AERIAL VISIONS - The Top Five Rock Albums of the Year!

The Best of 2015! Taylor Carlson's Picks for Best Shows and Albums of the Year

Aerial Visions comes in at Number 5 under the

Top Five Rock Albums poll

"I have always found this guy to be criminally underrated. One of the guitar virtuosos to emerge from Shrapnel Records in the 1980s, he has long been unleashing his distinctive style of shredding on the world, as was beautifully demonstrated on his 1980s releases like Mind’s Eye.As the new lead guitarist in UFO, having replaced Michael Schenker, he is finally getting the recognition that he deserves.

But he has not turned his back on a solo career! Aerial Visionsbeautifully demonstrates that Mr. Moore is still at the top of his game, and unleashing some of the best rock instrumentals out there. From melodic rock to bluesy material, from slower stuff to straight-up hard rock, this is an album that has all the bases covered. For fans, this one is a must own, and every bit the equal of his classic 80s work on Shrapnel"

Other bands in the Top 5 were EUROPE, STRYPER and Jeff Lynn's ELO

AERIAL VISIONS WEBPAGE

 

XG Extreme Guitar Tour, Vamp’d comes in at Number 2 under the

The Top Five Rock Shows of the Year

"Essentially, this night was a heavy metal fan’s wet dream. Following the opening set from Old James, the audience got a largely instrumental set from the always entertaining Vinnie Moore; this guy is a guitarist who has never gotten the proper credit, but he more than proved himself on this evening. His set was fantastic. If you have not seen this guy in concert, whether with UFO or as a solo artist, you need to. He is well worth your time and then some.

The next set was the real highlight of the evening, a band featuring Rainbow’s Joe Lynn Turner on vocals, Vinny Appice on drums, and Craig Goldy on guitar. The lineup alone should tell you everything that you need to know. This was a great mix of classic hard rock songs, including a performance of one of my all-time favorite Turner era Rainbow songs, “Death Alley Driver.” Tributes to Ronnie James Dio were a welcome addition as well.

Closing out the show was Uli Jon Roth, the legendary former Scorpions guitarist. He has long been leaving an impact on the rock and metal world, with numerous followers that range from fans to some of heavy metal’s biggest and best guitarists. Whatever this guy plays, he leaves an impression. Roth’s performances are a throwback of the best kind; there is a reason this guy is so influential and respected in the hard rock and heavy metal community. Fans discovered why for themselves at this gig."

Oter shows included Michael Angelo Batio, GIRLSCHOOL and RATT

The XG Extreme Tour was in January/February earlier this year

"TRANSLATED FROM FRENCH (Belgium Review):

MOORE, Vinnie - Aerial Visions / Published on 21-11-2015

Who does not know Mr. Vinnie Moore, the legendary guitarist of the legendary UFO group (hard rock band formed in 1969 in London), and who comes here to bring us the word of his six strings. Without further ado, we head towards the technical exercise that the musician offers us in the company of many names like Richie Monica (Poppa Chubby), Rob DeLuca (UFO, Sebastian Bach), Dave LaRue (Steve Morse), Dorian Heartsong (Jason Bonham) and Elliott Dean Rubinson (Uli John Roth, Michael Schenker).

Only great people for an album that should continue the great tradition of hard-rock and blues-rock, where the artist and his instrument of choice will we be lulled eardrums riffs and solos furious. For over fifty years, Vinnie Moore has obviously lost none of his aggressiveness, as it offers us the catchy compositions packed punch and groove. Pieces composed by the artist himself, except "La Grange" composed by Gibbons, Hill and Beard (ZZ Top).


It is on the bluesy chords, guitar turmoil that started in a tone decidedly hard and rock. All that swings from the outset with an instrument that is mastered by a master of the genre. Note also superb bass playing of passages where the four or five strings also pulls out of the game. Both heavy and bluesy, the work of the musician takes us through feelings in style moving between blues-rock, hard- rock and ballad.

