His passing was announced on Wednesday (August 3) through a statement made on the musician’s official Facebook page.

At the time of writing, no official cause of death has been verified by those linked to Moore. According to Louderhowever, the artist suffered from Parkinson’s Disease, and spent the last years of his life in a nursing home.

Moore’s career began in the late ’60s, when he formed the bluesy hard-rock outfit Hackensack. He went on to sing for Tiger in the mid-1970s, before being recruited into Samson – filling the gap left by Bruce Dickinsonwho’d left to front Iron Maiden – in 1981. His first stint with the band lasted three years, during which time they released two albums: 1982’s ‘Before The Storm’ and 1984’s ‘Don’t Get Mad, Get Even’.

Moore left Samson shortly after the release of the latter album, but re-joined for a brief time in 1986, when he sang on that year’s ‘Joint Forces’ record. He’d link up with the band one final time in 2000, performing with them until the band broke up for good in 2002 (after the death of longstanding guitarist, and the band’s namesake, Paul Samson).

After leaving Samson the first time, Moore went on to front hard-rock outfit Mammoth, recording two albums with them – 1989’s self-titled affair and 1997’s belated ‘XXXL’ – before moving on to the bands Mister Big Stuff and From Behind.

In the mid-’90s, he formed Nicky Moore And The Blues Corporation, with whom he released a total of seven albums (the most recent being 2006’s ‘Hog On A Log’). In 2000, that band was voted the ‘Top Live Blues Band’ in a listener poll held by BBC Radio 2.
