UFO - Classic Rock

Of course you don’t need to attach more importance to this piece of news than it necessarily has, but it certainly deserves to be mentioned: for the first time in more than 20 years, one of the most British rock bands in music history has recorded a studio album in their native country. Their latest offering is entitled A Conspiracy Of Stars, was cut by rock legend UFO and breathes that typically British easy-going confidence for which this band has been known for over 45 years.

A strong release consisting of eleven songs which combine everything that the group surrounding frontman Phil Mogg stands for: meaty riffs, distinctive hooks, diverse songwriting, intelligent lyrics and that generally laid-back attitude which we have associated with UFO from the start. The fact that A Conspiracy Of Stars was produced and mixed by Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore, among others) may be considered another successful element in a thoroughly consistent release. To cut a long story short: their 22nd studio recording to date sees UFO prove that past and present can be blended in a homogeneous whole. 

A Conspiracy Of Stars presents UFO’s current line-up for the first time: along with the original members, Phil Mogg (vocals), Paul Raymond (keyboards, guitar) and Andy Parker (drums), lead guitarist Vinnie Moore has been a permanent member of the group since 2004, American bassist Rob De Luca joining the fold in 2012. De Luca is not only a brilliant instrumentalist but has also contributed two of the album tracks as a songwriter. The majority of the new material was composed by Vinnie Moore, the album also featuring a song by Paul Raymond and a collaboration between Raymond and De Luca. The lyrics were penned by frontman Phil Mogg. 

Talking of which: once again, Mogg proves his talent as a keen observer of the human species. Despite his exceptional position in the international rock’n’roll genre, the British vocalist has remained a man of the people. Mogg continues to be sympathetic to the working class, that’s where his roots are, those are the people that the UFO singer continues to feel close to. Listening to UFO’s new material, you can hear his origins in his songs, in his lyrics, which – despite plays on words and conscious ambiguities – prove his unconditional down-to-earthiness and produce wonderfully poetic phrases such as: “The scatter rollers coming down, summers been and turned around, it don’t seem so long ago, that you were my precious cargo,” he sings on ‘Precious Cargo’, an equally subtle declaration of love as the number ‘Killing Kind’, which has Mogg kick off with the words: “Tell a story about love and what lovers find, a story of possession, the killing kind.” In view of so much verbal aesthetics it comes as no surprise that the UFO vocalist is appreciated the world over for his sensitive and carefully written lyrics. 

Lyrics and music for A Conspiracy Of Stars were written and composed in summer 2014. The band met for rehearsals at the Barn Room studios in Kent in mid-August before UFO moved a few miles further east to Chris Tsangarides’ Ecology Rooms studio, where they recorded their latest oeuvre, supported by the Greek Cypriot-British sound engineer, from late August until mid-September. Coincidentally, Tsangarides was working at the studio as a 14-year-old trainee when UFO recorded their debut album UFO 1 in England in 1970.  So everything’s ready: A Conspiracy Of Stars is all wrapped up, the tour to support the album in spring 2015 has been booked, and UFO are ready to embark on the 22nd chapter of their career. Respect!

VooDoo Lounge

Kansas City, MO.  March 9, 2016

UFO w/ The Problems + Celebrity Host Eddie Trunk 3/9/16 Voodoo Lounge Kansas City,MO In an age where much of todays music fails to represent authenticity, and that glimmering presence; roll forward to today and rock & roll nostalgia returns, to remind the millennials how it’s done.

English rock band UFO came, saw and kicked ass at Voodoo Lounge in Kansas City,MO. With original singer Phil Mogg,Vinnie Moore,Paul Raymond, Andy Parker and Rob De Luca in tow, their live show was flawless and full of energy. From their classic Hit “Doctor Doctor”, to their most recent “Run Boy Run” from the new album “Conspiracy of Stars” the live show experience was blissful and unwavering. To hear the audience chanting U.F.O! U.F.O, made my neck tingle.

