Vinnie, first of all, thank you for this interview to be brief because you are about to leave almost immediately and congratulations on the concert you have just to offer here in Madrid.
Vinnie Moore Interview from 11th May edition of the San Paulo Newspaper:

Currently formed, and Moore, Phil Mogg (vocals), Paul Raymond (guitar, keyboards), and Andy Parker (drums), the UFO has over 40 years of career and should play classics like "Doctor, Doctor", range customarily presented before the Iron Maiden concerts worldwide.
Interview with Vinnie Moore:
Leaf - The UFO comes to Brazil to promote his latest work, "Seven Deadly", 2012. For you, what is the main difference between the new album and the others already recorded by the group?
The UFO has over 40 years of road and many "hits". For you, how important band in the history of rock and metal?
Before you, the UFO had already influential guitarists as Michael Schenker, Paul Chapman and many other great musicians. How do you see its predecessors?
And how is your relationship with guitarist Michael Schenker?
The UFO was born the same time as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple, but did not become commercially equal to great bands mentioned. Why?
You did solo tours in various places in the world with local bands and musicians. How do you select these musicians?
In Brazil, in addition to shows with UFO you will do a small solo tour with Brazilian musicians. How is playing with musicians from Brazil?
What is the main difference between musicians from Latin America, Europe and the United States?
Do you believe that in the years 1980 and 1990 instrumental music was more expressive than today?
Vinnie Moore Video Interview in Bordeaux, France + Live performaces of Wonderland & Shoot Shoot
Interview by Juliana Rosano - ENGLISH Translation
Vinnie Moore belongs to the same school of the great guitarists of the 80's and was one of the pioneers of the style shredding. He became known to the general public due to a Pepsi commercial, which led him to release his first album, Mind's Eye in 1986 and work with Alice Cooper Hey Stoopid disk. Vinnie was also one of the first guitarists to devote himself to teaching this instrument, with its video-classes of 1987 and 1989, classics of the genre. Currently, Vinnie is divided between his solo career and his work with the English band UFO. After the UFO show in Madrid last March 8th, we had the opportunity to chat briefly, but humorous, in exclusive for Hard and Heavy.
HARD AND HEAVY: Thank you, Vinnie, a pleasure talking to you and to the readers of Hard and Heavy Brazil.
VINNIE MOORE: Brazil? São Paulo?
HH: Yes! São Paulo, extamente!
VINNIE MOORE: Oh, thank you, I know more things in Portuguese, but I will not say here. (Risas)
HH: The tour started a little while ago, Feb. 21, what has been the reception from the public?
VINNIE MOORE: So far, all the shows have been in England, except for tonight here in Madrid and in France yesterday. And it has been very good, we always do very well in England, and these shows were awesome for us in Europe and so far has also been good.
HH: What are your expectations for the rest of the tour?
VINNIE MOORE: Which is better and that we continue to have fun and see lots of fans, all fans possible.
HH: You came to Brazil for the first time only five years ago to give some clinics. What memories do you have from a trip to Brazil?
VINNIE MOORE: I remember the "steakhouse", is that what they say? The Brazilian barbecue, beautiful girls and the fans, of course, very enthusiastic fans.
HH: Is there a Brazilian musician you like, guitarist or not?
VINNIE MOORE: You know, when I was there, I had been giving clinics and other guitarists opening for me and there are so many great guitarists in Brazil, unbelievable. There was this guy who opened one of my clinics, I am sorry, but I do not remember his name, but it was impressive. But overall there are excellent guitarists in Brazil.
HH: Are you in the UFO 10 years ago. Have you ever thought you'd stay so long in the group?
VINNIE MOORE: You know, I never thought about it when I joined the group. I think if you had asked me this before, maybe I would last 10 years, I probably would have said that you might not. But, we are continuously making new albums and touring and more touring and other records and more and it's been great. I really like all the guys in the band and the music we're doing and of course, play live.
HH: How do you balance your work with your UFO and solo career?
VINNIE MOORE: Uhh, no time for both. I just choose the right moment. When I'm making a break with UFO, I work on my own music. I have some new songs I'm recording, all batteries are already finished, I'm just working on guitars and hope to launch it in a few months.
HH: That was exactly what I was going to ask you now.... READ FULL INTERVIEW

Spanish Interview on Guitar Experience Radio Show
Interview: Vinnie Moore
Translated from Spanish:
Today we bring you the transcript of the interview with Vinnie Moore case you want to savor slowly. If you become a full fast track in the program Monday podcast you can hear it in full. Let's say that each version has its advantages. Due to problems in the recording of it (as explained in the podcast), the version issued in the program allowed us to give our opinion on each response. But the transcribed version allows you to add photos and videos to illustrate what we're talking about, and in short, do it in a more interactive way.
