The musicians who have passed through the ranks of UFO reads like a Who's Who of rock: Pete Way (God bless him), Michael Schenker, Larry Wallis, Bernie Marsden, Paul Chapman, Billy Sheehan, Jason Bonham, Aynsley Dunbar and more have all done time in one of the most enduring, and endearing, bands. High profile admirers include Metallica, Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam and Slash from Guns N' Roses amongst others. Their songs, like 'Doctor, Doctor', 'Lights Out' and 'Rock Bottom' are rock classics. The secret to their success is their longevity. Formed in 1969, UFO are still rockin' to this day, with founder member Phil Mogg on vocals. They have cut over 20 albums during this time. Plus, they never stop working and pleasing old fans, as well as winning new ones. This year they are at Sweden Rock and Download, Donington - take your ear plugs. This affectionate look at the band, which has a reputation for playing loud and partying hard, covers their beginnings as space rockers in London, through to the 'glory years' with Schenker in the 1970s, and the various break-ups and reformations.
Includes a foreword by the American broadcaster and author Eddie Trunk and an afterword by British rock journalist Peter Makowski, who are both fans of the band.