Celebrity Host, Eddie Trunk, of “That Metal Show” performed a private meet and greet for fans, and then jumped on stage to introduce one of his all-time favorite bands as a special and rare appearance for Kansas City. This experience was surely a document in rock history, but not before the main support band arrived on stage. The Problems, as they are called, blazed through an energetic set to celebrate the more youthful side of rock and roll. Front man and main songwriter Mike Borgia was there to celebrate his 12th studio album and their share of popularity in the market. A concert like this, reminds us that, the true art of performance and song is not lost.

CONCERT REVIEW

Translated from Japanese:

Weekend to Gas Monkey Live to see a UFO.

To be honest, it is overwhelmingly higher ratio that want to see a Vinnie Moore of guitarist rather than a UFO.

Mind's Eye, but neo-classical album still love 聴盤 of Time Odyssey, a feeling that had come out one head, even in the time of fast play boom to, I (not the best of the general reputation) Vicious Rumors of 1st. fan from the album.

Vicious Rumors is a also favorite band since Vinnie Moore is they leave, than in the United States is watching? But it had been expected, quite there is no opportunity.


Today live 20:00 venue, 21 o'clock curtain a little late.

This time, dare to adjust so as to arrive at the late, 20 pm too had arrived at the Gas Monkey Live, was the place that is already coming to an end first in the performance of the opening act Mothership.

The emergence of LEGACY from 21 o'clock.


Since watching the opening act of the last year of LOUDNESS become second time.

But when I first saw was able to have good feeling with metal Ppoku of the '80s, I felt a little unsatisfactory and listen Dattari monotonous tune when it comes to the second time about 45 minutes.

22 o'clock, finally appearance of UFO!

Advance to confirm the position of the keyboard, bingo is the expectation that the other side will probably position of Vinnie Moore.

What age group is relatively high also in the bonus, because relatively few people come closing in on the front row, it was seen in quite a good position. (But always things and split ....)

Was a surprising, clearly Vinnie Moore of that fan was often than the UFO in my peripheral.

However, since the past more than 10 years after becoming a member of the UFO, it might be a like Vinnie Moore as everyone UFO.

Appeared most surprised of is, grandpa of Phil Mogg.

And the skin head, but felt uneasy a little loose movement of the stoop, because originally not in the image of overwhelm style voice volume, in terms of performance was not dissatisfaction.

Rob De Luca of Bass is, I feel that I saw in the live of Sebastian Bach is.

This time, playing the Thunderbird Bass to Pete Wasy style.

But Vinnie's sounds good.

And sound pleasant and has come out bass than I thought.

I was crazy to play fairly in Rock Bottom, I felt not have to be sarcastic while also leaving atmosphere of the original song be because I'm Vinnie fan.

But playing an hour and a half had left the members finished, do not go back the customer.

But there is also a band that does not a pretty encore, this time because that classic is not playing wonder there is Angkor.

Most raised Doctor Doctor!


Vinnie's pretty play here.

Finally end with Shoot Shoot.

Ticket price, so I bought when cheap $ 5 and super cheap, enjoyed.

UFO LANDS AT GAS MONKEY LIVE!! DALLAS, TX – 03/11/16

Neil Armstrong walked on the moon in 1969. Joe Namath and the Jets upset the Colts in Super Bowl III in 1969. And UFOformed as an early hard rock group in 1969. You would think a band that has been rocking for 47 years would have gone through musical transformations, lineup changes and have a faithful fan following. In this case, you would be right as they have been voted #84 in VH-1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. And three of the original members have recorded and toured together for most of that time. And a packed house at the Gas Monkey Live couldn’t wait to hear UFO rock their faces off.

MOTHERSHIP and LEGACY performed well to open the show as people jostled to get in front of the stage. They warmed up the crowd, but this was a night for UFO-aholics. 

The GML staff took great care of us, as they always do, and the crowd shouted “U-F-O” in unison as the lights dimmed and the members of the band walked onstage to thunderous applause. Everyone was in great shape and sounded very tight as they started with a rocking jam before jumping into “We Belong To The Night.” Vocalist Phil Mogg has a slightly deeper voice, which fit him and the songs perfectly, and he still carries the microphone stand around the stage, just as he’s always done. The guitarists were three abreast across the stage and showed everyone that rock and roll is here to stay.

