UFO guitarist Vinnie Moore started recording solos Thursday (Dec. 11) for the new Jordan Rudess (DREAM THEATER) solo record. This will be the first time Jordan and Vinnie have recorded together since Vinnie's "Time Odyssey" record was released in 1988. Moore will be featured on two songs. Joe Satriani, Greg Howe, and Steve Morse will also be playing on the CD.
In other news, Moore's "Mind's Eye" CD has been voted one of the "50 Greatest Guitar Albums of the '80s" in the current issue of Guitar for the Practicing Musician magazine.
The first UFO album to feature Moore, "You Are Here" is due on February 16, 2004 in Europe through SPV Records. The CD was recorded near Hannover, Germany with producer Tommy Newton (HELLOWEEN, CONCEPTION, VICTORY, ELEGY, ARK, TEN) and contains 11 new songs, including "The Spark That Is Us", "Slipping Away", "Mr. Freeze", "Swallow", and "Looking For The Wild One".