Over the pieces we keep this atmosphere of hard-blues, where of course, the guitar is positioned above the fray to better take us at the mercy of aggressive and sharp riffs. Besides some passages are simply orgasmic, with an artist who takes us along the fretboard. Add to that a packaging in the form of a beautiful richly colored digipack, what do not hesitate fans of the musician as those in love with a beautiful instrumental work. If you like hard rock and blues, this album is for you!

The Orchard, a pioneering independent music, film and video distribution company, today announced its acquisition of rock/metal label Shrapnel Records’ historic catalog. Spanning 35 years and representing many groundbreaking artists, Shrapnel Records has maintained a pivotal role at the frontlines of metal history since its launch in 1980 by producer Mike Varney as the first dedicated metal label, predating successors Metal Blade and Megaforce and bringing renowned guitarists including Paul Gilbert, Vinnie Moore, Tony MacAlpine, Richie Kotzen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Jason Becker and Marty Friedman to worldwide attention.

 

The Orchard will now oversee digital and physical distribution for the label, making Shrapnel’s 3,000-song catalog available for streaming for the first time, including releases by Chris Duarte (Lucky 13), Paul Gilbert (Stone Pushing Uphill Man), and Indigenous (Time Is Coming). In addition, a third of the 322 album titles included in the deal will be made available digitally for the first time.

“The distribution landscape has changed dramatically in the last ten years, requiring greater staffing with expertise in digital distribution,” says Varney. “Although the Shrapnel Label Group will continue making new records, the expanded distribution and accompanying administration of the back catalog was something we felt could be best served by a larger company. As a pioneer in digital distribution with a tremendous track record of more than fifteen years, The Orchard was in a stronger position to effectively realize this for our catalog.”

Varney founded Shrapnel Records at just 22 years old. By then he was already a fixture on the San Francisco scene, having been a member of The Nuns — one of first punk bands in the United States — played guitar in the Rocky Sullivan Band with legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service guitarist, John Cipollina, and co-authored the Rock Opera “Rock Justice” (EMI Records) with Jefferson Starship vocalist, Marty Balin. He began a quest to find the next great American guitar player in the heavy metal genre, discovering many guitarists who would later rank among the best in the world. His popular monthly Guitar Player Magazine column, “Spotlight,” aided his search for new talent and he recruited the cream of the crop for his label, eventually expanding into a label group that included the blues/rock label Blues Bureau International and the jazz/fusion label, Tone Center.

“The Shrapnel Label Group was the first American label dedicated to metal and has pioneered the development of guitar-centric records,” says Jason Pascal, VP of Catalog Development and Associate General Counsel at The Orchard. “To get to work with a catalog of this size and scope is humbling and inspiring, and I couldn’t be happier that The Orchard will now serve as the steward for Shrapnel’s legacy.”

About The Orchard

The Orchard is a pioneering music, video and film distribution company and top-ranked Multi Channel Network operating in more than 25 global markets. With a holistic approach to sales and marketing combined with industry-leading technology and operations, The Orchard amplifies reach and revenue across hundreds of digital, physical and mobile outlets around the world.

TWO GREAT REVIEWS added to the AERIAL VISIONS Reviews Page

Vinnie Moore - The skirt is an expert on gas "Aerial Visions" (release date: 10/23/2015)

Blues Mike · November 14th, 2015
Vinnie Moore

Virtuoso guitar music has today really not easy to find buyers - the niche is steadily smaller. Since it is precisely select for buyers flock. So who is next Shredding also in search of song structure and melody, will find it quickly at Vinnie Moore. Vinnie is a veteran in the business, as always comes with a good sense of the correct notes and especially the right amount of notes in "Aerial Visions" to work.
The Vinman the composer

Gladly I remember back to how I was as a teenager in search of the secret of fast playing and me absparte in my "emergency" from the mouth of Vinnie Moore's instructional video "Speed, Accuracy And Articulation". Even then I captured his ultra-flowing game and I quickly realized that it was not about The Vinman speed records, but real songs! Many years have passed since then and the present album "Aerial Visions" Vinnie away entirely from the last few become neoclassical influences and tends to more tangible, Groove oriented rock.
The balancing act between UFO and Solo Project

