Vocalist Nicky Moore has passed away at 75 years old. Moore fronted several bands over the years including Uli Jon Roth, Hackensack, Tiger, and Mammoth, though he was best known for replacng Bruce Dickinson in Samson after Dickinson left to join Iron Maiden. Moore fronted Samson between 1981 and 1984, and then again between 2000 and 2002 up until Samson founder Paul Samson's death.

"It is with immense sadness and almost unbearably heavy hearts that we have to let you all know that Nicky – a man larger than life in body and spirit – has sadly passed away this morning," reads a post on Moore's Facebook page. "A man that lived a thousand lifetimes in just one has decided he needed a rest. Rest well, dear friend. We will all miss you x"

Thanks for the music Nicky, and rest easy.
