|Vinnie needs no introduction to UFO fans, having just celebrated 14 years as the longest serving UFO guitarist. For those who may not be aware, Gus G. has spent the past decade affirming his status as one of metal’s reigning guitar virtuosos. Personally handpicked by Ozzy Osbourne in August 2009, he served as the heavy metal legend’s lead guitarist through spring 2017, while also establishing himself as an acclaimed solo artist with more than a dozen studio albums to his credit. He’s also managed to find time to perform worldwide with acts as diverse as Arch Enemy, Dream Evil and his own band, Firewind. Firewind released their 8th studio album Immortals at the beginning of 2017, earning critical acclaim and landing the Greek-based band on international sales charts.|

This magazine 'Aerial Visions review has just come to light
|September 2016 issue||Aerial Visions Review|
Translated from German:
Unbelievable, as time runs: Meanwhile, Vinnie Moore chon has been guitarist of the absolutely grandiose band UFO for twelve years. Anno dunnemals the eigenare producer Mike Varney, who had already Yngwie J. Malmsteen under his wings at Shrapnel Records, discovered this young guitar talent. At the tender age of twenty-two, his debut album "Mind's Eye" was released, which at that time caused a respectable look in the scene, and after the 2009 album "To The Core", Vinnie finally found the muse, Album, the eighth overall, and the second, since he is at UFO. That is a good thing. Vinnie says, "With my solo albums, I can cover a much broader musical spectrum. I enjoy this freedom, to be able to follow my mood wherever it leads me. So I can bring all my influences, from the rock over the blues to the be-bop and funk. L love so many arenas of music that I can not resist. I am a slave to this passion, and so my solo albums are so inspired. To write songs is for me the AllergroBte! I use my inspiration to create a certain mood and take the listener on a small trip, wherever I go, "This, my dear Vinnie, has succeeded you well, and I'm glad the thing is rocking for the most part "It Is The Time" has a beautiful heavy riff and a great groove, while the sound of the music is so intense that it is a real pleasure The highly melodic and yet rocky, "Faith" in the title, and musically expresses what we Rockfans all feel: Our beloved music gives us confidence and faith! The following seven songs go on like this and present us instrumental rock music guitar art, spiked with lots of emotions at the highest level. Not to be missed I liked the grandiose version of the ZZ Top classic, La Grange and the top-hammered, almost seven-minute instrumental ballad, A Million Miles Gone. Saustarkes album for friends of the genre, and everyone else should risk an ear!

Interesting article / interview
8 solo albums, 5 collaborations, 6 UFO albums, 2 Hot Licks’ guitar video clinics, 1 virtuoso… Of course we are referring to Vinnie Moore, the “Vin Man” as we the fans know him! He has accomplished quite a lot during his 30+ years of performance, but one wonders: who’s the man behind the strings? Well, to give you a proper answer in a few words is not fair to his career, so let’s take a look at those 30+ years of speed, accuracy, articulation and advanced lead guitar techniques!
He was only 12 when he got his first guitar; a teenager boy who looked up to the great guitar legends of that moment. Records by the Beatles like their eponymous double album from 1968 (from which he has covered While My Guitar Gently Weeps many times), Jeff Beck’s ‘Wired‘,Led Zeppelin’s ‘IV Zoso’, Deep Purple’s ‘Machine Head‘ and ‘Burn‘,Queen’s ‘A Night At The Opera‘, Van Halen’s self-titled album and many other bands; all of them were among his early influences...

Back from Germany and just starting to feel like I am in the right time zone.We made a lot of progress there with the new UFO "covers" album and i think we have some really good basic tracks. (drums, bass, rhythm guitar, keyboards, maybe even a guitar solo or 2). will start recording some additional guitars soon here at home. looking forward to getting into it.
To all of our fans in Germany, please accept our deepest apologies for cancelling our 3 shows there. we were really looking forward to playing and believe me, are definitely more disappointed than anyone. this is the first time this has happened since i've been in the band but it simply had to be done. as already mentioned, there was a health issue and we had no choice. but don't worry, nothing too serious...everyone is AOK. Thanks so much to all of you for your kind words and concern. Totally bummed about it but am very thankful that we were able to at least get so much work done on the new album. oh damn, forgive me but i just can't help myself.....here's the dirt... i fell down the stairs and my shoes fell off....and i hurt my big toe...i was OK physically but was very hurt emotionally. and i also had an eye problem, i couldn't see myself doing a gig. Bwahahaha....just kidding of course. sorry but that's the best i got.
Just wanted to give a little update. Once again, sorry and thanks!!