The applause kept going as Phil began “Fight Night” to the adoration of the fans. Lead guitarist Vinnie Moore launched the first of his many solos that revved an already hyped-up crowd. Rob De Luca, a standout bass player, also shined with a solo on this KISS-sounding song.

Andy Parker then sparkled with a dirty drum beat on “Run Boy Run” off their newest album, Conspiracy of Stars, their 22nd studio album. Keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Paul Raymond had a hand in the 3-pronged guitar attack before switching instruments to tease us with a keys solo. A pure rock and roll ending made this song an early fan favorite.

Phil ditched his leather jacket and sniffed his armpits to let the audience know he didn’t want to offend anyone. Vinnie again had a highlight spot on “Lights Out” before they slowed it down and Phil carried “Rollin Rollin” with its very personal lyrics and haunting melody.

A few ladies wearing painted-on jeans showed up in the standing room only area as Mr. Mogg toasted the night with a beer and the band played “Venus.” The other two guitarists turned it into a jam as Vinnie had a helluva stint on the type of song I played as a kid to drive my parents crazy, “Only You Can Rock Me.” Once again, Phil’s voice and stage presence carried “Burn Your House Down” while Vinnie made the notes linger long after his fingers left the strings. Afterward, Phil gave a salute to Keith Emerson ofEMERSON, LAKE & PALMER fame as we’re losing way too many legends and childhood heroes and then laid down a wicked drum beat as the band played “Cherry.”

Paul opened the next song with a mystical keyboard solo that reminded everyone of the greatness of Mr. Emerson before “Love To Love” turned into a classic 70’s rock jam.

Rob got nasty on the bass, then a hard chord change evolved into a heavy guitar solo that pulsated through the audience. Phil enjoyed himself as the spry 67-year-old danced the song away. A drunk woman pulled the “Look at me! Look at me!” routine, but most of us were able to maintain our focus on the band. We’re glad we did as “Messiah Of Love” was pure rock and roll.

All the musicians had solos on “Makin’ Moves,” my new favoriteUFO song. The crowd erupted for Andy’s drumming and loved watching Phil bust a move again through the instrumentals. They finished with “Rock Bottom,” a song made for concerts. Everyone got a chance to put their talents on display, lead and rhythm dueled and played off each other and all three jammed for several minutes to show the youngsters how to close out a rock and roll show.

Deafening shouts of “U-F-O!” brought them back for an encore starting with my old favorite, “Doctor Doctor.” Even though it’s on my personal playlist, it never sounded better than it did Friday night. The five talented musicians on the stage were having fun, especially Paul, who swung his guitar like Machine Gun Kelly robbing a bank. This was contagious as the crowd reacted to the music and the antics.

If that had been the finale, the crowd would have been thrilled, but they added “Shoot Shoot” to top off a great night. Once again, each one showed their prowess on their instrument. Andy and Rob highlighted before they finished with a kick ass jam that did indeed rock our faces off. Damn, it was fun! The eclectic crowd of heavy metal T-shirt wearers didn’t want the show to end as this Friday had all the subtleness of a full moon Saturday night.

Some people traveled in packs, some were lone wolves and one hot mom brought her teenage son to introduce him to good music. I watched to see if she used him as her wingman, but lost sight of her in the overflowing crowd.

There were many highlights during the night as one would expect of such a seasoned band. Along with the three long time veterans, Vinnie Moore has been with them for 13 years and Rob De Luca has played for eight. It shows as they play off each other well, fill in for one another well and have put together a show that flows, builds up excitement and leaves you knowing you have been a part of the show, not just another concert attendee. Their music speaks for itself as their discography also includes over two dozen live and compilation albums.

Starting with album rock in the early days of FM, when DJs played entire albums, they perfected their craft by constant touring, making a big splash in Japan and Germany. They also learned from others as they played so many stadium concerts with ten or 15 other bands on the bill. All this has made for a tight unit that still puts out damn good music and delivers an exciting concert for their legions of fans! A special thanks goes to Brice at Gas Monkey Live for all his help.

