Gary Moore: Belfast free exhibition details

Gary Moore celebrated in Belfast Oh Yeah exhibition

The former Thin Lizzy guitarist died while on holiday in Spain in February 2011.

The exhibition at the Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast features some of his prized personal memorabilia, including his Gibson Les Paul guitar, gold albums and a tailored barbed-wire suit commissioned for an Amnesty International concert.

Stuart Bailie of the centre said it was a fitting time to reassess his musical legacy.

Local music figure Terri Hooley said: "Gary Moore is one of the greatest guitarists, and was certainly the best guitar player to come out of east Belfast."

Born in the same part of Belfast as his contemporary Van Morrison, Moore was inspired to play guitar by seeing Jimi Hendrix in his hometown in the mid-1960s.

The exhibition runs until 30 June and admission is free. full details
