7th November 2009

It has been several years since we last heard a solo record from Vinnie Moore, but now the wait is finally over for his fans as “To The Core” has been just released to wide spread acclaim. “To The Core” features shred guitar, which Moore is known for, but this time around he has fused a lot more interesting musical passages, riffs, solos and a picking style that’ll leave the listener in a state of awe. Oh yes, it’s not just technical, it’s well played and executed instrumental rock music that’ll get you tapping your feet to his every beat. Musically, Moore has definitely taken the pains to put together something very well produced and out of the ordinary. Seeing that the album was recorded at his home studio, “To The Core” speaks volumes of musical perfection and bliss.


Llisten to a streaming audio interview of Vinnie Moore regarding his newest instrumental sensation.

Top 10 Shred Albums of All Time

Exerpt from Guitar World.com - July 2009


Wow … had to dust off the ol’ cassette deck for this one! Sure, faster shredders may have been left off this list, but arpeggio for arpeggio, these 10 albums strike the finest balance between tasteful melody and “no way did he just play that!”

Note: For those of you born after 1985, a cassette is a small, flat plastic cartridge that contains a spool of 1/8" audiotape. Cassette players, although now nearly obsolete, are most commonly found in cheap rental cars.

10) Greg Howe (Shrapnel, 1988).

9) Speed Metal Symphony (Shrapnel, 1987) Cacophony Speed Metal Symphony

8) Michael Lee Firkins (Shrapnel, 1990) Michael Lee Firkins

7) Powers of Ten (Warner Bros., 1992) Shawn Lane

6) Surfing With the Alien (Relativity, 1987) Joe Satriani

5) Passion and Warfare (Relativity, 1990) Steve Va

4) Edge of Insanity (Shrapnel, 1986) Tony MacAlpine

3) Mind’s Eye (Shrapnel, 1986) Vinnie Moore
Only one year after Yngwie unleashed his fury on U.S. shores, Vinnie Moore responded with the “Oh yeah? Check this out” release Mind’s Eye. On “Daydream,” Moore demonstrates his grasp of classical themes and motifs; then, on “The Journey,” he shows he can do it with “feel.”

2) Live: Extreme Volume (Shrapnel, 1988) Racer X

1) Rising Force (Polydor, 1985) Yngwie Malmsteen

Vinnie to appear at Zoe Club in Milan in Piazza Anita Garibaldi 13, Milan on 19th July 2009

Guitarday 5: the countdown begins!
Published on 24 Jun 2009 by Alessandro Benedettelli

TRANSLATED FROM ITALIAN:

At last we can start the countdown of days that separate us from the next edition of the most eagerly awaited among guitarists: I am of course talking about the Guitarday, which this year has reached its fifth edition.
As players we have two of the greatest Guitar Heroes: Vinnie Moore and Patrick Rondat, who will perform Sunday July 19 at Zoe Club in Milan together with many other great masters of our own six-string, like Massimo Varini, Carlo Fimiani, Alex and Stornello many more.
The event will take place from 16.00 at Zoe Club in Milan in Piazza Anita Garibaldi 13, Milan.
Inside the room will be also an exhibition of international brands and makers of our own high level.

Of note, the presence of progeny, guests of this fifth edition: the progeny, known tribute band Dream Theater, will open the day with their great technique and professionalism.
Inside the Guitarday is expected, as new, the presence of a room dedicated to the testing of the instruments on display: all will come to see, hear and touch the exhibits!
At the end of the event, thanks to collaboration with Cris Music, will be pulled out an electric guitar Dean. Revenue for the event will be donated to Emergency.
The price of entry for the entire event (including the exhibition of musical instruments) is 12 euros.

Rock Legends Carmine Appice and Vinnie Moore to play at The Music Farm

 

On May 9th, 2009 you WILL want to make your way down to The Music Farm in Orrville, Ohio. Two of rock and roll’s super-stars will be performing individual, in-depth clinics for all to see. Drummer Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Jeff Beck, Ted Nugent) and Guitarist Vinnie Moore (UFO, Alice Cooper) will rock out in Orrville at the local music superstore.