Moore himself says that he can present multifaceted on his solo albums, as he the example could in his main band UFO. But be careful, these albums seem nevertheless exactly fast as a presentation show of handicraft arts. Vinnie Moore bypasses precisely this risk quite well on his latest output.
The skirt Express accelerates

The opener "Mustang Shuffle" welcomes us with a Texas Blues moderate intro. Smoky rough rocks the Dean Strat that it is a joy to listen to as this Express gets the ball rolling. The Mustang Shuffle is a cool track with good grooves and rhythms. Keyboards are here nil and that gives the album a little more rock attitude - a good thing! On the neck pickup Vinnie fires going and skillfully leads us with a recurring OpenString Lick to the chorus. The major arpeggios remain in the memory and not only this song has a real song structure. After the breakdown it comes to solo and here is burning from Vinnie Moore super clean legato runs. One of its distinctive hallmarks, namely the skillful plucking Pedaltone Licks should not be missed and welcomes us to the end of the solo.

The second number "Now's The Time" is strongly reminiscent Lockenkopf Blues Saraceno. Wide plugged Mixolydian arpeggios form the basis of the melody and the Main Reef could smooth out the Alice In Chains Wrought come - but with a positive attitude. Tapped arpeggios on the bass strings, an open chorus and finely metered drones Licks with open sounding strings round everthing up. It is noticeable that the Vinman preferably with "only" angerocktem sound goes to work and spared us from synthetic-sounding modulation sounds - that's cool! The musicians Rich Monica (dr) and Dave La Rue (b) to introduce yourself to this piece, as on the whole album, also in top form.

Moores guitar sounds completely transparent and woody, and provides us with a great blue line to the next.
Old strengths

On "Faith" we hear for the first time the old Vinnie Moore. It builds on a strong melody, which he embellishes with nice bends. Skillfully he takes time for the song structure and pursued a sort folkloric-sounding approach. The few notes give the piece to breathe. Go Solo comes surprisingly an absolutely rhythmic Kopfnicker. The solo itself is phrased interesting and then leads us back to the theme song.
Funky Wild Blow

"Slam" is a real spark fireworks and the middle part reminds one strongly of Extremes "Get The Funk Out". Built Rhythmic class and of course rocked to the point. The song quickly develops into a small round Umschau so slides Moore after the refrain in Phaser soaked Funkspiel from that shines with percussive attack.
This Cover earned "only" a mustache!

With the cover of ZZ Tops "La Grange" Moore enters into big shoes to fill. The Wah Wah Pedal in the heel position playing forwards Vinnie after the universally known intro the song a, while the guitar sounds like a distorted blues harp. It follows harmonious Slide game - at Moore but it could also well be that he somehow simulates the slide with the whammy bar, à la Michael Lee Firkins. This cover has certainly up to half of potential and sprayed dust and dirt, then however much will solos and the song loses a little reference to the original and derailed the guitar wizard Zunehmens - for "long beard" of the models it is not enough here unfortunately, but at least it is a handsome mustache.

As usual, the exceptional guitarist plays by the total of 10 pieces and leaves repeatedly striking parts that you like again "rewinds" and listening to several times.
The grand finale

The final track is introduced slowly and audibly. The typical ingredients for such a number be commanded us here as an interested listener, of course. By giving Deten Double Stops Vinnie goes into pithy solo and provides us with a lot of variety. Beautiful is here that the acoustic accompaniment will remain as a backing and also with dynamic animated strumming the song. The dramaturgy of the piece is really well laid out. It alternate punchy Parts with catchy melodies from acoustic and electric guitar and play parts of the passages in unison. By far the most compositionally strongest number, which then, just when you think was at an end, again tremendous gains momentum and everyone invites himself for the finale riot again and give gas without handbrake - here saves us only the fadeout.
In the jungle of the shredder a rock singer would be appropriate

Of course, the old master can not splash out and presented with his self-produced "Aerial Visions" a technically flawless album. However, the feeling you will not get rid of that Vinnie Moore just in the last third of the album riffs conjures up a myriad of creamiest that cry out for a real rock voice. The air in the guitar Olymp is thin and there are currently growing many Shredder zoom enliven the scene with new impulses. Moore presented here, although his talent as a composer and underlines once more insistently that he has internalized the influences away from the shreds and Gitarrentums, but would certainly do the songs "fresh wind" good. So this acts Ouput every little bit dusty, but still constitutes a valuable addition in the domestic collection.

