Here are some pictures from Friday Nights UK's Guitarfest 2008


8th November 2008


Thanks to Wolfie (Richard Ward) for the following report:

After a rushed friday I made this just in time to watch the quireboys
who never disappoint. In their 40 minute set they ran through some of
their older stuff, There She Goes, This Is Rock N Roll, 7 O'Clock
(played at 10 past seven) and stuff of the new Homewreckers &
Heartbreakers album - which prompted me to listen to the album this morning.

Vinnie was up next, introduced by Pete Way. To his backing track he
played some of his best solo stuff; The Maze, Meltdown, Ridin' High.
It's just a shame that Phil et al were'nt there. It was a nice UFO
sized stage with great sound and lighting - reminding me of Chepstow.

Marco Mendoza was up next with his brand of varied funk, rock, blues.
With Soren Anderson on guitar and stand in drummer Brent Fitz for an
absent Tommy Aldridge.

Mendoza and Fitz then joined Thunder Trio Luke Morley, Danny Bowes &
Ben Matthews for some covers of Bad Company and Thin Lizzy.

This was then followed by Dave Mustaine and Shaun Drover who did just
one song, Peace Sells. Again with Mendoza and Soren Anderson. This
didn't bother me as I don't really care for Megadeth, but it must
have pissed off the Megadeth fans who were expecting more than just
one song. For me, all this was excelent value for a recession busting
£10. The only problem was an £8 parking charge and £3.50 for half a
pint of tasteless lager

My postman has been very busy lately and after the positive e-mail responses I received from you guys after my

Clinic Review - Friday June 20th 2008 - Vinnie Moore Guitar Clinic in Germany

This has been translated from German to English through Babel

Vinnie started with 3 of song with those was ausführlichst soliert. The sound was class and one got the mouth no longer too with the fireworks at notes, the Vinnie of moorlands there toward public lap!

Madly that one could see times such a guitarist from 2m distance!

The Workshop was made due to Vinnie's co-operation with DEAN Guitars, in order to present its Signature guitar. Vinnie is an absolute full blood guitarist and explained, why he developed one with DEAN particularly on his desires cut guitar, which determines each guitarist would do, if that were so simply possible times. The guitar is one for it optimized Strat with an incredible neck, which is not painted, very well processed jumbo jet federations and somewhat larger Cutaways facilitates in high situations very fast to play.

The Bridge Pickup developed by Vinnie and Dean (called Shredhead) has a somewhat higher output than a standard PAF, however not as much that one gets a vermatschten sound, as with many Metal Pickups. At the neck two DiMarzio Pickups are used. There is clay/tone and a volume automatic controller, with which Vinnie works extremely actively. It steers thereby the distortion of the ENGL preliminary stage, which gives really very different sounds.

The guitar comes into a few weeks on the market and represents a genuine Custom shopproduct, from which it will give however also variants from Korea and Japan at favourable prices.

Finally the Engl Special edition Head E-670 is to be mentioned, all this which by Vinnie comes to a really very characteristic sound very warm from my personal view converts! Around the sound something to vary used Vinnie the still following devices:

T-Rex Replica Delay
MXR carbon CoPy similar to Delay M169
Material McCoy RMC-5 Wizard Wah, resembles very the standard Vox Wah

I spent a lot of research finding some sort of advertising from Musik-Service and came across this banner on their forum.
Please note that the date on the banner is incorrect (not 26.6.08) and is TODAY, Friday 20th June 2008, 3pm (20.6.08).

Er hat kürzlich mit dem US-Gitarrenhersteller DEAN ein eigenes Modell

entwickelt und zusammen mit dem deutschen Vertrieb M&T veranstaltet Musik-Service den einzigen Workshop in

2004 - 2006 'Quick Links' updated


19th June 2008

Originally this webpage was created as a link from UFO's Misty Green and Blue website to keep everyone updated on
Vinnie Moore's current solo work. As well as this I also wanted to create a retrospective prior to VM joining UFO in 2003.

This has, over the past year, developed into more than a page and is now a Vinnie Moore website and I felt the need
to update the navigation by creating 'Quick Links'. This involved new, 'Banner' links being created - lots of
Photoshop work (what fun) - as well as a new layout at the top of the page.

I will be expanding this over the next week or so but hopefully this helps to quickly link to various sections
within the VM environment and back into the 'Misty Green and Blue' pages. No longer will it be necessary to
trawl down this webpage trying to find 'Vinnie plays Hendrix in Italy' for example. Just click on the
Jimmy Hendrix Festival button above. Or if you want to remind yourself about the 2005 USA tour...
...OK I will add this later tonight :-) For now, Tris