This extraordinary event is being hosted at The Music Farm in celebration of their 5 year anniversary. Best of all, the event is entirely FREE to the public! The Music Farm's President, Brian Robinson, couldn't be more excited. "We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 5 year anniversary! Rock and Roll, FREE food, prizes, and a lot more Rock and Roll!”
To give you an idea about how big of an event this will be, you have to understand where both of these “Rock-Stars” came from. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Carmine Appice was known for his unique style of “heavy drumming”. To quote Rick Van Horn (Modern Drummer Magazine), "He set the foundation for heavy drumming ... before Bonham, before Ian Paice... before anyone else". That in itself is a testament to Carmine’s resume but, add a few of the legends he has worked with; Vanilla Fudge, Ozzy Osbourne, Beck, Bogert & Appice, Paul Stanley, Pink Floyd etc., and it soon becomes clear that this man had a hand in shaping music as we know it.
Carmine not only plays music, he also teaches. Not to be taken lightly, as Carmine has written and published books on exactly that. Appice's drum instruction book The Realistic Rock Drum Method was first published in 1972. The book covers the classic information of basic rock rhythms and polyrhythms, linear rudiments and groupings, shuffle rhythms, hi-hat and double bass drum exercises. The Realistic Rock Drum Method is a best selling drum book.

It was clear that guitarist Vinnie Moore was born to live, eat, and breathe music. Vinnie was only 12 years of age when he was discovered by Shrapnel Records Executive, Mike Varney, from a magazine article. Vinnie had his first claim to fame by appearing in a Pepsi commercial in 1985. Only his hands were shown, as it was his outstanding guitar playing they were interested in. Soon after, Vinnie released his first solo album Mind's Eye on Shrapnel Records and featured Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai) on keyboards. This record went on to win many guitar player awards, as well as sell over 100,000 copies.
After years of refining his own style of “shred” guitar, Vinnie was asked to join Alice Cooper on tour, and went on to appear on Alice’s Hey Stoopid album. With Vinnie’s current project “UFO”, you can see him play to crowds of thousands. UFO was ranked #74 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. Vinnie is known for being one of the most influential guitar players to emerge from the “shredder boom” of the late 1980’s.

Carmine, and Vinnie are endorsees of Ddrum Percussion and Dean Guitars. Both companies are subsidiaries of Armadillo Enterprises out of Tampa, Florida. It has been whispered through the grapevine, that Armadillo CEO, Elliot Rubinson will make an appearance at The Music Farm on May 9th to be a part of a “Super-Group” Jam.

The clinic on May 9th is FREE and will last from 11am to 7pm (EST). There will be FREE food and beverage provided by East of Chicago, of Orrville. Along with the clinic, there will be giveaways throughout the day. The Music Farm will also offer a special “Clinic Sale” that will offer attendees of the clinic the chance to save big money on their favorite musical instruments.
More information can be found at www.themusicfarm.com or by calling 330-682-5595.

Vinnie Moore to the core

TO THE CORE REVIEW

Vinnie Moore is back with another instrumental album that features his amazing powers on the six-string.
Moore is a human dynamo on every song. He has it all: Power, grace, subtlety and in-yer-face insanity.

Instrumental albums can be difficult to review as what do you say about music without words?
It is either interesting or boring. In this case it is not only interesting but awe-inspiring.

Moore is most impressive on "Remorse." How can he get his fingers to move that fast?
The clarity of each note is perfect and the finesse shown is technically staggering.
The bottom line here is that this is a guitar player's paradise.
If you want to be blown away with virtuosic playing then pick up To the Core by Vinnie Moore.

"To The Core" recording lineup:

Vinnie Moore - Guitar

Tim Lehner - Keyboards

As reported on the Roadrunner website:

Moore spent the last several years on tour with UFO. Once off the road, Vinnie took his time meticulously laying down the tracks to his newest guitar instrumental masterpiece.

Choosing a very retro-contemporary rock style mixed with many other styles and influences, Moore decided he would make it a good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll instrumental album. It's just Vinnie Moore, his guitar, and his raw guitar talent — all the ingredients that make this album a work of art.