Vinnie Moore – Aerial Visions

Instrumental rock music composer and virtuoso guitarist Vinnie Moore is back fresh with a new album in the form of “Aerial Visions”, which is sure to rock the earth with its catchy execution and style.

There are ten superbly crafted and presented rock instrumentals that make “Aerial Visions” an ambitious album, especially the awesome cover of ZZ Top’s La Grange, which smokes the original. The power of the riffs and rhythms here definitely gives “La Grange” an added kick in the ass, and this aspect is what makes this cover so out of this world. Hell, there are no vocals on it, but Moore’s playing certainly makes up for that void.

“Slam’s” got a nice drum and bass groove to it, topped-off by Vinnie’s intricately woven and melodic leads and riffs alike. When you feel the positive vibes on this track, it’s sure to lift you up emotionally especially after you’ve had a tough day at work. This is definitely one of my favorites to chill and relax to, maybe even bang my head to and let loose. The melodic licks and catchy grooves just don’t let up on this one, so don’t be surprise if this one hypnotizes you too.

The album is produced by Vinnie Moore and mixed by record producer Paul Northfield (Queensryche, Suicidal Tendencies, Danger Danger, Rush, Dream Theater), so with a very comprehensive resume like this one, you know the mix on “Aerial Visions” is tastefully accomplished with so much emotion and power present in Moore’s playing.

The title track “Aerial Visions” displays interestingly composed and played riffs that’ll totally catch you off guard. This song is just jam-packed with emotionally driven playing along with the melodic guitar harmonies, we’ve come to expect from Vinnie over the years.

“The Dark Dream” is another fine tune with its off the wall riffing and unique tempo changes, which follow every one of the changes Vinnie has in his playing, so the drumming has got its own character and rich style. This song almost put me to sleep towards the end, with it’s tripped out, digital delay infused closing, whoa…

Furthermore, Vinnie is also a part of UFO, and his playing is definitely suited more for UPO’s style of rock with them, but you can tell from the guitar’s tone and style, it is all Vinnie blazing on the leads and riffs on there as well. However, I am more interested in Moore’s playing as it got rhythm, soul, some traces of shred guitar, occasional jazz and blues, which certainly gives his music even more added depth and spice. Overall, the bass guitars and drumming sound tight and give the guitars a lot of space to breathe without sounding contrived. People, it does not get any natural sounding when it comes down to instrumental rock music, as Vinnie Moore is the master of creating this natural reality with his playing. Highly recommended for fans of Steve Vai, Tony MacAlpine, Joe Satriani and Tim Pierce. Mind’s Eye Music     Sarjoo Devani

16th October 2015

AERIAL VISIONS - We start today with a Great review: 4.5/5 STARS

Moore, Vinnie: Aerial Visions

Much like Steve Morse in Deep Purple, Vinnie Moore is now the longest tenured guitarist in UFO history, something that kind of just snuck up on us but the truth is he is soon to celebrate his 12th year with the British hard rock legends, working on five studio albums with the band and countless tours. Amid that hectic schedule, he's managed to record an album with his Red Zone Rider band, as well as put the final touches on his 8th solo album Aerial Visions. Containing moments of all out shred as well as the bluesy hard rock he's perfected in UFO, Aerial Visions is further proof of just how far Moore has come over the years since he exploded on the scene in the 80s with those neo-classical metal albums for Shrapnel.

