Re: RIP Gary Moore

I bought my first guitar in the early 90's, and I bought it because there were 2 songs I just HAD to learn how to play:
Metallica's Orion, and Gary Moore's The Loner.
Thank you for the inspiration, Gary! You will not be forgotten!

Re: Bugs, 'features' and little-known secrets

Re: Broken Sword 3 question

Thanks for the info guys! I'll give it a chance then...
Re-makes for the Wii? OK, I'll google that! Thanks!