UFO Concert Review, San Antonio, TX, March 12, 2016

I’m not going to lie, I haven’t been a lifelong UFO fan.  In fact, and it’s been mentioned here before, I didn’t become a fan until 1997.  I know of them, knew a few songs here and there mainly from metal bands covering songs of theirs (Fifth Angel anyone?), but it wasn’t until a colleague through work gave me his pristine record collection that I truly became aware of UFO, MSG and Uli era Scorpions.  That’s not very long overall, especially seeing how popular that stuff is here in Texas thanks to former San Antonio DJ Joe Anthony.  None of that was ever on the radio in Virginia although I do have to say that Steve from Skinnies Records in Norfolk always recommended that stuff since I had first met him in 87.  I just didn’t listen.  haha.

That being said, I dig UFO now and am glad to have had the opportunity to see them last night.  This isn’t your father’s UFO as many members have come and gone over the years.  Several friends said they weren’t going because neither Schenker nor Pete Way were in the band.  Fair enough, everyone needs their reasons I guess.  More so than the guitar playing, it was Mogg’s vocals that drew me to them and with him still in the band, I was in.

I got to the north side of San Antonio to Rodney’s place to immediately head downtown to grab dinner and show some friends from Mexico City the Alamo.  Our other friends from Corpus were there as well.  They all went to Dallas the night before to see UFO.  We snapped a few fotos at the Alamo, grabbed a drink on the Riverwalk then headed over to the Alamo Music Hall.  There was only one opener and UFO was scheduled to go on at 9PM.

I grabbed a tour shirt and we stayed out on the patio during the opener.  UFO went on promptly at 9 to a crowd that seemed like 700 or better.  Their taped intro was Alex Harvey’s Faith Healer, a song that I love thanks to Foetus covering it.  I’m pretty sure most folks there didn’t recognize the song.  They opened with We Belong to the Night from 1982’s Mechanix album.  They followed up with a song from 2012’s Seven Deadly album called Fight Night. The band didn’t shy away from newer stuff playing 2 from their latest effort, A Conspiracy of Stars, another from Seven Deadly and one from 1995’s awesome album, Walk on Water.

Highlights for me were Lights Out, Love to Love, Too Hot to Handle (not played that often so far on this tour), Venus and Rock Bottom.  The only lowlight would be the sound in the venue.  I thought with it being pretty filled that it may sound better but that just wasn’t the case.  I like the venue and the staff but the sound in there is just awful.  Roc Box (formerly Kapone’s) has it dialed in pretty well.

I’ve heard people bitch and moan about Vinnie Moore being in the band.  What?  That guy is great and does a great job.  Other non-classic era bassist, Rob De Luca f. of Spread Eagle is also in the band.  He’s been in since 2008.  Rounding out the lineup were Andy Parker, Paul Raymond and the incomparable Phil Mogg.  He’s 67 and his voice sounded great.  I was pleasantly surprised.   The band was tight and played everything at a good moderate pace.  Andy’s drumming was solid and he had no issues rocking the set.

Of course I brought The Book with me.  The band wasn’t set to do a meet and greet so I had to hope for them to come out after.  Unfortunately on Rob de Luca came out.  The plus side to that was that my friend Christie was there and she’s friends with him.  Through that connection, Rob graciously walked me to the band’s green room, offered me a Peroni and introduced me to Paul and Andy who both signed the book.  I caught Vinnie Moore in the hallway and he was super cool.  Phil wasn’t anywhere to be seen and then from another room he popped out with travel bags in both hands.  He looked at me, the book, then back at me and said, “I’ll sign it after I drop this off on the bus.”  I offered to help carry his stuff and he responded, “That’s nice of you but I’ve got it.  And you know, I better sign this now because I likely won’t come back off of the bus.”  I thanked him for his time and for his music.  He made a funny crack about the picture of him and thanked me again for offering to carry his stuff.  I think that may have been the only thing he signed after the show.  SCORE!  I owe Christie big time for that hookup.

