Concerns have been expressed about the "sorry state"
of Gary Moore
's grave, just 17 months after his death.
Fans living close to his final resting place in Saltdean, East Sussex, have raised concerns about the upkeep of the burial plot.
The only indication of the grave's famous occupant is a small brown cross stating "GARY MOORE 19522011" and a few mementos left by fans.
A spokesman for Moore's family blamed adverse weather conditions for the delay in erecting a headstone.
"A headstone is currently being made, as arranged by Gary's family,"
said the spokesman in a statement. "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."
The former Thin Lizzy guitarist died in February 2011 from a heart attack following a night of heavy drinking while on vacation in Spain.
