UFO Guitarist VINNIE MOORE Begins Recording New Solo Album

September 27, 2006

UFO guitarist Vinnie Moore is scheduled to begin recording his new solo album in New York City today (Wednesday, Sept. 27). Laying down drums on the CD is Van Romaine, who has previously played with such artists as BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS, KANSAS, JOAN OSBORNE, BILLY JOEL and STEVE MORSE. Engineering duties are being handled by Tim Conklin.

UFO's new album, "The Monkey Puzzle", came out yesterday (Sept. 26) via SPV Records. The follow-up to 2004's "You Are Here" was recorded at Area 51 Studios with producer Tommy Newton, who also worked with the band on their last CD and who recorded the material for the band's "Showtime" live album.

The original members, Phil Mogg (vocals),Pete Way (bass),Paul Raymond (guitar, keyboards) and recently returned drummer Andy Parker, are scheduled to start their extensive world tour in October 2006. Parker was part of the UFO lineup that performed the group's debut show in the late Sixties and has returned to replace Jason Bonham, who left to join FOREIGNER. Also on board is Moore, who has been part of the permanent lineup since the last studio album, "You Are Here".

UFO's "Showtime" live CD/DVD was recorded at Pumpwerk in Wilhelmshaven, Germany on May 13, 2005.