If you are going to release a guitar based instrumental album these days, it's imperative that you mix up the styles on it, and Moore has indeed done just that here. "Mustang Shuffle" shows his knack for blistering blues rock, as does his KILLER rendition of ZZ Top's "La Grange", which, quite frankly, is one of the most incredible cover songs I've heard in some time. UFO fans will probably recognize the riffs & melodies of both "Now's the Time" and "Faith", two songs that originally were intended as instrumentals but some of the arrangements were later used as UFO tunes, now included here in their original vision. "Looking Back" is a tender ballad with tasty picking, while the title track is a rootsy blues/jazz/funk gem featuring the stellar bass skills of Dave LaRue firing off alongside Moore, who also shows up on the raucous "Slam". "The Dark Dream" hints at majestic prog-metal with its shimmering acoustic guitar, heavy riffs, and dark atmosphere, and "A Million Miles Gone" takes that moody atmosphere even further, allowing Moore to launch into a jaw dropping solo dripping with emotion, taste, and supreme chops.

Originally praised for his acrobatic, shredding style, Vinnie Moore has quietly become an incredibly well rounded player who can tackle any style and amaze every step of the way. He does it all here on Aerial Visions, a great complement to his recent work with UFO and Red Zone Rider, and one of 2015s most impressive guitar based instrumental albums.

UFO GUITAR LEGEND VINNIE MOORE TO RELEASE NEW CD “AERIAL VISIONS” ON OCTOBER 23RD

The long awaited new album from legendary guitarist Vinnie Moore, will be released on October 23rd on Mind’s Eye Music. Titled Aerial Visions, Vinnie’s eighth solo album features drummer Richie Monica (Tantric, Poppa Chubby), and bassists Dave LaRue (Steve Morse Band, Flying Colors, The Dregs), Rob DeLuca (UFO, Sebastian Bach), Dorian Heartsong (Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience) and Elliott Dean Rubinson (Uli Jon Roth, MSG).

“Everything that Moore throws himself into features his astounding 6-string abilities. Far from being a ‘mere shredder’, Moore combines insane technique with touch, taste, and stylistic influences that include Van Halen, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Larry Carlton, and many other diverse talents. He can play sweep-picked arpeggios with a bluesy feel or play blues licks at neo-classical speeds, never sacrificing tone, time,or intonation. It’s a unique and musical skill set.” – Matt Blackett, Guitar Player Magazine

Vinnie has released seven critically acclaimed solo albums; five albums and one DVD as a member of rock royalty legends UFO; and one album with band Red Zone Rider. His solo and UFO releases as well as LIVE performances have amassed rave reviews all around the globe from both fans and music press, inspiring guitarists worldwide and launching him into aerial guitar superhero distinction!

Says Vinnie, “I have been touring all over the world pretty nonstop for the past 12 years. I started this record about two years ago and have been working on it while at home. I’m totally jacked up about getting it out there for others to hear as well as playing these songs LIVE. Two of the songs on Aerial were written as instrumentals but were included on a UFO record with vocals. I have also done a cover of ZZ Top’s La Grange which I have always thought is one of the coolest songs ever. I have done ZZ covers onstage a lot.”

Vinnie has toured several times all over Europe, UK, Scandanvia, Brazil, and the USA, as well as performing in India, Korea, Mexico, Russia, and Canada. The UFO A Conspiracy of Stars tour will continue in Europe on October 21st, and will include nine shows in December as opening act for Judas Priest on their Redeemer of Souls tour.

Says Vinnie, “With my solo records I can cover a lot more territory stylistically. I enjoy this freedom to be able to follow my muse wherever it leads. All of my influences are in there, from Rock to Blues to Be-Bop to Funk. I am into so many different styles of music that I can’t help myself, I’m basically a slave to it all and so there are inspirations from everywhere. Having said that, being a songwriter is the most important thing to me. I try to use my inspiration to create a mood and take the listener on a little journey to wherever.”

TRANSLATION:

Moore is one of the best guitarists nowadays and played, before he joined UFO, with various musicians such as Alice Cooper.

This album is again a solo project where he proves once more what is possible
as a guitarist who has total control over his instrument. This new album is
also the prelude to a new UFO tour.

Moore is born in 1964. In the age of 12 he started making music and founded his first band in the age of 15. Soon a deal with Pepsi followed and his carrier
kick started with his debut album Minds Eye in 1986.

Moore became popular as a guest musician, that's why big time artists such as Alice Cooper or even Deep Purple asked him to help out.
And since he realized that his guitar playing became popular, he decided to release 2 guitar lesson videos.

