Vinnie Moore: 8th solo album due October 23rd 2015

NYC - The long awaited new album from legendary guitarist Vinnie Moore, will be released on October 23 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!

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.

“Eyes closed in concentration, his fingers dancing, he solos like a man possessed. Ritchie Blackmore used to be like this. Vinnie is that good!” – Neil Jeffries, Classic Rock Magazine, England

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.”

Then Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin, Germany with Ruokangas Guitars. November the Asian tour with Hughes & Kettner, demoing TriAmp mark III and Tubemeister amps. Going back to Japan is a dream come true. I love everything Japanese and the whole atmosphere there. Then Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, never been to these places, lookind forward. Overly excited, so much playing ahead, what a priviledge!

Brett Kingman: Japanese J Mascis Jazzmaster Anti-Demo - we need more anti demos!


This odd little outing has a background story. I came by this rather cool and rare-ish Japanese J Mascis Jazzmaster last week. I'm told it's rare because it has an alder body and most of the export models were basswood.

At the same time a buddy sent me a hat and T-shirt from Lucifer's Death Squad - a Facebook page dedicated to mostly pre 80's skating, hot rods, bmx, choppers, dragsters and other cool stuff. Ed Roth would have loved it. LDS is most definitely not an occult group although I did add some background musings from Aleister Crowley for my own amusement.

I was fooling around with a preset I'd been writing in the Axe-FX II, full of fuzz, delays, reverse reverbs, etc., which I've now called Lucifer's Death Squad. I'll post the link here a bit later on today for anyone interested in giving it a go.

Today's tools:

Guitar: 2011 Fender Japan J Mascis Jazzmaster (stock).
Amp: Fractal Audio Axe-FX II Quantum 1.01 Carol Ann Triptik.
Extra effects: Tons: Big Muff Pi, Space Reverbs, Flanger, Compressor, Reverse Delay, Megatap Delay...
Cables: Providence
Power Supply: N/A
Mic: N/A
Camera: Canon 60D and GoPro White
Soundcard: Fractal Audio System Axe-FX II
Computer: Apple iMac 27" i7 3.4 GHz 16 GB RAM
Software: Pro Tools 11.3, Waves CLA Guitars (slight comp over input track), Waves L3-16 Limiter (to keep levels in check at output), Apple Final Cut Pro X (video editing and Youtube compression).

Japanese J Mascis Jazzmaster Anti-Demo (for LDS).