After the show, we hit IHOP then back to Rodney’s and listened to records until the wee hours of the morning.  After 2 hours of sleep I got up and drove home.  What a great night!

CONCERT REVIEW and PHOTOS - Alamo City Music Hall

Conspiracy of stars, consistency of classic rock continue to lift UFO

When it comes to classic rock done the way it should be combined with a band that refuses to rest on its laurels when it has every right to, they don't come much more consistent than UFO. The veteran English rockers proved as much again last Saturday before approximately 700 fans inside downtown San Antonio's Alamo City Music Hall, combining a slew of classics with just as many newer tunes in showcasing both ends of a career that began in 1969 and had the crowd chanting "U-F-O" on several occasions.

Led by original vocalist Phil Mogg and original drummer Andy Parker, UFO performed 15 songs, virtually split equally between the favorites and the fresher offerings in a 98-minute set that included locals Reverand Lil' Timmy and The Outlaw Revival Band as the only support act.

Opening with 1982's "We Belong to the Night," UFO jumped 30 years ahead to 2012's Seven Deadly with "Fight Night" before unveiling the first live offering of the evening from latest album A Conspiracy of Stars with "Run Boy Run" (see setlist in slideshow). Along with veteran guitarist/keyboardist Paul Raymond, lead guitarist Vinnie Moore and bassist Rob De Luca, UFO soon thereafter gave the crowd what it wanted with "Too Hot to Handle" and "Only You Can Rock Me."

Following those late 1970s tunes, Mogg finally got comfortable eight songs into the show by taking off his black jacket as UFO returned to Seven Deadly with "Burn Your House Down." Mogg didn't tell as many jokes as he did during the South Texas Rockfest at Sunken Garden Theater in 2011, when he basically doubled as a comic, as he kept the talking to a more reserved tone that concentrated on delivering a quality vocal performance. Mogg did make a reference to Justin Bieber at one point, but in the dismal din of the dark dungeon that is Alamo City Music Hall, it was difficult to make out entirely what he said. The venue's customary darkness wasn't lost on the vocalist, either, as he peered out to the crowd and followed in the footsteps of many musicians before him when he remarked, "We can't see very far." Moments later, however, that was forgotten as UFO received arguably the loudest cheers of the night with "Love to Love"-- somewhat of a surprise given the popularity of the other classics in the band's 47-year arsenal.

While the southpaw Raymond and De Luca -- who is scheduled to return to Alamo City Music Hall on Friday, May 6 when he plays in former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach's solo band that includes San Antonio drummer Bobby Jarzombek -- combined for backup vocals on stage left, it was Moore's flawless guitar work on stage right that further fueled UFO's consistency as a live act. The group's 11-minute version of "Rock Bottom" always stands out in large part to Moore's extended solo, and when the remainder of the song combines with the rest of the band, it makes for the highlight of the evening to round out the regular portion of the set.

UFO's brief subsequent departure merely gave the audience another opportunity to chant its name, and Mogg and Co. happily obliged with UFO's usual two encores: "Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot."

The 67-year-old Mogg and soon-to-be 54-year-old Parker demonstrated again that they still have it and show no signs of slowing down, much to the delight of a crowd that will always turn out for UFO as long as it continues to return to town. The band also made a special impression on opening act Reverand Lil' Timmy, who told AXS during the show, "They were the nicest band we've ever played with. They even moved their equipment around so we could have more room."

Nice guys finish last? Not in UFO's case -- where there's plenty of room for compassion among the conspiracy of stars and consistency of timeless classic rock.

Though the show was on a Sunday and a good portion of the crowd, yours truly included, had to work the next morning, it was well worth the exhaustion we would face the next day to catch this legendary band. If they're coming anywhere near you on the remainder of their tour, you must catch this show, you will not be disappointed! - READ FULL REVIEW

VINNIE MOORE INTERVIEW

UFO will be greeted with a sold out show at The Coach House Mar. 20 as they return to the local venue they’ve played numerous times over the years.

