The musician was found dead in the room of the luxury hotel Kempinski Resort Hotel in the resort town of Estepona, where he arrived for a week holiday.

Presumably Gary Moore died in the result of a heart attack. There are rumors that this could happen from excessive use of alcohol and cocaine overdose.
