It's Official: VINNIE MOORE, JASON BONHAM Join UFO

As first reported here on July 18, guitarist extraordinaire Vinnie Moore has now officially joined UFO as the replacement for Michael Schenker. Moore will reportedly join the rest of the group — vocalist Phil Mogg, bassist Pete Way, keyboardist Paul Raymond and drummer Jason Bonham — at an undisclosed studio in September to begin work on the band's next album, tentatively due next summer. UFO were previously in talks with former EUROPE/DOKKEN guitarist John Norum to replace Schenker, but eventually decided to look elsewhere while Norum continued work on his upcoming solo album.