“We love the antique shops and also some of the bars and restaurants in the area. Ha!” guitarist Vinnie Moore quipped. “We always seem to have a packed house full of energetic fans which makes it a pleasure. And it’s a great sounding room.”

Following the release of their 21st album last year, A Conspiracy Of Stars, the English hard rock band is adding a few of the newer tracks to their set list of greatly-anticipated songs.

“Of course we try to keep in as many of the classics as possible, and also play a couple from the 80’s era of the band,” Moore said.

“As far as new stuff, I love playing ‘Messiah of Love’ and ‘Rollin’ Rollin’. ‘Venus’ (from the album Covenant) is always a blast to play, but really I enjoy everything.”

Moore became the permanent lead guitarist with UFO in 2003, began touring with the band and first appeared on You Are Here as well as each of the following albums.

“When I was a teenager learning to play guitar I was a UFO fan,” Moore acknowledged. “I never would have dreamed that someday I would be in the band.

“I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s so I was into all the classic stuff like The Beatles, Led Zep, Deep Purple, Queen, Rainbow, etc.”

Some of the classic UFO songs and fan favorites were during the Michael Schenker era in the 70’s. Songs such as “Doctor, Doctor,” “Lights Out,” “Too Hot To Handle” and “Rock Bottom” have been performed untold times by the group but may vary slightly depending on the audience and the venue.

“A lot of my soloing is improvised so it is different from night to night,” Moore said. “This keeps it fresh and exciting for me and keeps me on my toes and in the moment.

“It’s a little like a pro sports game. There are certain guidelines that you know about in advance, but everyone watches because no one knows what the outcome is going to be on that particular day. And this is why it’s exciting.”

While there have been numerous personnel changes over years, vocalist Phil Mogg and drummer Andy Parker have worked together since the inception of the group. What’s the secret?

“Probably copious amounts of booze,” Moore teased.

If you’re in a band starting out today, Moore suggests doing it “Because you love it and have a passion for it.” To, “Follow your love and become great at what you do.

“At that point, try to create and seize any opportunities that already exist or that you can dream up. Then let me know.”

As the California leg of their U.S. tour approaches, Moore added, “We look forward to seeing the fans at The Coach House.

“Thanks for your continued support.”

Concert Review: UFO @ The Canyon Club 3/24/2016

Pat Francis03.2016

maxresdefaultBritish hard rock quintet UFO landed at The Canyon Club Thursday night in Agoura Hills and gave the capacity crowd a 2 hour show of new songs and classic FM anthems.

Dressed in black and sporting a newly shaved head lead singer Phil Mogg took the stage looking like a Rock’N’Roll Nosferatu. Backed by classic line-up members Andy Parker (drums) and Paul Raymond (Keyboards, Rhythm Guitar) plus longtime lead guitarist Vinnie Moore and newcomer Rob De Luca UFO tore through a 16 song set list covering 22 studio albums from UFO’s 45 year career!

Newer songs such as “Fight Night” and “Run Boy Run” fit seamlessly into the show when played back to back with fan favorites “Lights Out” and “Too Hot To Handle.” All band members held down their part of the show effortlessly with Vinnie Moore rocking hard throughout. Moore has been in the band for over a decade and continues to breathe new life into the guitar licks created by the long departed Michael Schenker.

Rock fans will often say that the drummer is the first to go but original member Andy Parker showed absolutely no sign that retirement might be in his future. Parker pounded his drum kit into submission and kept the whole show moving like a freight train. As for the singer I can tell you without a doubt that Phil Mogg has still got the pipes. Despite his often incoherent stage patter Mogg’s voice is still in fine form and he sings every song with power and emotion.

The sold out Canyon Club audience was on its feet throughout the show and there was much hand banging and fist pumping to be found. Even one time member Simon Wright was seen in the crowd enjoying the show.

In the 2016 landscape of big stadium shows and preprogrammed auto tuned pop stars it is refreshing to see a legendary band like UFO still rocking hard after all these years.

