"MUSIC FROM ANOTHER GALAXY"
Despite having gone through different stages, sweet moments, bitter moments, the British band is still active and now is a great time both compositional and shows his latest Lp. study "Seven Deadly", which has been submitted weeks ago live in our country with a very good staging.
Interview published in issue No. 124 of FORCE Magazine
Vinnie, first of all, thank you for this interview to be brief because you are about to leave almost immediately and congratulations on the concert you have just to offer here in Madrid.
Vinnie Moore Interview from 11th May edition of the San Paulo Newspaper:
UFO guitarist Vinnie Moore returns to Brazil after three years
The band UFO is back to Brazil to make four presentations across the country. The musicians will perform in Rio in Goiania, Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre.
The group comes to the country publicize his latest work, "Seven Deadly". The guitarist Vinnie Moore will also solo performances, the main one being in Sao Paulo, next May 23.
Moore is said surprised with the quality of Brazilian musicians and praised drummer Aquiles Priester (Hangar) who will perform in the state capital.
Currently formed, and Moore, Phil Mogg (vocals), Paul Raymond (guitar, keyboards), and Andy Parker (drums), the UFO has over 40 years of career and should play classics like "Doctor, Doctor", range customarily presented before the Iron Maiden concerts worldwide.
Interview with Vinnie Moore:
Leaf - The UFO comes to Brazil to promote his latest work, "Seven Deadly", 2012. For you, what is the main difference between the new album and the others already recorded by the group?
The UFO has over 40 years of road and many "hits". For you, how important band in the history of rock and metal?
Before you, the UFO had already influential guitarists as Michael Schenker, Paul Chapman and many other great musicians. How do you see its predecessors?
And how is your relationship with guitarist Michael Schenker?
The UFO was born the same time as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple, but did not become commercially equal to great bands mentioned. Why?
You did solo tours in various places in the world with local bands and musicians. How do you select these musicians?
In Brazil, in addition to shows with UFO you will do a small solo tour with Brazilian musicians. How is playing with musicians from Brazil?
What is the main difference between musicians from Latin America, Europe and the United States?
Do you believe that in the years 1980 and 1990 instrumental music was more expressive than today?
Vinnie Moore Video Interview in Bordeaux, France + Live performaces of Wonderland & Shoot Shoot
Interview by Juliana Rosano - ENGLISH Translation
Vinnie Moore belongs to the same school of the great guitarists of the 80's and was one of the pioneers of the style shredding. He became known to the general public due to a Pepsi commercial, which led him to release his first album, Mind's Eye in 1986 and work with Alice Cooper Hey Stoopid disk. Vinnie was also one of the first guitarists to devote himself to teaching this instrument, with its video-classes of 1987 and 1989, classics of the genre. Currently, Vinnie is divided between his solo career and his work with the English band UFO. After the UFO show in Madrid last March 8th, we had the opportunity to chat briefly, but humorous, in exclusive for Hard and Heavy.
HARD AND HEAVY: Thank you, Vinnie, a pleasure talking to you and to the readers of Hard and Heavy Brazil.
VINNIE MOORE: Brazil? São Paulo?
HH: Yes! São Paulo, extamente!
VINNIE MOORE: Oh, thank you, I know more things in Portuguese, but I will not say here. (Risas)
HH: The tour started a little while ago, Feb. 21, what has been the reception from the public?
VINNIE MOORE: So far, all the shows have been in England, except for tonight here in Madrid and in France yesterday. And it has been very good, we always do very well in England, and these shows were awesome for us in Europe and so far has also been good.
HH: What are your expectations for the rest of the tour?
VINNIE MOORE: Which is better and that we continue to have fun and see lots of fans, all fans possible.
HH: You came to Brazil for the first time only five years ago to give some clinics. What memories do you have from a trip to Brazil?
VINNIE MOORE: I remember the "steakhouse", is that what they say? The Brazilian barbecue, beautiful girls and the fans, of course, very enthusiastic fans.
HH: Is there a Brazilian musician you like, guitarist or not?
VINNIE MOORE: You know, when I was there, I had been giving clinics and other guitarists opening for me and there are so many great guitarists in Brazil, unbelievable. There was this guy who opened one of my clinics, I am sorry, but I do not remember his name, but it was impressive. But overall there are excellent guitarists in Brazil.
HH: Are you in the UFO 10 years ago. Have you ever thought you'd stay so long in the group?
VINNIE MOORE: You know, I never thought about it when I joined the group. I think if you had asked me this before, maybe I would last 10 years, I probably would have said that you might not. But, we are continuously making new albums and touring and more touring and other records and more and it's been great. I really like all the guys in the band and the music we're doing and of course, play live.
HH: How do you balance your work with your UFO and solo career?
VINNIE MOORE: Uhh, no time for both. I just choose the right moment. When I'm making a break with UFO, I work on my own music. I have some new songs I'm recording, all batteries are already finished, I'm just working on guitars and hope to launch it in a few months.
HH: That was exactly what I was going to ask you now.... READ FULL INTERVIEW