The interview was conducted in the clubhouse of the Ritmo y Compas room. Camerino that had all the necessary seedy glamor-rocker: walls without any decoration, sofas and rattan chairs with upholstery (see attached photos), a table stocked all kinds of snacks, full of soft drinks and beer fridge and a nonexistent sound insulation, which allowed better hearing Wires Hard as did their soundcheck that we had interviewed a meter away.
Just introduce what we told our program going and that the theme "Shadows of yesterday" is the start line for fifteen years. It surprised both the fact of the longevity of the program and the fact of using one of his songs as the theme, which began humming its melody. Vinnie was friendly and attentive at all times and are confident that if not for his tour manager, we would have been longer than twenty minutes agreed (although in the end we were five).
With all of you, Vinnie Moore, a legend of the metal guitar.
ALBERT SANZ (hereinafter "AS"): We are not blessed with a historic metalera usually guitar. Can we talk about your last job or guitar technique, but as we have little time, but do not mind a little nostalgic interview. Tell us about your relationship with Mike Varney, how you found out, how is it, why this passion for instrumental shred? Etc.
VINNIE MOORE (hereinafter "VM"): I have not seen for a long time. I saw a couple of months ago in California, Santa Rosa UFO. He came to the show and was glad to see him, it seemed he was right. I did my first album "Mind's eye" with his label Shrapnel Records in the 80's but the first album where we really played with Vicious Rumors was what allowed me to make a few more with Mike.
AS: Thanks to the artists who were on the seal, as Cacophony, Tafolla, Kotzen, MacAlpine and you, you helped define the neoclassical metal and power metal future triumphs in Europe currently. But it gives the feeling that each of you trying to make the most complex record and possible more technical and fast solos. Was there a rivalry between you? Do you annoyed when Mike Varney discovered some new talent?
VM: No, actually sometimes played together. Tony MacAlpine played on my first record. Were also separated from each other but there was no rivalry between us. No, did not bother us at all. It was all good for someone to appear interesting.
AS: Do you think today I could appear as a stamp Shrapnel Records which devotes a large part of its catalog as the instrumental shred?
VM: I really do not know, is a difficult question and not up to me. It is possible but things are different now, music, Internet, etc ... it's hard to say what would happen now.
Ivan Macias (hereinafter "IM"): Possible but difficult.
VM: Possible ... hopefully! Certainly difficult.
AS: What was the relationship at that time with Tony MacAlpine?
VM: Good. We are still in touch. We did a concert in New Zealand a year ago with Tony playing keyboards and guitar. It's a great guitarist and a great guy, still keep in touch.
IM: He played keyboards on "Mind's Eye" and "The maze", but why did no guitar solo?
VM: I do not know, he was busy playing guitar on his own albums and I just needed a keyboard player.
AS: Did you think that one of your first jobs you out for a Pepsi?
V M: No, never! It was something I never imagined would happen, perhaps to Coca-Cola but never for Pepsi.
IM: Do you drink Coca-Cola?
VM: I have not drink soft drinks, soda only, but used to drink Diet Coke (authors note: "Diet Coke" is the name given in the USA to Coca-Cola Light).
(What you will find on YouTube: the extended version for the Mexican market Whereupon the guitar solo is even longer All incunable..)
AS: In some biographies says there became very satisfied with your first album Vicious Rumors, called "Soldiers of the night". Is that true?
VM: Well, somehow you was a great experience to play with them, they were nice guys and it was great but ... you know? go to the studio and having to record in two days was all hard disk. Also musically sounds were made ??increasingly heavys, more trash, and they wanted to do something different, so we took two different directions. I wanted to explore different areas, do something more varied.
AS: We consider, as experts in guitarreo we think we are or try to be, that you, Tony MacAlpine, Yngwie Malmsteen and Chris Impelliteri definísteis neoclassical metal bases. Would you be okay? And which one you think is better?
VM: Wow! (Nda: was remarkable surprise face that put as said above onomatopoeia) do not know, Ritchie Blackmore in that category was the first guitarist that inspired me to go in this direction and Al Di Meola also. little. I do not know. It's a question that I can not answer, only enjoy what I do. Maybe you should ask Yngwie, lol.
AS: And ending with this review of the past, what attracted you to the neoclassical metal? Was it because you like classical music?
VM: At first it was because I was interested guitarists who were also inspired by classical music as Ritchie Blackmore and Al Di Meola, and made ??me go in that direction. I remember interviewing Ritchie Blackmore mentioning Bach, Beethoven and that's when I started researching classical music.
