And this is why...
It's now 10 years since Vinnie Moore's first album with UFO, You Are here in 2004 .
So here's a great UFO show with Vinnie Moore from the 2009 tour. Sound is great and Phil Mogg is in fine form.
If you love Vinnie Moore's UFO check out the version of Mystery Train on this.
This must be the tour me and my good buddy (Thunder) Brian went to see UFO w/Jason Bonham on drums?

I'm sure we all know this boot and the video that goes with it.
At the time four guys with a common goal...Rock Domination!!
Contains a couple of bonus tracks as well.

So here's a show from back in 1990.
Unique guitar player and still hanging in there.
He's facing his illness head on and that's got to be admired.
Sound is pretty decent on this.
Here's a hundred songs in about half an hour.
They certainly had their own sound and can't be confused with anyone else.
Another band that didn't get on.
Joey and Johnny didn't speak for a number of years all because of a girl.
Joey had a girlfriend who ended up with Johnny the song to come out of this.
The KKK Took My Baby Away.
I suppose I became aware of JLH the first time I saw The Blues Brothers film.
That cool scene of him sitting down with his little amp playing in the street.
Anyway nearly an hour of the real deal.
A little bit of G.T for all you party animals out there. Tap that keg, throw a shot back, or crack one open, whatever's your pleasure. Not sure of the exact date (like it really matters), but I can tell you it's from Paris 1979, and it's an FM broadcast.

From the Hot Space era and I think it's still the only Queen album I don't have.
It was a big departure in sound even for them.
Live,a different story,they still rocked out.
Great band from their early Heavy Rock beginnings up to their more Pop/Rock output.
Check the back cover for details.
The two 12" tracks from NY aren't included.
Where would he end up on a best guitarist list?
On my list pretty near the top.

As requested in the CBox, here's Bad Co from Santa Barbra, CA. Nice sounding audience recording from the band's go-around of the States, with a guest appearance by some guy named Jimmy Page. Check out the chick at the start of Track 1, who tells someone to sit down (haven't we said that before at a show). Apparentaly this gal had class and knew what was coming.
They've recently cancelled two UK Tours due to Lemmy's health issues.
Now Lemmy is a legend but is it time for that Rickenbacker to be hung up?
Fade outs after some tunes.
Not a band I've listened to much I must admit.
Apart from a best of cd and a couple of other things.
Still going after many line up changes.
Two concerts over three cd's from the sadly missed Blues genius Stevie Ray Vaughan.
One of those guitarists who could easily play what he heard in his head.
I also love his singing that Southern drawl is pretty cool.

What can you say about Bon Scott?
One of the greatest frontmen in Rock.
Just as AC/DC were about to breakout to worldwide success we all know what happened next.
CD1 Hammersmith Odeon,London 1979.
CD2 1-4 Marquee,London 1976
5-9 Golders Green Hippodrome 1977
After their massive success back in the 70's here we find them enjoying a second burst of popularity.

Pretty good sounding show from Tokyo '82.
Taken from a vinyl rip,early Ozzy certainly hits the spot.
Given to us by Thunderbyrd ,cheers buddy.
Just for the record here is my version of Friday. This will teach me never to stand with my mates as close to the bar again. Shit sound in that venue as the mix desk was too high up. A bit underwhelmed by BBS as well. Hey ho...
He was up near the bar so there's plenty of whoopin' and hollerin' and drunk singing.
Also a couple of Yea Ha's in Scottish accents!!
Think of the scene in the Blues Brothers where they're playing the bar behind a fence due to the rowdy crowd...

He was in bad shape on this tour and after it he checked into rehab.
He sounds pretty lifeless and lethargic on this.
Most of the songs are only excerpts so there's not much music on here but it is not a very well documented era.
Seemingly taken from the TV broadcast Alice Cooper and Friends.
Here's one sent in from Brother Norm thru the CBox. Excellent audience recording from the Red Rocker. Sammy has to be the busiest dude in music these days; running a tequila company, touring, doing Chickenfoot sessions, ect.......
Here's my recording of Blackberry Smoke last night in Glasgow.
Their first time in Scotland and the start of their first UK Tour.
Went with my brother Big Al and we thought BBS were great.
I thought they got a great reception from the crowd.
No frills no flash just that Southern Rock with a Country influence.
I was on the floor pretty central.
I'm happy with the recording sounds pretty good.
Although there are a few talkers nearby.
Why listen to the band when you can talk all the way through it?
And!!...I also met HRC contributor Thunderbyrd there.
We shot each other a couple of emails before and he described himself to me.
Just look for a guy that looks like George Clooney.
So obviously I looked for a fat guy in a checked shirt!!
He was there with his wife who we shall call...uh...Mrs Thunderbyrd.
All joking aside it was good to put a face to the name and they were a very cool couple.
Enjoy the show.
FM recording from the Floyd guitarist between the Waters break-up, and the re-launch of the Floyd in the latter 80's. Leaning heavy on the About Face disc with a couple of PF tunes thrown in. Too bad he didn't do No Way Out Of Here, one of my fave Gilmour tunes.
Some early Zep for 'ya. Pretty good audience recording from the 2nd U.S. tour promoting the debut disc with a peek into the 2nd disc (Heartbreaker). Not real sure if this is complete or not.