"The only plan I had when making this record was to do some things I have never done before," explains Vinnie. "I am into many types of music and wanted to make a record where I could just let it all pour out without limitations. I am basically a rock guy but all these other influences that filter into my music. You can hear many styles from an R&B/hip hop vibe to one that is heavy but has an indian vibe with lots of exotic percussion. I even have a couple tunes with techno elements, some funk, some blues and some bepop. Hell, there is even some motorcycles on it and I even played slide guitar on 'Jigsaw', which is fairly new for me. The common thread that ties it all together is probably the fact that it's me playing guitar through it all."

Hear & meet Vinnie Moore at the Willis Music Superstore grand opening!
To say this will be an event does no justice to the word! We'll have great live music all day, instant 10% cash rebates on all Fender, Squier and Jackson gear, specials on the EVH gear and world famous guitarist Vinnie Moore will be here playing, signing autographs and just hangin' out. Guitar One magazine voted Vinnie one of the all time shredders and his "Minds Eye" one of the top 3 shred albums ever! But the man does much more than burn- his sense of melody is incredible and while he gets to show off his rock chops as the lead guitarist for UFO, he's more than capable of playing classical, jazz and funk.

Loads of various additions to the website: Video Clip's, Articles and Photos..

 

The Guitar show began in 1984 as a weekly television show on Manhattan Cable in New York City. The show was produced and hosted by Christian Roebling. All guitar styles were presented from Jazz to Rock and Folk to Classical. The list of guitarists that appeared reads like a who's who of guitar playing.

The very first Guitar Show series began with special guest Les Paul. The show was filmed on location at Fat Tuesday's in New York City.A total of 53 shows were taped. Some of the guests were Joe Pass, John Hammond, Tal Farlow, Johnny "Clyde" Copeland, Larry Coryell, Jim Hall, Paul Gilbert, Steve Morse, Bill Frisell and many others. The legendary Jimmy Page appeared on the series with Les Paul in 1985 after Led Zepplin reunited for LIve Aid. It was taped on location at Les Paul's house.

"It was an incredible series that I got to meet so many of my heroes, like Jimmy Page and young incredible guitarists like Vinnie Moore. The Guitar Show was meant to have an intimate look at these guitar greats and I think we accomplished that. I believe Vinnie just won an award from Guitar Player Magazine about the best new guitar player or something to that effect. I was introduced to him from my friends at Ibanez guitars, which he was an endorser at the time. Vinnie sure could play. On the show he played (3) songs" Christian Roebling

VM performs 'Doctor Doctor' at 'Guitar Gods NAMM' with Michael Schenker at Anaheims House of Blues

On Saturday Jan. 17, in conjunction with the winter NAMM show,
Entitled 'Guitar Gods NAMM' was billed as featuring Michael Schenker, Wayne Findlay (MSG),
Robin McAuley (ex-MSG), Brian Tichy (listed as ex-Ozzy), Foreigner, Velvet Revolver, Billy Idol),
Robbie Crane (RATT), Warren DeMartini (RATT) and Frank Hannon (Tesla).

Vinnie performed on stage jamming at the 'House of Blues' in Anaheim on Saturday, January 17th
with Michael Schenker, performing UFO's 'Doctor Doctor'

"Doctor Doctor" Who is that behind the curtain slapping on his guitar? Vinnie Moore came in on this song and added a fullness to it. He has been playing with UFO for some time now and is rock solid. For those UFO fans who thought that there may be some animosity between MS and VM - they hugged before and after the song.

 

According to a post on the 'Comparison Forum':

Saturday was crazy. Went to the party at House of Blues and saw Warren DeMartiini,
Wayne Findlay, Carlos Cavazo, Vinnie Moore, and Michael Schenker all jammin' together.

Robin McAuley handled all vocals

SET LIST

Armed and Ready
Only You Can Rock Me
Lights Out
On and On
Lovedrive (with Kottak on drums)
Doctor Doctor (with Vinnie Moore playing the leads)
Rock Bottom (with Warren DeMartini sharing and trading leads)
and after a short break where about half the crowd had left, thinking the show was over...
Goin' Down (with Leslie West and Rev Jones (exMSG))
And finally:
Never In My Life (also with Leslie and Rev)