Since 2003 he is a permanent member of the hardrock group UFO. He replaced Michael Schenker, who left the band.

Moore's guitar playing is impressive. He shows how diverse he is. It spans from melodic, sensitive songs to real hardrock music.

In particular "A Million Miles Gone" proves that rockers can play calm songs. With this, one has always the feeling that a motorbike runs at low revs and kicks off any moment.

This album will thrill all fans of well done handmade rock music. To describe this album in a nutshell: superb and absolutely diverse.

• Release date: 23rd October 2015
• Label: Mind's Eye Music

Vinnie to guest on the new Lizard's album

The long awaited new album from Classic Rock legends The Lizards, featuring members of Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Cactus and Riot, will be released on September 1st 2015 on Hyperspace Records in partnership with drumming legend Carmine Appice's Rocker Records.

Titled “Reptilicus Maximus”, the band's 7th album features guest appearances by Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush) and Vinnie Moore (UFO)! Once again the breathtaking cover artwork was created by longtime Lizards artist Rick Klemann.

The Lizards are drummer Bobby Rondinelli (Rainbow/Black Sabbath/BOC), vocalist/keyboardist Mike DiMeo (Riot/Masterplan), bassist Randy Pratt (who also plays harp with Cactus) and guitarist Patrick Klein (who recorded and mixed the album), and have released seven critically acclaimed albums and three live DVDs in the past 13 years. The band's 2006 release “Against All Odds”, and their covers album from 2009 “Archeology”, garnered rave reviews from fans and music press alike worldwide, catapulting The Lizards into legendary status!

“Loved hearing The Lizards when they opened for UFO. Cool riffs, grooves and musicality with Mike DiMeo's killer vocals on top. Awesome new record and I am glad to be a part of it” - Vinnie Moore, UFO

Says bassist and band leader Randy Pratt: “On our 7th CD, "Reptilicus Maximus", we brought in a few of our touring buddies. David Lanik, of 'Sharks' kicks ass on "Ton on the One", the opening track on the CD. Frank Marino, of Mahogany Rush, was the headliner on our first tour and dazzles on "Evil Eyes", the second track. Vinnie Moore and UFO were the headliners on our LAST tour (so far). Vinnie shreds beautifully on "Crash", a song I wrote the lyrics to in the hospital after my brutal car crash that sidelined us for awhile. We did a 2 month tour with Glenn Hughes and he came to New York to record 4 songs on our 6th CD, "Against All Odds". "Miracle Man" is a song that he wrote specifically for The Lizards, and I believe we slay it. He and Mike DiMeo do another one of their over the top duets on the closing number on the record. We added Scott 'The Doctor' Treibitz on keys for this CD, adding some new textures, from dark and brooding synths and majestic pipe organ to honky tonk piano and funky hammond organ”.

“Having toured with The Lizards and getting to know the band personally, I was delighted when Randy asked me to play on a track with them.  And even if I hadn't gotten to know what a great bunch of guys they are, I still would have accepted the invitation gladly, because I just loved the track and the music they make. With me it's always been about heart, and these cats bring it... straight from the heart” - Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush)

Says Randy: “The music runs from progressive rock to swampy blues, lyrics ranging from the sacred to the profane... all in the name of ROCK. Bobby Rondinelli told us that we got some of the best playing of his career on this record. Since he played with Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult, you can believe the drums are world class throughout!”...

01. Ton on the One

REVIEW: NIGHT OF THE SHRED GUITAR MASTERS Mexico

TRANSLATED REVIEW from Spanish into English:

It will always be a wonder that artists like Vinnie Moore (who has been in the music industry for decades playing with bands like UFO, Alice Cooper and Destruction), visit our country and if accompanied by Dave Reffett and our known Tonio Ruiz.

On August 2 took place in the Masters Shred Guitar Rock Historical Center are and this is what happened.

The night began with the participation of Outsider, a band that has gained more fans day day and that this time would interpret different covers and "liven up the evening" according to the wise words of vocalist.

Immediately he gave way to a stunning girl named Annie Shred, where experience and study that has invested in its instrument, since it executed masterly solos everywhere noticed, but more important is that you put your style their songs.

