DRAGONFORCE shredder HERMAN LI
lists his Top Ten Guitarists

In an interview posted on the Roadrunners site, Herman speaks about his favorite players/writers that had a huge influence on his own work:

Vinnie Moore

He taught me the approach of the melodies and putting the whole thing together and a lot how his style is a real good mix of rock, neoclassical, fusion jazzy-stuff and he pulls it all together."

GLEN DROVER - New Album Metalusion Complete, Guest Musicians Revealed

Former MEGADETH / KING DIAMOND / EIDOLON guitarist Glen Drover has contacted BW&BK with the following exclusive update:
he new album, Metalusion, has many elements of metal, jazz fusion, prog and '70s hard rock, hence the name Metalusion (metal/fusion), and yet all the songs...

...I just finished the last piece of recording, which was a solo I recorded right after a solo that my buddy Vinnie Moore did for us.

What guests will be on the album you ask? Jeff Loomis (NEVERMORE), Frederik Akesson (OPETH), Chris Poland (OHM) and Vinnie Moore (UFO), who have all been nice enough to lend their talents to the album. Thanks guys! I am most proud and excited about the musicianship on this record. The guys have all played amazing, which is really an understatement!

Two high quality YouTube postings from EXPOMUSIC in Brazil

 

--

 

A published interview with Gus G, guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and Firewind

Gus G. Joined VM on stage in Greece, during the solo tour back in Feb this year

3. We have seen you sharing the stage with some of your guitar Idols, Uli Jon Roth and after that Vinnie Moore.
How did that happen? How did it feel to play next to your guitar Idols?

3. I saw Uli Jon Roth in the lobby of a hotel at the Namm show. I felt obliged to tell him that I named my band, Firewind, after his album. So I introduced myself and I explained to him about my band and surprisingly he turned around and said: "Ooooh so that's you! I've heard about your band. Thank you very much for that". So we started talking and we developed a friendship after that. I see him occasionally in this guitar shows and we jammed quite a few times. He is a great guy, one of my biggest inspirations.

I feel very fortunate that I got the chance to share the stage with him. Another great guy whom I grew up listening to his records was Vinnie Moore. I met him in Namm I think through Mike Amott. I've sent him some Firewind albums, we kept emailing each other and then when he played in Salonika, we caught up and he asked me if I wanted to join him on stage to jam a few songs and obviously I said yes.

UFO - NÜRNBERG SHOW POSTPONED

Due to the airport closures caused by the volcano eruption in Iceland, the band and crew are stranded in Greece.
The flights to Germany have been cancelled, so we are waiting for transport to shuttle us all
to Tuesday's gig in Oberhausen... 2300 km to go...
"Our apologies to everyone who was planning to come to the Nürnberg show. We are aiming to reschedule it as soon as possible."

18th April 2010 - am

Vinnie Moore posted the following update on his Official Fan Page

First 2 UFO shows rocked. We are in full tour mode now, playing Thessaloniki, Greece tonight.

We are heading to Germany tomorrow but have had to alter our travel plans because many airports have closed.
We now have to fly half way and drive the rest on the tour bus, and i think the last 30 miles will be on a camel,
so a 2 hour flight has become a 24+ excursion. there goes our day off. volcanic ash? wtf man?

Second installment of Aquiles Priester's tour diary

Second installment ofdrummer, Aquiles Priester - posting his continuation of a tour diary, which again, continues on his own website:

Vinnie Moore Diary Tour 2010 – Insane Flights at Dawn!!!

It’s over!!! It’s over!!! What a shame. I miss it already... I’m writing at Madri airport before boarding to São Paulo. I think this is the fourth or fifth time I pass through this very airport. Another airport we visited a lot was Milan airport due to connections.

After our day off in Cologne, Germany, we headed for Belgium by van and arrived there after about two hours. The venue was very cozy and in spite of all the snow outside there was a good heating system indoors and that cheered us up. The gig was one of the best of the whole tour and, in spite of all the snow falling in the region, more people than expected showed up. The owner of the pub said that people couldn’t even leave their houses due to past blizzards.

The following day we were going to play in London and left at 7am to arrive there at 5pm. In the course of this trip we even caught a ferry to get there. We only had time to drop off our luggage at the hotel and head out to set up the equipment and do a sound check. As the equipment was ours, the whole process took no more than an hour and a half, after which Vinnie conceded some interviews. That gave us some time to stroll close to the pub and buy some souvenirs. That was the only day when something like that was possible. At this gig we met Tristan, an extremely nice guy who takes care of Vinnie’s designs only because he is a huge fan. The following day we flew from London to Madrid and after another connection we arrived in Munich at 4pm. The crew had left London at 4am right after the gig to meet us at the Munich airport. This was the only way the band could sleep a little longer and the three guys of the crew took turns driving and sleeping. We left Munich airport and went straight to a pub in the city of Wetzlar. It was very cold and we had no time to warm up for this gig. After the gig was over and all the equipment loaded we arrived at the hotel at more or less 1am and slept until 5am when we got up and set out for Las Palmas, Spain. This time it was only the band and the sound technician, Martin. In other words, this was definitely going to be another nightmare since there’d be a local backline for all of us. To be on the safe side I always carry my DW 9000 double pedal, a closed hi-hat machine, two hi-hats and two Paiste splashes plus a Mega Cup Chime. These would save me if there wasn’t a decent ride available. We arrived at the end of the afternoon, left our things at the hotel and set off for the sound check. We were all exhausted due to the trip, but before the sound check the local promoter asked Vinnie to visit a fan. This boy was one of Vinnie’s biggest fans in Spain, but due to chemotherapy treatment wouldn’t be able to attend the gig and was completely desolated. With a huge smile on his face – and very willingly as usual – Vinnie didn’t think twice and took his guitar to jam with the boy. I thought his attitude was very worthy and this comes to show his concern as to his fans. Once again, his humane attitude took me by surprise.

