About Vinnie Moore
Once Vinnie Moore picked up his first guitar (a Kay) at the age of 12, he became, as he describes it, a guitar freak.
His earliest influences included - among others - Jeff Beck, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Queen.
Several years later, Vinnie bought a 4-track tape recorder, and began experimenting by recording his ideas and building them into songs. It was evident that he had found his calling; this was the start of his journey as a songwriter.
In 1987, Shrapnel Record released Vinnie's breakout album, Mind's Eye. Vinnie was quickly heralded best new talent
in Guitar Player, Guitar, and Guitar World magazines, and Mind's Eye sold more than 100,000 copies.
Over the years Vinnie played with many legends and became a one-of-a-kind himself. In 2003, Vinnie joined the legendary group UFO (Phil Mogg, vocals; Pete Way, bass; Jason Bonham, drums; Paul Raymond, keyboards). Their first effort together as a band was the SPV Records release You Are Here (in 2004); Vinnie was a major songwriting contributor on this record. The band followed You Are Here with a worldwide tour which spanned from March 2004 to August 2005. The bands second studio effort called The Monkey Puzzle came out in 2006 and marked the return of original UFO drummer Andy Parker.