With the passage of minutes it looked as changing speed. It goes faster, then slower, increase your speed again and so constantly, also using some combination of electronic music, leaving all very surprised and with great taste. (His outstanding track is "Vitalogy").

It was the turn of Dave Reffett who by constant visits to our country with different artists, has won precisely a lot of followers. His way of playing is unique, full of art, with many ideas and originality; plays tracks and plays various songs solo Ozzy Osbourne and Pantera, as well as original pieces created for their album The Call Of The Flames, sounding incredibly with great audio.

Dave really touches all possible notes on the guitar because of its different harmonies, he runs his hand from one side to another without problems. It is always nice to see him in action and is much appreciated his passion.

The night went on and it was time to Tonio Ruiz, who is one of the legends of rock in Mexico thanks to its experience in Coda and QBO. Although these bands sound away from the metal, he has always said that this genre is your thing and that has led to collaborations with bands or recording personal material.

He started his involvement with pretty heavy riffs, letting us know his instrumental solo album which is called To Hell And Back, which songs, "Dreams" and "Carry On," both good and powerful enough emerge. The level at which touch and easy to carry alone left everyone surprised.

The special moment of the evening came to a crowded room. The surprising Vinnie Moore took the stage and immediately caught fire due to the intensity that showed he began his concert with perfect audio, and a positive attitude that infected everyone.

He took his guitar and began the symphony of his melodies, printing great feeling to each chord and receiving enough support from the audience, who witnessed the virtuosity of Vinnie at its finest and being so astonished expression of skill and technique. In his repertoire, the best thing we saw was "Ridin' High", "Daydream", "Midnight Rain" and "Meltdown".

Surprises in a special night of Shred Guitar Masters never stopped since Vinnnie was inviting all his friends "Shreders" to make a Jam. Outsider first rose, then Dave, Annie and Tonio followed in order to complete the full band and some songs coverear UFO, Led Zeppelin and Jimmy Hendrix.

No doubt the August 2 a dream come true to see them all together and having fun running with all the fans he lived.

Win two guitar pedals signed by UFO’s guitarist Vinnie Moore

Win two guitar pedals signed by UFO’s guitarist Vinnie Moore

VM Interview

 

VINNIE MOORE INTERVIEW

Interviewed by Mark Dean (Journalist/Writer/Contributor) Myglobalmind Webzine

One benefit that working for an International Website like Myglobalmind can bring is that doors are opened that other smaller media outlets cannot obtain. So it was when legendary British rock band UFO rolled into Belfast on their Conspiracy of Stars tour. We were fortunate enough to be granted the only after show interview that the band did in the city. I sat down with guitarist Vinnie Moore to discuss a variety of topics from music to cooking…

MGM”Okay then Vinnie as a young rock fan from growing up in America what was your first introduction to the music of UFO was the band big in America?

Vinnie “Yes they were pretty big in America had a few of their   records when I was a kid. The Lights Out record,”Obsession and “Force It” and I grew up on those records. “Strangers in the night” had a couple of friends and we were all into rock and guitar orientated stuff. That was one of the bands that we were definitely in to".

Mgm” How did you feel when you actually had the opportunity to go and actually join the band? 

Vinnie “It was kind of surreal when I was a kid in my bedroom playing along with the records and stuff I would never have imagined that there would have been a chance that I would  play be playing with them someday. When it happened it was kind of surreal for me”

Mgm”Looking back at your musical career what would you say what was your proudest moment

TONIGHT: Londonderry, NH - Tupelo Music Hall

 

 

Vinnie Moore has always been a hard-working and passionate musician. During the mid 80s, Moore was regarded as one of rock music's most innovative guitarists; with his lightning fast fret board skills and melodic riffs. He released several impressive instrumental solo records during that time period on the guitar shredder-oriented label, Shrapnel Records.  In 1991, Vinnie Moore released his break-out 'Meltdown' album, as the title track became a critically acclaimed masterpiece, getting huge radio play and being one of the very few instrumentals, to not only have a music video shown on MTV, but to be put in heavy rotation on the fan favorite show, "The Head Bangers Ball."  