– Set List –

We Belong To The Night
Fight Night
Run Boy Run
Lights Out
Too Hot To Handle
Venus
Only You Can Rock Me
Burn Your House Down
Cherry

UFO and 10 To Midnite, The Whisky, March 25, 2016

It’s was a Friday night in the wilds of Sunset Blvd, and those lucky enough to snag tickets early on were to witness a close encounter with the legendary UFO.The Whisky had been sold out for weeks, and the line of fans waiting would snake around the block and up the hill. There was a ton of anticipation in the air, and soon the venerable West Hollywood establishment would be packed to the rafter, awaiting the arrival of the iconic, hard rocking English band that has been thrilling the masses since their inception in 1969. 2016 would find UFO orbiting in the stratosphere, with a vast and epic sound that would fully envelope The Whisky.

But before the fans would be treated to a towering performance by UFO, local opening act 10 To Midnite would appear, ready and willing to take some names and kick some ass. When vocalist Tommy Delaney showed up onstage in a tank top that said “F*ck you” in big bold letters, you knew a party was about to commence all over that Whisky a Go Go stage!

dx0a5406 (1)10 To Midnite

10 To Midnite perform their own hot and heavy brand of rock and roll – and is the perfect band you would want to spend some quality party time with on a weekend at The Whisky. The band members seemed genuinely excited to be opening for UFO, and10 To Midnite instantly captivated the crowd with their wildly infectious hard rocking tunes. Opening with the rip-roaring infections of Crazy Nights, the L.A.-based collective impressed even those hell-bent on boarding the auditory adventure known as UFO.

Delaney is the classic rock and roll front man, with a ferocious wail in his voice and the wicked charisma and spiraling talent to back it all up. Alex O’Neill presented a wall of thunderous sound on lead guitar, while bassist Jose Ferro and drummer Vince Milanov packed a lethal rhythm section punch to the noggin. Songs such as Bang Bang Baby and Lie To Me would have been massive hits in the 80’s, and they actually sound pretty damn tight in this day and age. Unfortunately this was to the final performance for 10 To Midnite, and they sure the hell went out with a bang bang baby! Delaney even received a marriage proposal during the set from one of their many fans! There is truly no rest for the wicked, as a few of the 10 To Midniter’s will be regrouping in an all-new band going by the name of Angel City Rockers. Stay tuned, because you can just bet this new project will set your panties on fire!

UFO traveled on a mission into the Southland in support of their recent A Conspiracy Of Stars enterprise, their 21st studio effort to date. Opening with the powerhouse refrains of We Belong To The Night from the 1982 classic Mechanixrelease, one could witness right away a band at the very height of their craft! Phil Mogg’s voice was empowering and passionate, bringing the timeless songs to an ultra-vivid life. All that, and Mogg possessed a wickedly dry wit which he delivered with the in-between song banter. Vinnie Moore shreds into the stratosphere on guitar, clearly demonstrating why he is one of the most sought after axe men in the business. Paul Raymond colored everything with his intriguing keyboard interludes while bassist Rob De Luca and drummer Andy Parker brought it all down to the Earth with a striking precision. Even though the venue was jammed packed and the temperature beginning to soar, the excitement and energy in the room was beyond compare – with UFOdelivering a full on arena show within the confines of a truly intimate setting.

The crowd favorites just kept on arriving, with songs such as Fight Night, Lights Out, and Too Hot To Handle inspiring joyful singalongs with the fan base. And those wishing to hear the new material were treated to Run Boy Run and Messiah Of Love, two standout cuts from their A Conspiracy Of Stars masterwork. The magical night at The Whisky was raging on with Burn The House Down, Cherry and Rock Bottom bringing back those glorious memories while still sounding absolutely stunning in a live setting after all of these years. When the band arrived back from an encore and announced that it was request time, call outs of Doctor Doctor andShoot Shoot could be heard throughout a crowd not quite ready for the sonic journey to end – and of course UFO graciously accommodated the fans and played both the classic hits to a rapturous response! Such a tremendous grand finale from an outfit that can still rock your world after all of these years. And thus concluded another unforgettable performance at the world famous Whisky on the Sunset Strip!
