music in regards to THIN LIZZY or his later solo efforts with Phil [Lynott] and Glenn Hughes should be known as some of the best hard rock ever made. From 'Empty Rooms' to 'Over The Hills', it is with a huge loss that this legend is now gone. He might be gone now but his music will forever speak to us! "Crank it to 11, Moore! Phil and a few friends are waiting to jam!"