 After a short stint as part of Alice Cooper's touring band in the early 90's, in 2003, vocalist Phil Mogg of the classic rock band, UFO, offered Moore the position of lead guitarist when he was looking to continue UFO, and needed a guitarist to replace the legendary Michael Schenker.  Mogg ultimately decided that Moore would be the best fit for the band. It was a dream come true for Moore; he was a big fan of the band since childhood.  

Presently, Moore is working harder now than ever before. The 50-year-old guitar virtuoso is currently co-headlining the ‘XG Extreme Guitar tour,’ with ex-Scorpions guitarist, Uli Roth, and the Black Knights Rising, which is a band consisting of Craig Goldy, Vinny Appice, Elliott Rubinson, and John West.

Moore is also involved with an amazing power trio, Red Zone Riders. This band consists of veteran musicians Kelly Keeling on vocals/bass and Scot Coogan on drums. They released their debut record last year and plan on doing some touring this year.

In addition, UFO will be releasing a new CD entitled, 'A Conspiracy Of Stars,' which is the fifth studio record that Moore is doing with the band. UFO will also be kicking off a world tour on Feb 20th.

What follows is an exclusive RMS interview with Vinnie Moore.

The Paramour Group and JAAB Productions Provide Update on
2015 XG Extreme Guitar Tour

The Paramour Group and JAAB Productions present the 2015!  The XG Tour includes performances by guitar greats Uli Jon Roth, Vinnie Moore, Craig Goldy and introduces the new band Black Knights Risin.  The tour is sponsored by Dean Guitar and dDrum.

As a special treat for fans attending the show on January 31st in St. Charles, IL legendary front man Joe Lynn Turner has been added as a special guest.  Known for his exceptional lead vocal performances with Deep Purple, Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen, Turner will rock St. Charles alongside some of the best guitarists in the world!

Due to popular demand, additional shows have been added to the upcoming tour and another week of dates scheduled for February 10th through February 15th.  These dates will be announced next week.  FOR THESE DATES ONLY, Black Knights Rising will see a bit of a lineup change with Bobby Rondinelli taking over on the drums and Tim Ripper Owens on vocals.

In addition to the tour, Uli Jon Roth has announced that he will be conducting a Sky Academy Guitar Seminar on February 1st in Chicago, IL @ Reggie’s Rock Club.  This will be the only Sky Academy Seminar on the tour and tickets can be purchased HERE.

The aim of Sky Academy hosted by Uli Jon Roth is to provide knowledge and inspiration to those who take guitar playing seriously and to help them reach a new plateau. The seminars are designed to open musicians’ eyes to new possibilities and to trigger an awakening of the student’s full potential and talent.


Conceived in the summer of 2013 by JAAB Productions, it debuted in January of 2014 during NAMM week with a mini tour of five shows along the West Coast of California. These shows featured multiple artists performing on stage together, often with four & five guitarists jamming with dueling drummers.

The original concept started five years earlier when producer Andrew Banks paired guitarists of notoriety with Kofi Baker to play extended jam versions of Cream songs under the title of Extreme Cream. Guitarists that have played these shows, often lasting two & a half hours in length, include Mike Keneally, Uli Jon Roth, Gary Hoey, Michael Angelo Batio & Roy Z.

This two plus hour, multi drum kit & layered guitarist approach was perfected in early 2014 when Tour / Production Manager Jeff Agins took the concept on the road for five dates along the west coast. The response was VERY well received & requests poured in to take the XG Tour on the road across the US.

Canadian rockers Old James will be opening every show.

Drumming for Uli Jon Roth will be Kofi Baker, son of CREAM drummer Ginger Baker.

Elliot Rubinson, CEO of Dean Guitars will be featured on bass during the performances of all three guitarists.

Black Knights Rising are: Craig Goldy - guitar, Vinnie Appice – drums, Mark Boals – vocals, Allesandro Bertoni - keyboards and Elliot Rubinson – bass.

The fans have spoken & after several months of production, the first National XG Tour 2015 has become a reality!
