Gary Moore has only been gone a year and a half, but some fans paint a sad picture of the late guitar hero’s grave. According to a report in the Belfast Telegraph:
When I went to look for Gary Moore’s grave at the parish church, it took me ages to find. Just as I was giving up I found it tucked away against a back wall with no obvious markings. The grave was not delineated or looked after — there were lots of fallen leaves not swept up.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Moore family cites inclement weather as the reason for the plot’s state:
A headstone is currently being made, as arranged by Gary’s family. It does take some time for the ground, following a burial, to settle and to be able to support a headstone or memorial piece. But with the continuing wet weather, this has added to the time that the ground is taking to settle.