IM: Did you get lessons in classical music?
VM: No, never. I studied with a teacher or more rock-oriented jazz.
IM: Did you study piano?
VM: No, just guitar.
AS: Do you have nostalgia for that time?
VM: The late 80s was a great time and I am proud to have been part of it. It was a very cool time. It was a great time for instrumental guitar rock and I'm glad I participated in that music scene.
IM: Do you think the guitar will have that important in the world of music?
VM: I do not know, lol.
IM: But you like?
VM: What would I like? Sure! Of course!
IM: It's true that hard rock is not at its best. I wish more bands and guitarists arise.
VM: I wish, I hope so too.
AS: For the great job you did in the "Hey stoopid" by Alice Cooper, what do you think of the tour in his band must have been an amazing experience, with all that theatrical production that always leads Cooper?.
VM: It was fun, really enjoyed it. It was a great show and it was a great experience for me to join his band. It was very exciting. There were people in the audience with snakes!
AS: Let's talk about UFO. How did you end up in a band that is part of the history of rock and heavy?
VM: They were looking for a guitarist and a mutual friend recommended me, I sent him a CD with my music Phil Mogg, vocalist. It was.
AS: Do not feel pressure to have to replace a legendary guitarist Michael Schenker as is? Furthermore, to make matters worse, Blackmore and Schenker were precursors in the neoclassical heavy metal 70. How did you face having to play his solos live?
VM: No, I did not replace anyone feeling because I came into the band and immediately started working on a new album writing songs, and then recording and tour where I had to learn the old songs of the classic band material . It was fun to become part of UFO.
AS: Do you think your career is going to long UFO?
VM: We have 8 or 9 years together, with a new album that's coming out shortly. It's hard to say how long it will last, the boys will get older, so who knows.
IM: It depends on many things ...
IM: Can you confirm if one or two more albums?
VM: I do not know. I really do not know.
AS: And if so, do you think people will not accept as his guitarist or think will happen as Steve Morse, who despite carrying more than fifteen years in Deep Purple many still consider Ritchie Blackmore as its authentic guitarist?
VM: It depends on the fans, I think.
IM: Have you ever talked to your fans about it?
VM: I honestly believe most of them accepted me with open arms and that's a nice feeling.
AS: When you came to Barcelona with UFO, the next week also starred Michael Schenker. Part of the set-list for both shows was the same. Not rally, but we liked most UFO lyrics that you not interpreted by Schenker and his band.
VM: Thank you!
IM: Why do you think the electric guitar is not the popularity it had in the 80s?
VM: I do not know, things are always changing and people are interested in different things.
IM: You may want products industry with a handsome young singer surrounded by girls.
VM: Could be.
IM: What do you think the guitar festival G3 Steve Vai and Joe Satriani?
VM: It's great. I was once at a jam with them 5 or 10 years ago, playing a few songs at the end. It was fun, they are great players and it was a great guitar festival.
IM: How about participating in a G3 someday?
VM: Yeah, someday would be nice.
IM: For me it would be a dream to see a G3 with Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and you.
VM: Call Joe and tell!
IM: I told you on Facebook but did not answer me.
VM: Oh thank you!
AS: Our generation over thirty years having started playing at most concerning Malmsteen, Vai and of course the whole family Shrapnel. We did not think it could get higher than that level. Today, the "Generation youtube" video hangs with less than 20 years old and have a technical mastery in many cases superior to you. The referent Tiago Della Vega could be that 2,008 broke the Guiness record speed playing "Flight of the bumble-bee" at 320 bpm's and now just surpassed 750 bpm's touching . Do you think these young people are cyborgs or has been some kind of genetic evolutionary leap? Are you not envy those who sentasteis the foundation for a new way of playing and now I have passed?
VM: I do not know. Might be robots, people who have robotic arms that allow them to play faster.
IM: perhaps too mechanical ...
VM: It depends on the guitar, but for me the important thing is the music and passion. Playing fast is also playing well but slow.
IM: We are a radio show in Barcelona and you have a song called "Never been to Barcelona." When you come, do you will change the name of the theme? And what should you titularas well?
VM: Now I've been there. Yes, "I've been to Barcelona". The idea for the title came from the song "Never been to Spain", was a piece of classic acoustic sound (nda: after a search by the Bible allmusic.com have found that belongs to country singer Waylon Jennings).
IM: If the disc reissues have to tell the company to put the correct name.
VM: Yes, I will change it.
AS & IM: Thank you for your attention Vinnie has been a pleasure.
VM: Thank you.
