Vinnie Moore: featured in anitmusic interview

Vinnie Moore gets 13 mentions in this interview with the UFO drummer.

Well, I noticed something very interesting over the last two records. Especially after The Monkey Puzzle, I thought it was so bluesy and that there was such a blues influence that was coming through. And there was a lot of that in the band when we first came together in the late '60s. And Phil was always a big blues fan; Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker and Howlin' Wolf and these guys. I know that was a big part of his early music influences and mine too.

And I thought it was interesting because you take Vinnie Moore out of UFO as a solo artist and he's such an amazing guitarist, quite a shredder and amazing technique. And you put him in UFO and the chemistry kind of changes and this bluesy side kind of comes out. You wouldn't expect that with Vinnie Moore but it does. And I love that. I love the direction we're headed in and am quite happy with it.