This trip to Las Palmas was a nightmare for me in particular. As soon as I received my luggage still on the airport luggage conveyor – where all of my equipment was – I realized that all the straps and the extensor that rises so that the wheels can be used were all broken. I had to drag the damn bag around the airport because I couldn’t find a cart. People who saw me must have thought I was crazy because I was hugging my suitcase as if it were the most important thing in the world. Actually that was the only way I could carry it since it weighed almost 25 kilos. After all the hassle to set up a local drum set, I found time to buy another bag to transport my equipment the following day without looking like a madman at the airport....

Drummer, Aquiles Priester posted a tour diary, mid way through the VM Solo tour - interesting reading, which continues on his own website:

Vinnie Moore Diary Tour 2010 – Carnival in Germany!!!

We travelled six hours by van from Salerno to play in Pisa, also located in Italy. As soon as the gig was over and all the equipment into the van, we went straight to Milan airport to catch a flight the next day at 10 am. We left Pisa at 4 am and I didn’t even have time to see the tower that doesn’t fall. It took us another sleepless six hours to get back. We caught a flight to Budapest and then a connection to Istanbul, Turkey. Lucky for us, the hotel was located on a busy avenue and the pub where we would play was right across the street. We dropped off our luggage in our rooms and half an hour later – without having slept properly for the third night in a row – we started the whole process of the tour’s first gig without our equipment, which was still in the van in Italy. As I had already expected, it was no easy accomplishment… But all of this had started a week before…

Mike Dimeo and I had met at Rome airport on the 1st of February where we were received by Gabrielle, who works with the company that was managing all of the gigs. We hardly knew what a nice guy he’d prove to be. As the days went by, we began finding out. Mike had already been extremely nice the first time we met him. He had already played with bands such as Riot, The Lizards, Masterplan, among others. He was very experienced as to tours in Europe, since he’d done several of them. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, we took a shower and went after something to eat. At the reception we were informed that Vinnie Moore was already at the hotel, but we decided not to call him since we thought he might be sleeping. We did the right thing. He called us later and the three of us went out to dinner. Right after dinner we discussed the repertory to define the order of the songs and then went to sleep. Vinnie was always very open to our ideas and this was an indication that it would be a very easy tour, even though the schedule would be very hectic.

The following day we had our first rehearsal where we met bass player Lars Lehmann – who plays with Uli Jon Roth – and UFO’s sound technician Martin Leisner, who is also German just like Lars. Both of them arrived at the rehearsal straight from the airport, already getting used to the tough schedule we’d have to face during the tour. After all the equipment was set up, we began rehearsing the repertory, playing each song two or three times already on the stage of a venue called Cross Roads, where our first gig would take place. During the first day we rehearsed for about five hours, not counting the setting up of the equipment. Later we had dinner at a great pizzeria where we took our first photo together.
The following day things were pretty much the same. We rehearsed for another six or seven hours, now with an open PA and after the sound check. We rehearsed with the sound that would be used at the gig and even though it was terribly cold in the venue, the rehearsals went very well. Sometimes I looked sideways and saw Vinnie playing songs such as Daydream, Cinema and Check it Out! and simply couldn’t believe that I was there. In 1995 I had a band called Infra Blue and we played some of Vinnie’s songs and here I was, 15 years later, playing those same songs with him. The first time we played the song Cinema, of the Meltdown album, I remembered my friend Richard Powel, guitar player and a great fan of Vinnie’s work. He used to come to our rehearsals back then, at Frank Solari’s studio in Porto Alegre.
Very well, after rehearsal we went to the same pizzeria we been to the day before and I realized that Brazilian pizza is better than Italian pizza (laughter). During dinner I had Vinnie autograph all of the CDs I had bought over the years. He thought it was really cool that a drummer had all of his CDs (laughter).

The following day would be our first gig. We arrived at the venue at 5 pm and rehearsed the whole gig one more time. We were ready for our first gig. Even though we’d only done two rehearsals and one sound check, things went well and everyone was satisfied with the outcome of the first gig… especially Vinnie’s fans.

It was so cold during the second gig that when we played Saved By A Miracle, during which I have a drum solo, I wasn’t even working up a sweat yet. But anyways, I did it. I had to do it. It is different playing a solo when Vinnie is introducing me before the song. It is a lot of pressure. Another factor that causes pressure is that the drum solo is in the middle of the song, so the rest of the musicians are on stage waiting for my drum lick (which is always the same) to return to the song. The problem was that Tommy Aldridge had recorded the solo and I was playing it my way, but remitting to his solo in some parts. I had to respect the great master of the double bass drums. Besides him, Vinnie also had played with Joe Franco, Steve Smith, Shane Gaalaas, Van Romaine among others and Mike had already played with Bobby Rondinelli, Bobby Jarzombek among others. That is without mentioning Lars. In other words, they had already played with fantastic drummers I admire very much.

This time I’m playing a free drum solo, without bridges. When it’s time for me to begin the drum solo, I think about what I’m going to do and then I just play whatever comes to mind. A free solo is always risky and sometimes you’re not very lucky when executing it. Other times things simply flow naturally. It is a good way to practice improvisation, but it is very difficult doing this while those guys are standing on stage watching me every night.

After the third gig we went to Terano, still in Italy, where Vinnie would be doing a workshop. It was great to be able to observe him playing all the songs I was already used to listening to on my iPod. His punch, precision and feeling are amazing...
