Vinnie Moore - The Man Behind The Strings

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 OperaVan Halen’s self-titled album and many other bands; all of them were among his early influences...

Vinnie Moore Official Facebook posting

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!!

From one Alice Cooper Guitarist to a former player, Vinnie Moore cited as an influence

Nita Strauss' - 5 Essential Guitar Albums

Alice Cooper axe heroine Nita Strauss picks five albums that
inspired her own guitar freakery

Vinnie Moore - Meltdown (1991)

“Yes, the UFO guy. Most people know him because he is a member of that band. But what they are not aware of his body of solo albums. But when you listen to Meltdown, you discover a different side to the man. He is a fine writer, and comes up with great riffs as well. What you can tell from listening to this record is that Vinnie Moore feels everything he plays, and has the ability to make it mean something to you. That's a special talent. All the tracks come across with as being delivered with the vibe of someone who is a genuine songwriter. As you can tell, I am a big fan of his.”

The other four albums:

Steve Vai - Passion And Warfare (1990)

Jason Becker - Perpetual Burn (1988)

Shawn Lane - Powers Of Ten (1992)

ALBUM REVIEW -AERIAL VISIONS by

Altered Frequencies

Vinnie Moore was born in New Castle, Delaware, and he began his professional career at age 12 playing in clubs and bars until Shrapnel executive Mike Varney discovered him via a demo and bio that Vinnie submitted to the Spotlight column, which Varney headed for Guitar Player Magazine. Through Varney, it led to an opportunity to appear in a Pepsi commercial in 1985, (only Vinnie’s hands appeared in the commercial as his guitar playing is heard. Following this, Moore recorded his first solo album, Mind’s Eye (1986), released on Shrapnel Records. Vinnie Moore played lead guitar with Vicious Rumors on their debut album, Soldiers of the Night (1985). Moore joined Alice Cooper’s band for a tour and then appeared on the Hey Stoopid (1991) album. Moore has been the lead guitarist for UFO since June 2003, and this is his eighth solo album.

This album strikes right to the core of what Moore’s fans have always loved about his playing, guitar-centric music with plenty of melody. Each song is beautifully crafted and his technique is never at the expense of taste, and this album has a delicious flavor. The playing is tight, but not so flashy that the casual listener gets bogged down in flair and flash, instead you get an album full of songs with terrific guitar playing that draws you in and won’t let go. If you’re going to release a guitar based instrumental album these days, since it’s not really in style anymore, it’s imperative that you mix up the styles on it, and Moore has indeed done just that here. “Mustang Shuffle” is blistering blues rock, and his version of ZZ Top’s “La Grange”, which would make them proud. “Now’s the Time” and “Faith” are two songs that originally were intended as instrumentals, but some of the arrangements were later used as UFO tunes. “Looking Back” is a tender ballad, while the title track has a rootsy blues/jazz/funk sound. “A Million Miles Gone” has a moody atmosphere, with Moore playing a jaw dropping solo that is dripping with emotion.

If you want an album of guitar wankery, this is not it, there were plenty released in the 80s (Yngwie Malmsteen anyone?), this one has the ability to go beyond that into an album that is a classic. The playing is on point, the song selection is terrific and everything just clicks.

This posted in the mylespaul forum

A few years ago on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise I asked George Lynch what it was like being the best guitarist on the ship, he said "I don't know, ask Vinnie Moore". At the time I didnt know who Vinnie was, he was on the ship playing with UFO who I wasnt too into, but after I watched them play a set I was like "Damn, old George was right"

GuitarPlayer feature - 21st April - Artist's reveal 'Show-off' songs of their early guitar days:

VINNIE MOORE, UFO
“Believe it or not, one of the songs I used to rip over in my very first band, Masque, was Neil Young’s ‘Hurricane.’ I don’t remember how we started playing it. I think the band just fell into it one day. It had the Am-G-F-E chord changes repeating over and over, and I would just solo—for too long! It was one of the coolest songs to play live, because it gave me these long solos—at least two long solos—over that nice minor-key progression.”

Vinnie Moore - Special Guest on The Ray Shasho Show

Broadcasting Date: Monday, 11th January 2016 - 3pm

VINNIE MOORE
Guest Occupation: Guitar Virtuoso and Songwriter
uest Biography: The Ray Shasho Show Welcomes Guitar Virtuoso Vinnie Moore

The long awaited new album from legendary guitarist Vinnie Moore has been released on Mind's Eye Music. Titled “Aerial Visions”, Vinnie's 8th 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!

Moore also joined Alice Cooper's band for a tour and then appeared on the Hey Stoopid (1991) album.

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 21, 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.”

AERIAL VISIONS ALBUM REVIEW

Vinnie Moore - Aerial Visions (CD, Mind's Eye Music, Rock/instrumental)
The eighth full-length solo album from Vinnie Moore, best known as a member of the legendary rock band UFO.

Lending their support on this album are Richie Monica, Dave LaRue, Rob DeLuca, Dorian Heartsong, and Elliott Dean Robinson.

Hard to believe in 2015, but at one point in time it seemed like guitar gods ruled the musical landscapes of the world. Yup, the faster your fingers could fly up and down the frets and the louder you played the more fans you once had. But even though guitar gods now seem to be in much less demand...that's not stopping Moore and his pals from delivering some riveting rockin' music for those diehard fans who still dig guitars.

Spin Aerial Visions a time or two and you'll see why Vinnie has become such a legend over the years. This guy is not only good, he's also lightning fast and precise. Ten kickass tracks here including a blistering version of ZZ Topp's "La Grange." This stuff zips and rips...NEAT.
